Last week I brought you the Art Lovers Haven, today I’m leading you to a ground-breaking poetry event and a Festival promoting all things beautiful about Art. How much do you lovers out there love me now? 😉
Such an intriguing name. It gnawed at me when my friends were discussing attending “AKÉ” and I had zero idea what they were talking about with such an interesting name too. F (henceforth called”The Writer”) kept asking:
“Who will be at AKÉ?”
I no go even lie, I thought it was a place. I kept thinking, “why haven’t I heard of this place?”
To confirm my lastma, I proceeded to ask and was sarcastically replied by The Writer
“Google is your friend”
Shebi una see?
I’m a self-acclaimed nice person, so I’m bringing AKÉ to you.
I will not be a town crier on this one, but just know that it begins on the 18th of November. They have some interesting master classes as well. To register, visit www.akefestival.org.
On the other hand, if you are looking for something fun yet laid back to do after work today then you should head to Terra Kulture by 7pm as some of Nigeria’s finest spoken word poets will be performing what they say is the first of its kind in Nigeria
