Acknowledgement/Welcome

I’m excited that you’re here, you can see me dancing (to Jeremaih Gyang’s Ladi’s song). I’m unofficial in this page, you’re warmly welcome.

Okay, so I write poetry because I love everything about books. Books are not books if they were not written and read. So it is one thing I love to do even though I never was a literature major. It all had started from writing short love letters for clients in high school. Haha! Now the words I penned down gave way to sentences and those sentences produced paragraphs and those paragraphs gave way to whole pages and pages make up books, right? I tell and write African folklore/tales. And I invented a style I call poetale. I hope that one day my characters will come alive. But if you’re reading me that means they are alive already. I thank you again.

To see more of what I have done or working on visit the ACCOLADES page.

Most of the work here are forms of Nature, pastoral and love poems. I did collabos with some African poets.

Please do not hesitate to tell me what you think about my work. Click the GO TO POETRY page to start reading. You can connect with me on social media by visiting the CONNECT or ABOUT ME page.

I won’t fail to thank those who encourage me and help me in one way or the other in this journey of writing. I thank those who have a little more time to comment, like and share my work and to all my followers I say a big thank you.

I hope to travel across the continent of Africa to collect and write down folklores/tales from natives. I am convinced that there are stories untold and some may be lost. Political instability, famine and other factors may have caused this trend. It is my dream to revive the culture of storytelling and I might not be able to achieve this by myself. If you key into this dream, and able to sponsor it you can contact me through my social media outlets.

Feel free, read the blog, help it connect with more audience by sharing what may catch your fancy and let’s take West African literature to a greater height.

Yours’ penly,

OkeChukwu
