Shihan performing at the workshop on The Business of Spoken Word Poetry in Lagos, Nigeria.


We promised we were going to bring him, 
and indeed we did.
We had Shihan Van Clief live in Nigeria from May 16 to 19 2013.
On May 17, 2013 
Shihan was at The Lit Cafe, 
which is on the first floor of Ozone Cinemas Building 
Sabo, Yaba, Lagos.
He gave useful tips on how to run 
The Business of Spoken Word Poetry.

Why him? 
Well, why not him? 
After all, he has been doing it for over 17 years now and that is what he lives on full time.
The video clip/ link was the poem he did at the workshop, 
and wow, 
Shihan is indeed a "great man" 
just like my friend Ndeme :).
