I come from the ancient city of Ibadan. I am a citizen of the world and wherever I go, whatever I be, I will not forget my origin – the city of Ibadan.
I am proud of my heritage and very appreciative for my upbringing.

running splash of rust
and gold — flung and scattered
among the seven hills like broken
china in the sun.
