ON KUKOGHO IRUESIRI SAMSON'S 'WHAT CAN WORDS DO’ (by Moses Opara)
Words can bother, shape, mold, and make the mind think… It cajoles mindsets, depicting the rhythmical beauty and sounds from the throbs of African poetic culture. It comes with an outstanding style drained from the nipples of African poetry.
Reading it can capture the mind [and transport one] to another realm of grasping the bitter sweet truth of life.
What can words do? It has the magical powers of mending broken souls, an epistle for our hearts. The wisdom I can sniff through that anthology show's that he is coming up with a prolific collection, which will pierce through the inner chambers of any heart.
A liquor of beauty that can wet the mind, just like that of Prof. Remi Raji's anthology ‘Sea Of My Mind’ and all other anthologies my eye balls have glanced through.
Without, much ado, reading Samson's anthology “What Can Words Do?’ is like opening pages of endless words carved in the heart of the writer, designing pictures on naked walls for the world to see and appreciate… the beauty of African literature whose ink can convert a stony heart
Heralding the birth of an anthology framed on gold, a special caliber of words, painted calligraphies of truth that caress the mind to love.
I await the book; I wait to read the contagious mind of a bard, an oasis whose dreams are brought into reality.
My lips are starched, with great anticipation. Until, I see and smell the scents from the sanctuary of his bullets of words.
