Teni n teni by Yusuf Balogun Gemin

Teni N Teni is a beautiful poetry piece inspired by a young lady—Adetutu Epaz, one of the most beautiful souls he’s ever met. From another angle, one might also say it’s a direct shot at flattery or another unwavering proof of being a poet but it takes a lot of will to stand tall and rise against the muddy waters of life and even take pride in that which makes the society hurl abusive words at someone who wears tribal marks in an era where such is considered  barbaric, demeaning and even degrading.

Adetutu Epaz is so unapologetic about the fact that she was carved  that way at a tender age. So, like an astral dove, she walks gracefully on tender waters. That’s why Teni N Teni is here. Teni N Teni is here because of people like Adetutu. Teni N Teni is here because of the Yoruba culture: the punctures and blows. Click to download
