It’s Eye rhymes and Shadows in Ibadan
By Gbenga Adeniji
The May edition of Artmosphere tagged Eye Rhymes and Shadows hosted two Nigerian authors, Ahmed Maiwada and Saddiq Dzukogi, who authored the collection, Sunbeams and Shadows. The event was held in Ibadan, Oyo State last Saturday. The authors interacted with the audience on the basis of the content of their works, their ‘coming-of-age’ stories, styles and also related their works to fundamental and current issues in the society. Organisers of the event said as much as the country was engulfed by unpalatable occurrences stemming from northern Nigeria in recent times, the authors cut the symbols of hope for creativity and literariness in their home states and in Nigeria as a whole. Artmosphere is organised by WriteHouse Collective, a creative enterprise initiative and supported by ibridge Hub, a place for people with great ideas to meet, learn and work. It is a monthly arts event designed to create an ambience for literary, creative and intellectual empowerment in Nigeria.
