His works have been published in several National dailies in Nigeria such as Thisday, Guardian and Businessday and other electronic medium. In fact he is a columnist in Businessday.

The third and final on the list judging the Poetry category is…

Chimezie Nwodo (Esq)

Chimezie Ogenna Nwodo was born in the Nigerian Coal City of Enugu. He obtained a Law degree from the University of Nigeria in 2012 and was admitted into the Nigerian Bar the following year. His inquisitive disposition and unyielding thirst and quest for knowledge have led him into questioning some popular ideas and beliefs. He introduces himself first as a thinker, then a writer, a lawyer, a traditionalist and a humanist.

He is proud of his African roots and ardently believes in the preservation of Africa’s core cultural and traditional values.

Asides practicing law, he reads, writes and explores, in his spare time.
