"Representing NAIJA" is the tag for the 31st edition of POETRY POTTER. The tag is neither ordinarily used nor used as cliche, it was creatively coined to be used for this edition of the event, by the Image/Branding Director of KKM, Mr. Segun Olawoagbo, as October is the Independence Month of Nigeria (NAIJA).

Also, Kowry Kreations Media (KKM) is going down with The Future Awards (TFA) on the "I represent Naija" theme of the 5th edition of the truly Nigerian Youth Awards, by RedStrat, this month.

There is no doubt that this edition of the event will surpass the previous in all ramifications. It's going to be a gathering of young meaning Nigerians under one room in a serene atmosphere of the Rounda Hall, National Library, Alagomeji, Yaba, Lagos. To discuss the present and future of Nigeria creatively, with rendition of rhythmic words and lines which will be accompanied with nice rhythm.

As Yoruba will say, ariwo ko o, it's not unnecessary noise that will drive home the change (the real change) that the country is currently clamouring for, it's by meeting and discussing the issues with creative approach. And this is the reason why KOWRY KREATIONS MEDIA is in partnership with THE FUTURE AWARDS for this very edition of the literary arts monthly platform.

Therefore, let us all, the youth stand up and say YES to change today, in securing our FUTURE. Because yesterday is gone, today we can't stop but tomorrow we can predict like the world leaders and organisations i.e USA, UK; UNESCO, WHO, G8 etc.

As announced by the Producer and Artistic Director of The GTBank Poetry Festival, Ben Tomoloju, in his press release on the festival, Poetry Potter, as a literary arts (poetry/spokenword) platform has been chosen to be part of the maiden edition of the would-be yearly festival, sponsored by GTBank.

As a literary arts platform, Poetry Potter has won the hearts of arts and literary enthusiasts. It is wholly youth-centred and does not alienate adults who are regarded as the reservoir of wisdom from which the younger generation must drink.

And for the first time in the history of the monthly event, the organisers will be coordinating the first POETRY POTTER Youth Forum during the festival. The catch is, "poetry-its genesis and future in the Nigeria literary arts scene."

The renowned poet, Odia Ofeimun, will take us through the genesis of poetry, root of poetry in Nigeria and Africa, Akeem Lasisi, the folk poet, will expatiate on it from the folk/orature point of view, while Sage Has.son, the Nigerian spokenword exponent will tackle the present phase of poetry which is "Hip-Poetry," and the future of poetry/spokenword in Nigeria will be decided afterwords.

Come join the discussion. It's going to be an evening of talk and performances as the OPEN MIC segment of Poetry Potter will be alive.
