WRR CONGRATULATES IKEOGU IKE, WINNER NLNG LITERATURE PRIZE 2017

Congratulations Ike Ikeogu for winning the 2017 Liquefied Natural Gas Limited Nigerian Prize for Literature!

“I worked on it for 27 years…I thought of writing a poem and soon had about twenty lines. I started thinking of how to develop it into a long narrative, an epic, because the lines struck me as epic in their movement and rhythm. Afterward, other sets of lines came to me and I wrote them down. I worked on the poem continuously. From the time the first line came to me and when the last line came, spanned 25 years.. ” 

— Ikeogu Oke, speaking about his book ‘The Heresiad,’ which won the 2017 NLNG Prize (in an interview with Daily Trust newspaper ‘I learnt of my NLNG prize win on Facebook – Oke’

Indeed, a book such as ‘The Heresaid’ is worthy of such resounding victory and a dream of 25 years, crowned with such success, is one to be collectively happy about.

The entire Words Rhymes & Rhythm family celebrates this much deserved success with you.

We wish you even more laurels.
