LIST OF ALL ENTRIES, EGC TOP 50 CONTEMPORARY POETS WHO ROCKED NIGERIA IN 2014



Dear Literary friends,

It’s time again to recognize the creativity and efforts of fellow Poets we called for you to nominate some weeks ago. The nominations came in categories, as in Top Written Poets, Top Spoken Poets, Top Poetry Promoters, & Top Cross over Poets (for Poets who did well in other creative areas like Prose, Drama, etc.). We also had 3 ways of gathering nomination points which are general public, a list of panelists, and EGC in-house nominations (which include online and real-time findings). The 4 categories eventually lead to final Top 50 lists as a result of number of points/frequency received from nominations in each category. Before we proceed, we appreciate the works of Poets placed on panel such as Adewale Oreshade, DONNA, Ekemini Joseph, Sam DE Poet, Femi Morgan, Adedayo Agarau, Kemjy Xtien, Stephen Adinoyi, etc. Their findings served as a balance to the judgments of all and sundry. We also appreciate those who were not on panel who sent in their nominations.

Thank you.
