Titilope Sonuga

Deeply immersed in Yoruba oral tradition, Titilope formed a love of spoken word at a young age. Born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, her family immigrated to Edmonton, Alberta when Titilope was 13 years old. She describes her poetry as a means to reconcile her African roots with her Canadian identity. She has performed at The Roar Spoken Word Festival, Poetree Open Mic, Afro Quiz, Legacies 2008, Ribbon Rouge and several events around Edmonton. She recently graduated from the University of Alberta with a Civil Engineering degree, but continues to share her words within the Edmonton community. Her words are pure, honest, and grab straight for the heart.  Visit her BLOG.
