SOS Poetry Slam 1.0 was indeed a revelation of revolution in the art of spoken word poetry in Nigeria, from the first-of-its-kind stage design made of painted tyres, African prints etc to the surprising finalists. To say this art of spoken poetry is fast becoming a Bolt in the sprint is not an over-emphasized hyperbole.

 It comes with entertainment, mesmerizing rhymes, motivation and most conspicuous is its ability to invoke emotions, cursing the audience to shed genuine tears, far from the Crocodile kind-of-trick.

 If SOS Poetry Slam was a bomb, this time around, expect an explosion with media partnerships from some of Nigeria's biggest online news and entertainment outfits, coupled with lots of consolation prizes, even for the attendees.
