Titilope Sonuga is an award-winning poet based in Lagos, Nigeria. She renders, both in verse and in performance, a remarkable elegance of craft, a quality of rootedness and an unflinching womanhood that makes her one of Nigeria’s leading performance poets. She has graced stages across the country and internationally, and in May 2015, she was the first poet to appear at a Nigerian presidential inauguration. Titilope plays the role of Eki in the NdaniTV hit series, ‘Gidi Up’ and is currently Intel's ambassador for its She Will Connect Program across Nigeria. Her new collection of poems is forthcoming in 2016.
