Kehinde Badiru is considered a forerunner of digital poetry in Nigeria. He mediates poetry with digital illustration.
On being asked why he illustrates some of his poems, Kehinde says, “Every poem carries a story and design helps me tell it better. Poetry scares people and I don’t know why. I’m creating a Poetry that everyone can easily fall in love with.”
Here are some of his illustrated poems.
Of Our Souls
The Easy Password of Failure When Jollof Loves You
The Myth of the JJC
The Assistant Parent
One and OnlyThe Mirror
