Rhyme Sonny in a performancePeople Of Equal Thoughts and Spirit (P.O.E.T.S), a vigorous and talented group of poets and creative artists from all walks of life presents the birth of a new phase of the performance art of Poetry and Spoken Word in Ghana dubbed “ALEWA”. It will hold at Sweetie’s Lounge, off the Spintex Road on October 2 to add the group’s impetus to firmly establish the field of poetry in Ghana.
ALEWA will feature some of the best spoken word artistes to have come out of Ghana including the likes of DK Osei Yaw, Rhymesonny, Mutombo da poet, Yom, Chief Moomen, Kwame Write, O’Zionn, Selikem,Monalisa and the new queen of the art Poetra Ama Asantewaa and many other poets. Mariska Taylor-Darko is the guest poet of the day. Our author of the month, Alba K. Sunprim, author of “The Imported Ghanaian” will review her latest book “A Place Of Beautiful Nonsense.”

Many art lovers and enthusiasts including Sir Black Benedict, an acclaimed Spoken Word artiste, have expressed joy at such an initiative. Poetry has a hidden power to arouse in people the emotion and spirit to do. The interest that people in Ghana have started showing in this art form cannot be understated. Recent poetry activities in the capital have shown that the rebirth of poetry has really come to stay and affect the nation positively.

The event targets all and sundry and has open its rooms for investors and sponsors to come have a feel of the newest and promising taste in entertainment and education in Ghana. We seek poets, dancers, playwrights, novelists, authors, spoken word artists, performers, musicians and all lovers of the creative arts to come witness a spectacle of the vision in creativity that P.O.E.T.S is spearheading.

However, for the first time, dramatization, sound effects, props, lighting and projection will be ever at their optimum, to ensure a pedigree and pedestal of quality visual creativity in poetry and creative arts that has never been served on any platform ever in Ghana.
