Remember the #NaijaPoetrySlam we announced some weeks ago? The list of the finalists is out. According to Bassey Ikpi
The finalists for #NaijaPoetrySlam have been selected!
Congratulations to Fex InspiroLogos, Ikenna Onyegbula, Joshua Tanko, Uche Uwadinachi, Amanda Bisong, Kenneth Ibegwam, Chiedu Ifeozo, Obiamaka Ifejika and Jeffery (Plumbtifex). Another finalist, fan favorite, Akwaeke Emezi was unable to make the trip to Lagos so she graciously pulled out of the competition.
Because of the amazing response to the slam and the fact that so many were new to the process and may be more comfortable performing live, I’ve decided to hold an open call for the last spots of the slam. This is open to everyone who sent in a video and to people who may have missed the deadline. I will keep you informed in the weeks to come. Thank you so much for participating! I can not wait to see you all when I get to Nigeria.
