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.
We look forward to seeing you at the concert, and with a few days to
the show, we are working nonstop to ensure the concert is a blast. This
is something you don’t want to miss, as The Consortium assures you this
year’s concert is one that would go down in history.
