Titilope Sonuga

One of this year's Ars Poetica Festival highlights is the Canadian and Nigerian poet and performer Titilope Sonuga. Martin Solotruk, the festival's creative director, describes her as 'one of the most talented international performers and strong voices of contemporary Nigerian poetry', who 'giftedly grips the audience and constantly keeps them engaged and excited throughout her performance. When she performs, her beautiful voice, her exceptional delivery, but above all the strength of her poetry make time stand still. '

Apart from being a performer, poet and writer, Titilope Sonuga served as an ambassador for Intel's She Will Connect campaign. In 2015, she became the first Nigerian poet to perform at a presidential inauguration. Her performance at the Ars Poetica International Poetry Festival is taking place on November 17 in the A4 Centre for Contemporary Culture.
