Our dream has always been to create a vibrant Spoken Word Poetry industry in Nigeria, so our events and activities are never about us, but its all about the poets. We don’t believe in “selfie,” but rather, we believe in using the little we have for the benefit of as many poets as possible.
Thus, we thank God that while we still expect the usual “bigger blessings” (aka Sponsorship), He has shown up in different ways that we had never thought of.
For example, Atilola, who is one of the poets that we have a big hand in her development and that has performed severally on most of our platforms, traveled on Sunday December 15, 2013 (all expenses paid by UN) to Geneva, Switzerland, and she will perform at a UN organised event on Thursday December 19, 2013.
Truth is, its not our doing, na Baba God. We were only asked to recommend young female poets via twitter by someone we’ve never met face to face before. The rest as they say, is now history.
So whatsoever your hand finds to do, please do it well. Don’t focus on yourself alone, help and also invest in people, cos its also people God will use to lift you up.
This is just one of our testimonies for 2013, stay tuned for more as we near the end of the year.
These are some of the pictures she sent to us.
Please stay tuned for more pictures and the video of her performance at the UN event which holds on Thursday December 19, 2013.
