It is rather strange to find a technology-based website devote its time to the development of raw talents in the most unconventional form of art. This is exactly what has been doing for the past six months with its Spoken Word Hangout, which is the brand’s way of giving back to a community of Young Nigerians who want to harness their skills in the craft of Spoken Word.

The monthly hangout is targeted at tackling core social issues using poetry, which has been successfully done over the past six months by an open community of Young Nigerian Spoken Word artists.

The event held at Impact Hub Lagos saw an in-flock of students of the University of Lagos as well as Yaba College Technology Lagos as they battle for the prize money attached to the event.

Infinix Mobility Limited was present at the CSR event to support the technology news site, beyond just what it had done before the event. As it was clear from the turnout of staff of the mobile brand at the event that the brand found itself in a perfect event that had its target audience housed outside the conventional theatrics of music and dance.   

The theme of the month which focused on Sex Trafficking: Slavery-Saving saw Ikomu David Kayode, who goes by the stage name KC Pwesh emerge the winner of this month’s Spoken Word Battle.  Also, in attendance at the event was Ace Comedian Omo Baba (Fagade Olufemi) who was the host of the event.

If you missed this event, then you should anticipate the next edition on the last Friday of this month at the same venue.
