M. Hajji Ahmed is a poet cum author born in Somalia who grew up in South Africa. His dynamic nature for the work of art has seen his appear in plays like "Siyaasada Maanta", Neighbors and "A crack in the sky". Ahmed's desire to change the narrative about Africans inspired and led to the establishment of the first Somali comic book company named "Bahdoon Comics" and Bahdoon Entertainment LLC which are a part of his lifetime goals. In 2015, he left Africa for America which nursed a motive to preserve Somali culture and heritage and pave the way for the generation unborn by publishing Bahdoon Comics because his generation and the ones before have always been misrepresented and misquoted. Ahmed connects the dots both forward and back with his creative deft that makes him second to none even though the Somali civil war that lasted for thirty years has left a negative mark on Somali's poetic creativity .
