This was my first trip to Abuja, ever. I had been shortlisted for the Korean Nigerian Poetry Fiesta award and I made the long trip to Abuja for the event. It was held at the Korean Cultural Center Nigeria, Rivers house, Central Business District, Abuja.
Mind you I had never had my work publicly recognized prior to this, and so it was exciting. I got to meet a lot of poets, writers and personalities-most notably Adam Abubakar (winner of NLNG Literary prize), whom I got an autograph from.
