Divine Friday Idiong, popularly referred to as Idiong Divine, is from Iko-Eket in Eket Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State. He attended Agbassa Primary School and Nana College both in Warri, Delta State. He proceeded to Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi in Edo State to obtain both an ND and HND in Mass Communication. He has also got a PGDE from the University of Port Harcourt, Choba, Rivers State. Idiong is a qualified journalist, but has worked majorly as a teacher in Warri and in other towns in Nigeria in the past. He now works as Administrative Secretary in MGSL, Warri. He is a member of the Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM). He is the author of the books "Never Ending Poem" published in Ibadan in 2007; "Mind of Diamond" published in Eket 2012 and "The Especial Visit" published in Eket 2013. His literary prowess may perhaps lie in the unswerving paradoxes and allegories that garnish his oeuvre. “Nonetheless, Divine’s musical musing on different realities of life has something in it for every consummate arty-farty mind.” ~THE NATION, February 5, 2012.
