Adeola Chinede is an inmate at Litchfield Penitentiary Maximum Security. She was introduced in season 6 and is portrayed by Sipiwe Moyo.


Adeola is a very intelligent woman, though also has her quirks. She is often comedic, and very popular around her block. She is friendly to people and sarcastic a lot. She is willing to be friends with C-Block 


Before Litchfeild Edit

Adeola was an evolutionary anthropologist in Lagos, Nigeria "mainly interested in human behaviour in a cultural context and the shifting dynamics of tribalism, and in particular, how the disputes between social psychology and behavioural ecology negotiated themselves on a micro scale." She may have been a poacher as she very vividly describes the process of an animal being killed and butchered ("State of the Uterus")

She mentioned "walking tall with a machete," potientially a reference to the reason she is incarcerated. (Chocolate Chip Nookie")

Season SixEdit

While in AdSeg, Gloria Mendoza attempts to get Blanca Flores into the chapel so she may discuss the situation with Maria Ruiz by claiming a religious festival is occurring. Blanca explains she needs to go to the chapel and pray. Adeola joins in, and requests to go too. While in the chapel, Adeola pretends to pray while Gloria tells Blanca of her plan. ("Shitstorm Coming")

Piper arrives at the library and asks if they have any memoirs. Initially, she refuses to answer as Piper's C-Block defecated in their laundry. However, Piper apologises on behalf and states that she didn't participate. Adeola then says that there are no memoirs and says there are law books. Piper says she didn't murder someone to which Adeola replied "Charlize Theron" Piper comes back asking about some photos she found and Adeola explains a cameraman used to come around. She states that all the good photos for 'porn' have been taken and 30 years the blocks had peace. Piper thanks her for her help and we are shown Adeola's book that she's reading titled "Murder v. Self Defence" ("Changing Winds")

Adeola and Daya arrive for maintanence work. Daya says they should split up and get the work done faster, but Adeola says she doesn't want to spend more time in her cell. Daya says she'll clean the visitation bathroom and Adeola will clean the actual visitation room and they shake on it ("Gordons")

She is seen at mass and abandons her original reading to inform the attendees about the Cult of the Holy Virgin. The pastor says that it isn't real as she preaches it is secret and only for women. Piper and Maria laugh at her. ("Break the String")

She is made move by Daya but protests by saying some day she'll be "walking tall with a machete" again. ("Chocolate Chip Nookie")

Lorna and Adeola are seen admiring her faecal matter, attempting to determine the sex of her baby. Adeola claims it will be a girl due to the shape and due to the fact that Lorna has gotten uglier. Nicky tells Adeola that she believes some rats have returned. Adeola corrects Nicky, and explains they all died from poison, and leaves. ("Well This Took a Dark Turn")
