Where I was Born

by Ikeogu Oke

' effect the African poet or writer, like his counterparts from other regions of the globe, is essentially an individual...and his works equally reveal that in literature, reality is not infrequently coloured by the writer's own unique perspective... Whether an African poet may adopt any verse form, whether free, bound, local, alien, avant-garde or whatnot, and in doing so still communicate African values effectively, that should be a matter for choice and ability on the part of the poet... I am of the view that African values can be dressed up in any poetic garment...' - a collection of poetry notable for its simplicity and directness. The poet is a veteran anti-corruption campaigner.
