Last year, ⁦@BayoBrahms⁩ created this powerful video documenting the spirit of the #EndSARS movement, reminding us why we took to the streets in the first place. A year later, the Nigerian police is still a bastion of corruption, extrajudicial killings and extortion.

“I know, I know. I’ve announced a number of times I’m withdrawing from public life. And I meant it! For about 24 hours.” What a delight to interview Wole Soyinka in his Abeokuta sanctuary, for @nytimesbooks. 📸 by @YagazieEmezi nytimes.com/2021/09/25/books…

I've been working on my craft for over 20 years. From Riverside High School, to El Paso Community College, to UTEP, and finally my MFA at The University of Arizona; poetry has been my life and journey. So, I am proud to announce that my first book will be published by One World!!
