2013 POETS NOMINATIONS, LIST OF ALL ENTRIES


Just few days ago we concluded a campaign for people to submit names of Contemporary Nigerians Poets whom they feel rocked Nigeria in year 2013. We also included assistance of some revered Poets/lovers of poetry who did research with us. We appreciate the response and we promise the result will be on EGC blog first week in year 2014. Nevertheless we feel the need to bring out a list of Poets nominated first; if you have objection that anyone of them is not a poet, kindly mail egcmails@gmail.com

The only names excluded are names of few who nominated only themselves; we do not encourage this, (though we admire their belief in self) they did not meet up the standard of nominating minimum of 13 poets.

Note that the names you see here were submitted by poets/fans from North, West, East, and Southern Nigeria; and we are sure that is fair enough. Also note that this survey was done for the sole aim of promotion of poetry and nothing else... The names you will see are those whom people nominated, however we are currently working on computation and by the time it’s ready we will be giving just Names of the Top 50, Name; Picture and Snippet detail of Top 20; and Name, Picture, and Detail of Top 10. We are hoping to transform this into a live Awards ceremony soon and we welcome anyone willing to partner with EGC on it. Below are the names of poets people nominated (in alphabetical order) to be on the List of Top 50 Contemporary Poets who rocked Nigeria in year 2013:
