Solomon Ben Olonade debuts with Nigerian Child

Title : Nigerian Child (World’s Best Father & Other Poems)
Genre : Poetry
Pages : 40
Publisher:Wicecom Press and Publishers


It’s amazing that poets are not as celebrated as Novelists in the literary world, or should i narrow that down to Nigeria. Even the various literary Awards that exist dominantly tilt towards the prose angle. Despite the disparity, more Nigerian poets are giving expression to their thoughts through this unique medium. The beauty of poetry lies in the ability of one to succinctly talk about a particular issue/theme in stanzas (rhyming or not) in contra-distinction to prose writing where expression is limitless on the pages of a book. Solomon Ben Olonade launches forth into the beautiful, inspiring, thought provoking world of poetry with his first published work Nigerian Child, World’s Best Father & Other Poems.

It is the first of the three volumes of poetry collection and it explores significant themes relating to life and living in post colonial Nigeria. The poet’s vision is however, global and his active belief in change, development and greatness is truly infectious. This is a collection that shows depth of thought and thoroughness of craftsmanship. The simplicity of the poems and the penetrating power that reaches into the innermost parts of the human frame are the greatest strength of this work.
