The Efua Sutherland Drama Studios at the University of Ghana, Legon came alive on Sunday, March 12 when Gombilla The Poet and friends filled the venue for the second edition of Sobolo + Chicken Poetry Show.
Gombilla The Poet, a level 300 student of Legon surprised many who thronged to the venue for the event since poetry shows have not had such attendance in recent times. Gombilla on the night did not disappoint the audience who were at the Efua Sutherland Drama Studios for the event with his unrivalled performance.
Before the headline act took center stage, Chief Moomen, Six Strings, Khemikal, Yogendra Ahimi, Jake the juggler, Crespo and a host of other performers had come to do the John The Baptist job.
Gombilla The Poet speaking to Zionfelix.net after the event said he was shocked to see the numbers when he mounted stage to perform.
“With the number of attendees of my poetry show, I am optimistic about the future of Poetry in Ghana. It’s just a matter of time. It has never been like this before in Ghana. I am grateful to Allah. I am glad I have a solid team behind me. I am also glad my works are loved by the Good people of Ghana.” the poet told Zionfelix.net
Sobolo + Chicken Poetry Show was oganised by Andy.com Entertainment.
