About Mary


My name is Mary Adeyinka Adepoju. I am a Research Scientist and hold a Doctor of Philosophy in Post-Harvest Technology and Food Safety.

I am not all about academics, but also a seasoned entrepreneur.

I am the owner of the thriving and innovative Martella Ventures [a Hub of Martella Treats], a cake and confectionery outlet, Martella Foods, a food packaging business and Martella Emporium – a fashion outlet.

I try my possible best to keep innovating and building myself up. I also like to invest and help others and one way I have done this recently is by authoring a book, Single and Waiting my debut book. A book I describe as a dream actualised and a testimony.

In the book, I encourage men and women waiting for life partners to use the waiting period to add values to themselves, build life principles and prepare for the future they hope for.  I hope this book helps mature singles who are waiting for marriage to not resent this phase of their life, change their perspective, appreciate the phase and adequately harness it for their self-development and value-addition.

I also believe married couples will glean wisdom from this book because I touched on areas that encourage developing appropriate life values and principles, building appropriate social circles, parenting and lots more.
