Ibadan-based publishing house WriteHouse Collective has released Servio Gbadamosi’s debut poetry collection A Tributary in Servitude . The book release was marked in a special February edition of the monthly Artmosphere literary reading event by the publishing house, holding last Saturday February the 21st, 2015 at NuStreams Conference and Civic, Centre, Km 110 Abeokuta Road, Alalubosa GRA, Ibadan, Nigeria.
A Tributary in Servitude captures the complex struggles of a generation whose words have been silenced, whose rage and search for meaning have been quietened. Divided into six sections that trace the course of Africa’s servitude through a maze of histories, politics, social upheavals, prophesies and personal struggles; the poet deftly weaves metaphorical threads into a tapestry of songs that flow from different tributaries into the sea of universal existence.
Servio Gbadamosi lives in Ibadan, Nigeria. He works with emerging writers across the country providing multiple development and promotional platforms. His works have appeared online as well as in newspapers and anthologies like Crossroads, an anthology of poems published in honor of the late acclaimed Nigerian poet Christopher Okigbo.
