Where were you - by a 14 year old Spoken Word Poet.



 He was 13 years old when he first stepped on stage at WORD UP Volume 2 and got a standing ovation for his Spoken Word Poetry performance.

Now, 14 years old and close to a year later, at WORD UP Volume 5, he thrilled us with his poetic lemonade of rhymes and reason and asked us, "WHERE WERE YOU???," Well, he got another standing ovation. 

His folks named him "Increase," and it seems he increases in wisdom, wits and rhymes as his age increases. He is definitely one for the future, and the sky is his launching pad.

Watch the video below and see if you answer the question, Where were you???

WORD UP is the biggest Spoken Word Poetry event  in Nigeria. It features A-list Spoken Word Poets on the same stage.
