While many of the artists names being featured tomorrow may be familiar to most, this may be your first time being introduced to Christian spoken word poetry! Because this style of art is a new addition to the lineup, we figured we would give you some background information on the featured poet for the day!
If you’re unfamiliar with Ezekiel Azonwu, he is just one the many amazing poets from the P4CM (Passion for Christ Movement) camp that you’ve been missing out on! Most well known for his performances at Rhetoric (the largest spoken word poetry event in Los Angeles) via P4CM, Ezekiel has been a traveling poet via many tours, concert events and conferences for over 7 years. He has also spent his time along with other poets such as Janette..ikz, Chris Webb and more facilitating poetry workshops to aspiring poets.
Ezekiel is known for his theatric and edgy style! He noticeably gives his all in every poem. Often touching on topics that are taboo, in one word Ezekiel can be summed up as “unafraid”. Check out a few samples of his work below:
In addition to poetry, Ezekiel also a hip hop artist!
