The memories of SOS Poetry Slam 1.0 is still very fresh in the memories of attendees, from the unusual stage design to the lads and lasses who took the emblem of sages upon their shoulders to the refreshing food and drink items served.
Most exciting of the many moments to many was the feeling of infectious pride written over the faces of our top three (3) finalists, posing with their respective demo cheques, having their names boldly engraved.
Many regular slam poetry attendees in Lagos-Nigeria would customarily give their vote to Increase Nathaniel, JYC and Fr33zinPaul as likely winners before the slam, but then as fate would have it, Toby Abiodun came out the surprising champion, emerging top in all the 3 rounds, while Increase Nathaniel and McNaevetes Chibuzo came 1st and 2nd runner-up respectively. So, never-say-never, you could be next slam champion.
The second edition promises to be far-more exciting and rewarding with media partnership from some of Nigeria’s renowned media outfit, plus consolation prizes for competitors and attendees too. Please, see fliers for details. Follow our social media account below
