The theme for Season 4 of War Of Words Video entry was “What is left for what is right,” and we got over 30 video entries/ submission from Spoken Word Poets in different parts of Nigeria .
However, only a selected number of poets can be selected to compete on stage at the main event on Saturday November 29, 2014.
So after plenty argument and disagreement, our in-house judges finally reached a consensus. Though we must mention that picking the finalists was no easy task. We know and appreciate the efforts put into all the video submissions.
We know each poet is unique in his or her own right and trying to say a poet is better than the other can be perceived as an injustice to creativity.
Thus, we say a big THANK YOU to all the poets who entered for the competition.
But the rules of the competition limits us to a certain number of poets, and so we had to follow the rules.
The finalists for the Season 4 of War Of Words -Slam Poetry Competition in no particular order, are as follows:
- Akintide Akintumile
- Olayinka Samson Aremu
