The finalists for War Of Words Season 2 are.....!!!






For this 2nd edition of War Of Words, we had a total of 22 video entries/ submission from Spoken Word Poets in different parts of Nigeria using the theme "Be The Change You Seek."  

 However, only 16 poets can be selected to compete on stage at the main event on Sunday December 15, 2013. 

So after plenty argument and disagreement, our in-house judges finally reached a consensus.  Though we must mention that picking the 16 finalists was no easy task. We know and appreciate the efforts put into all the video submissions. 

We know each poet is unique in his or her own right and trying to say a poet is better than the other can be perceived as an injustice to creativity. 

Thus, we say a big THANK YOU to all the poets who entered for the competition. 

But the rules of the competition limits us to 15 poets, but we decided to pick 16 poets (we no try??). 

The 16 finalists for the Season 2 of War Of Words -Slam Poetry Competition in no particular order, are as follows:
  1. Slimzy
  2. Kruseaphix
  3. Mac Dave
  4. Shegzrhym
  5. I am Rage
  6. Chika Jones aka Scribblelirian 
  7. Thinkingpen
  8. Prestige d WordSmith
  9. Olaide Afolabi aka PoetStreet
  10. High On Word

  12. Yetunde George
  13. Foursyte Bogani

  15. Osigwe Benjamin
  16. Ehiz d poet
