  • David Adetayo is a member of The List's news team.
  • He brings over five years of experience writing and creating content involving lifestyle topics for some of the biggest media outlets and companies in his native, Nigeria, to The List.
  • In addition to lifestyle content, David has also written and edited health-related articles, and enjoys reading them as much as he enjoys creating them.


Despite a background in law, David has always been fascinated with writing. On a whim, he jumped into lifestyle journalism immediately after university and has never looked back. He has since been published by media outlets such as Ringier Africa and Pulse Nigeria. Before joining The List, he also helped companies in finance, pharmaceuticals, tech, fashion, and beauty with words for various marketing campaigns.


David holds a law degree from Nigeria's prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, and while it may not have put him in a courtroom, his educational years solidified his love for the written word.
