Description

Song of Solider & Song of Prisoner is a collection of verse that observes the paradox of history where the saviour is also a sinner in need of being saved, calling for a revolution. In simple verse written in the voice of the everyday man, Kpakiama has forged a piece that is altogether powerful and devoid of obscurantist drudgery. This lends an air of authenticity to the entire work, as most political revolutions are perpetuated and borne by ill-educated actors, hence the originality of Kpakiama’s muse. The opening lines of the work are triumphant and celebratory, in a way foreshadowing its ending, for most revolutions in Africa or elsewhere are only slaves to the tragic forces that power them.

“Kpakiama ’s poetry is undoubtedly the work of a mature mind, one whose sense of rhythm and genuine emotiveness mark him as a poet to watch among the emerging voices in contemporary Nigerian writing.”
