Hey guys!! I did an interview on one of your favourite spoken word poet from the Toronto region, Fumilade Taiwo popularly known as F. Taiwo. Enjoyy!
You’re a an aspiring spoken word poet, how did that come about ?
Poetry came about from early relationships really,girls…lol But I took a class in grade 12, opened me up to poetry outside of writing to girls from then, I just kept on writing, about whatever came to mind, watched youtube videos, and here I am today.
Awww!! That’s nice, so of recent, what do you find yourself writing about ?
Life experiences, girls still of course, anything that inspires me.
I really like your Am i A Man Video, what Inspired that piece ?
Was really trying to define myself, that whole self-discovery thing. I think that’s what inspired it.
Do you a have piece in particular that you’re most proud of ? If so, which is it and why ?
My poem “Lagos” I believe. I couldn’t sleep one night,still reliving my trip to Lagos last Christmas and I wrote it. I think its the best way I’ve been able to capture anything on paper.
Do you have a video for it already or do you plan on making one ? If so when should we expect it ?
No video yet, I plan on making one as soon as I get to Lagos again. Its my best piece personally and I would want to do it right.
Noo😦 you’re going to make us wait after such a vivid description ! Least you could do is give us a line from it
“You know nothing about courage till you’ve sat front seat of yellow buses, the conductor one leg in one leg out the wind in his hair, he knows no fear, singing sweet songs in your ear…Oshodi, Oshodi, Bo le bo le!” ~ Lagos by F. Taiwo
You should let me know when you drop the video !!! Talking about videos, your video ” Letter To My Future Wife” premieres in a few minutes ! Tell us, what it’s about ? What or who inspired it, who it’s dedicated too if there is ?
