Samuel Akanimoh is a creative writer, lover of poetry and music, and a creative designer by practice. He first discovered his passion and interest for writing in his senior year of secondary school and has ever since indulged in reading books centered around poetry and fiction, writing, and performing poetry.
His writing is mostly brief, poignant, relatable, and direct, embedded in themes about life, self-awareness, growth, relationships, love and pain, societal pressures, faith, etc. His writing aims to communicate a clear and relatable message, even to people that ideally do not enjoy poetry. He aims to provoke readers to break from negative social conditioning and stereotypes, to live their best life, not the life they were told was best for them. He writes to encourage readers to love themselves, then love others.
Currently, you can find Samuel encouraging future young adults to make the most of the moment at Teen Talk programmes hosted by the Abuja Literary Society.
