A Tributary in Servitude captures the complex struggles of a generation whose words have been silenced, whose rage and search for meaning have been quietened. Divided into six sections that trace the course of Africa’s servitude through a maze of histories, politics, social upheavals, prophesies and personal struggles; the poet deftly weaves metaphorical threads into a tapestry of songs that flow from different tributaries into the sea of universal existence.
The voices of Christopher Okigbo, Okot p’Bitek, and Tchicaya U’Tamsi resonate in the collection as verse after verse is forcefully delivered in a language that bristles with elegance and ebullience.
In A Tributary in Servitude, every line is heavy with promise. This is the sort of poetry that fills the reader with magic, music, and awe.
