One of Naija's finest Spoken Word Poet, Obii....!!!





Obii is a lady that came from nowhere, (okay somewhere that we did not know before), and won the maiden edition of the Naija Poetry Slam competition hosted by Bassey Ikpi in 2012.

She was at WORD UP Volume 2 and 3, and she blew us away with words. This piece done in the video below by Obii is one of the best spoken word poem I have ever heard. 

If you doubt this, just listen down to the last line, and I bet that you will shout.  Do holla back with your comments, and don't lie that you did not shout o!!!

Obii will be live at WORD UP Volume 5 coming up on August 17, 2013 at TerraKuluture Hall, Victoria Island, Lagos from 2pm.

WORD UP is the biggest Spoken Word Poetry Event in Nigeria and holds in February, May, August and November of every year. 

It features the best Spoken Word Poets across Nigeria and even the world all on one stage.
