Introducing the first set of poets.
They stand accused of speaking for African tradition
1. NATIVE GIRL


I am the Nativegirl, I am Odomankoma's weaver
I weave beautiful fabrics with words, my woven clothes cannot be compared to Bonwire Kente.
I am a writer who uses her talent to address social issues. I am also passionate about tradition. My keen interest in women affairs has made many seen me as a feminist. I love to empower women,because a woman is like a tea bag, you will never know how strong she is, till she gets into hot water.
I stand accused of being the poet who is best at writing traditional and women empowerment poems.

2. PIESARE THE BLACK POET

I am Piesare The Black Poet, from Ghana.
*Piesare The Black Poet* lives to read and right, but loves writing about Africa (the black land), words them out in poetry.
In my eyes sleeps something called love that I have yet to see,
it is told by other men, not myself,
that the love for the land exist no more.
If there's no Africa,
There's no me,
For I am Africa,
The beauty you search.
*I am Piesare The Black Poet*
