Its time to separate the chaff from the wheat, its time to get a winner for War Of Words Season 6 (Nigeria’s biggest Slam Poetry Competition). Over 40 video entries from all over Nigeria, but we can have only one winner.
We plan to do the final leg of War Of Words Season 6 from August to September 2017. But instead of a one day event, we will do it over 4 weekends i.e. 3 semifinals and one final featuring over 40 poets from all over Nigeria (who had sent in videos based on the competition’s theme, I bleed Green).
The 3 semifinals will hold in 3 different locations, namely: Gbagada, Ogudu/Ikeja, and Surulere/ Festac. This will create more awareness and customer/ audience interaction. The proposed venue for the final is the new Terra Kulture Hall in Victoria Island, Lagos.
From War Of Words Season 1 to 5, each of these past slam poetry competition had 15 poets competing to be the slam champion. Each of these events has 3 rounds and each produced a minimum of 30 video clips of exciting poetry performances. For War Of Words Season 6, we have 40 pre- selected poets from different States in Nigeria. So with 3 semifinals and a final, we will generate over 100 video clips of awesome poetry performances. To be posted and promoted 2 per week for the next 52 weeks.
More details coming soon.
