'A POET WHO DIED BY HIS POEM' by Godspower Oshodin
Nigerian poet chooses Dubai to launch his highly anticipated book
By: Grace & Garbo
A POET WHO DIED BY HIS POEM is a 214 pages collection of poems accompanied by powerful quotes from the author. Trailing on various poetic conversations from Global Politics, Love, Hate, Emotions, Family, Global Events, Religion, History, Education, Romance, Activism, Justice, Culture, and Art, the compilation was nurtured out of decades of social frustrations penned as a form of relief. The author's own experiences are expressed vehemently through every narration while taking readers on a journey of awakening.
"I chose to launch my book in Dubai, because of the poetry culture embodied across Arabia. My time in the city, exposed me to its heritage and traditions, making it an ideal location for global release. My ambition is to create a footprint for young African writers to collaborate with Arab poets. African literature isn't fully exposed in the Middle Eastern, this is an opportunity to develop and export literature culture exchange. I'm a fan of High Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid's Nabati poetry. I've read several of his compositions in great awe; the gravity of his work, opens you up to self-reflect and to face your inevitable reality" said Mr. Oshodin, Author & Poet.
'A POET WHO DIED BY HIS POEM' is a milestone project with poise to bridge gap wedged across modern literature culture by using poetry to connect with the current individual globalism. Administering wider engagement across creative boundaries, Mr. Oshodin is collaborating with Africa's Afro-beats genius, Victor Alfred a.k.a Vstix, to produce the first of its kind musical poetry album. Scheduled to launch in March 2021, the 15 tracks album will feature extracts from his new book and will lend voices of various poets to deliver a unique compilation in one body of work.
