Amodu Olusegun (stage name: Shegzrhymz) is a spoken word Artiste whose style can be likened to that of international spoken word Poets like Chris Webb, Eric Vaughn, Michael Lee, Jefferson Bethke, Janette..ikz and Karness Turner.
Shegzrhymz started rhyming and doing word-play from primary school, but picked up spoken word after graduating from Obafemi Awolowo University with a B.Sc in Mechanical Engineering around 2012.
He is very passionate about Jesus and sees poetry as a medium to get the gospel across to people. You can follow me on twitter: @shegzrhymz .
