According to the biblical account of creation, the entire world was made by spokenword, this is because in the beginning nothing was until there was spokenword!
Spokenword is an art traceable in origin to western Africa, where certain storytellers known as griots preserved the stories and history of the people in spoken words. Many of such historical works are still been passed on from generation to generation.
In recent times, spokenword poetry has been gaining plenty attention in the Nigerian sphere, with indigenous poets making great effort to promote the art. One of the influencers of this modern day movement Saint Rhymes has done some good justice in releasing his sophomore album titled OUTSPOKEN for us all to revel in.
OUTSPOKEN is a nine (9) track album, with a rich mix of poetic devices such as imageries, rhymes, puns, wordplays, metaphors, and more. This project is laced with music and of course the epic voice of Saint Rhymes. The contents touches on issues relating to Self discovery, Success Motivation, Love and Dating, Finances, Personal development, Sexual re-orientation and more…
