It was another “wordgasm” session at the 3rd Quarter Final of Nigeria’s Foremost Slam Poetry Competition, War Of Words Season 7. The contestants numbering ten (i.e. 8 guys and 2 ladies) from different States in Nigeria, mesmerized the audience with their poetic skills.
Poet after poet got the audience cheering loudly, maybe a little too loud, which made the heavens open up and pour down showers of blessings in appreciation.
The poets still rained words in the rain, and at the end of it all, Obafemi Thanni came out tops, followed by Jim The Poet, Yusuf Gemini Balogun, Poetic Samurai and Poetic Apostle in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th position respectively. The 6th slot to make up the Semifinalists from this Group will be decided via Twitter between Kada ShammaH and Success Akharia aka Dee Wordsmith.
