1st POETRY / SPOKENWORD REDCARPET in NIGERIA, if not in AFRICA!
The new team of Kowry Kreations Media has decided to stay put in the orgnisation's core focus, which is “adding values to arts, and literature in Nigeria and Africa at large." And it’s in this revere; KKM is ready to add new value to its monthly event tagged POETRY POTTER this month.
Because of the fact that poets and the lovers of spokenword are generally seen as literati/elites, therefore poetry/spokenword is not really selling in Nigeria and for that reason, as promotion of arts: Poetry/Spokenword, Folktale, Folklore, Folksongs, Rap, Dance, and Drama, is a basic factor in our organizational objective; we have decided to produce the 1st POETRY/SPOKENWORD REDCARPET in Nigeria, if not in AFRICA.
As it’s obvious that the business of poetry/spokenword in the country, Africa, and world over is not really as lucrative (business wise) as its sister genre, which is music, we hope introducing some social elements into the promotion of the genre will push it a bit forward from its current point. And we promise to do this consistently with integrity.
Really, innovation is what you will find peculiar to the new directors of KKM, and this could be seen in our recent events ranging from POETRY POTTER to P.A.G.E.S and FR:2 = FASHION REVOLUTION RELOADED. But this time, poetry/spokenword is our priority.
We have chosen three interesting, witty and inspiring Guest Artistes for this edition of the event and guess what, there is a riddle for you to unfold.
For the 29th edition of this monthly event, there is a scenario and here it is:
“there is a Writer who has written an interesting and groundbreaking story, he needs a Producer who is interested in basically uncommon stories and uses rare Actors/actresses for her films.”
Well, not to keep you much expectant, here is the answer to the riddle:
El Nukoya, the author of Nine Lives (a novel) is the Screenwriter.
LiLian Amah, the ace actress is the scarce Producer
OC Ukeje, the winner of Ambo 2, is the rare Actor.
We expect Nigerian poets, resident in Lagos, to be precise, to grace this event, as they will be recorded as the first set of poets in the country who takes their art to the social domain. Poetry lovers are important to this event, because it’s because of them that poetry is still alive in Nigeria.
