::Of all the boys of Plateau Private School::

We’ve unintentionally been championing visual formats recently.  This, though another video, is not just another video.

This is Inua Ellams and he’s honestly one of my favourite poets.  I have a thing for grand rhetoric and poetry reminiscent of the Romantic era of literature. He time and time again, comes good with classic form and fresh content and delivery.

Here Ellams recites a charming piece and reflects on his influences. N’joy, then head over to his website and grab a copy of Thirteen Negro Fairy tales, you won’t regret it.
