Tope Ogundare, doctor and poet, or do we simply say Topazo? Author of the Z Channel, we met on those days at Naija Stories and he has continued to grow in many ways. Not one of the aggressive ones, his works speak with power as he lets his heart out on many issues… But wait, this is not meant to be a blurb, abi? 🙂
It is another birthday. Actually, the birthday was yesterday. Like many others, I celebrate this spirited Nigerian who is working against time, nature and a million other forces to make all things right for himself and all those around him.
Did I mention that the manuscript for his poetry collection, The Book of Pain is lurking somewhere about to hit the shelves? Ooops! He writes good short stories and poems. You really should watch out for his book.
Happy Birthday Topazo. May the heavens be kind.
