If you are in Abuja tonight you could do worse than visit JB’s Bar and Grill, Maitama Amusement Park, Maitama, at 6.30pm, where I will be reading from Diaries of a Dead African, as well as from my soon-to-be-released, The Ghost of Sani Abacha. Not sure what poetry I will be reading – but I will take a couple of requests…
Occasion? Infusion’s monthly gig, hosted by Lola Shoneyin & Dapo Oyewole. Here is their mission statement pulled from their facebook page:
Bring together readings by established or budding authors and poets, floetic music, humour, drama, eclectic art and unpredictable performances on a Thursday night… and you have Infusion.
Infusion is a regular evening of book readings, music, stand up comedy, open mic poetry and poetry slams, with an artistic ambience. Infusion events take place on the last Thursday of the month, bringing together all lovers of art, literature, music and entertainment.
Hosted in the charming environs of JB’s Grill in Maitama Amusement Park, Abuja, you get to try out the exclusive Infusion Cocktail, the Infusion Platter and Infusion Cupcakes for your culinary delight.
Infusion, as the word denotes, seeks to inject a new artistic pulse into the Abuja social diary. A place to wine, dine and enjoy good poetry, art, music and literature.
On this 20th outing of Infusion (when I have lots of stuff on my mind) I get to see things for myself. Join us if you are a taxi-ride away.
