Poetry being the oldest form of literary genre started in the oral form. The bard served as entertainer and watchdog sewing spoken words to raconteur epics and legends and as well flay the erring politico.
Present day Nigeria is fraught with challenges that burden the bard in a more elevated emotive way. I Heard it Through the Grapevine rendered as oral poetry expresses some of Nigeria’s malaise from a humanistic vantage. I therefore invite you to watch and critique.
