I rode down to the monthly 'Poetry Potter' this saturday. The dance/drama/performance poetry fiesta takes place at the National Library,Herbert Macaulay Way, Yaba. It's produced by Remi Adegbite's Kowry Kreations.
Special guest was Dayo Liadi (Ijo Dee), one of Nigeria's foremost dancers and whose face is easily recognizable through Infinity's Olori Oko video.
The unassuming Dayo has been to more than 55 countries on dance missions. After speaking with (and questions from) the audience, he did a dance routine (top pic)for those present to Lara George's 'Ijoba Orun'.
In bottom picture, Dayo is flanked by the lawyer and literary activist, Deji Toye and laspapi.
