Artist Profile: Poet Titolope Sonuga of Lagos

Titilope Sonuga is a Nigerian-­Canadian poet and writer who moved to Edmonton with her family at the tender age of 13. About two years ago she moved back to her native Lagos. Her poems stand as a testament to the power of women’s voices in a country that has a problem of objectifying little girls.

“Poetry is rooted in people’s everyday experiences, but it’s very political."
