Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Today's Quote

Come on chidi. In my father’s house, there are many chambers there. room for t.s. Eliot, please, alongside the populists
Room for okigbo, I hope; room for the difficult soyinka alongside jero. Room for brilliant individual cineastes, alongside blockbusters

Subject: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Today's Quote

Blame for the relative obscurity of poetry in Nigeria should be on some poets who have over the years unnecessarily hidden poetry inside sanctums of esoteric temples. Poetry like drama and prose should be an instrument of mass socio-cultural and political mobilizations. These poets write for poets and critics only. This is a disservice to poetry.
