LIST OF ALL ENTRIES, TOP POETS WHO ROCKED NIGERIA IN 2015



LIST OF ALL ENTRIES, TOP POETS WHO ROCK NIGERIA IN 2015

It is with a great sense of appreciation to those who heeded our call for nominations that we present the List of All Poets who Rocked Nigeria in year 2015. For reasons known to most of us, we cannot mention your names, but we appreciate you for contributing your quota and believing in the larger vision of making poetry grow in Nigeria.

A total of 183 names were received in categories of (Written, Spoken, Promotion, & Cross Over) poetry considered in this annual list/ranking. As we always say, there is no likelihood of anyone getting 100% accuracy in this kind of survey, and we do not mean to say these are the best Poets in Nigeria, but according to survey they are the poets whose works were mostly appreciated in the out-gone year. Nominations were given points as they appear in each list received with lower name on the lists receiving lower score and vice versa. Points were also rated in order of priorities with general nominations getting 20%, Focused group (nominations from people regarded to have very good knowledge of poetry in Nigeria) getting 40%, and nominations from EGC in-house research team getting 40%…where two or more names tie on same points, the ones with more mention in categories were placed above.

There is however a new category, though extracted but not considered for Nomination; these are Poets who are older than the 50 years age benchmark for this project, but had a lot of things to do with the poets under watch, and, hence were mentioned in nominations. We call the category Honourable Mention.
