Spoken Word is a very powerful performance-based poetry that focuses on the aesthetics of word play and story-telling. It is often used in conjunction with other art forms, such as music, theatre, and dance, and has been an outlet for people, especially youths, to creatively express their views, emotions or life experiences. In Nigeria, Spoken Word is an emerging art-form, which is gaining strong grounds and attracting an ardent following, especially among the youths. What a great way to celebrate the Christmas season with the Truth, Poetry and Fun. Come network with Like minded people. You don’t want to miss this one of a kind concert.
