An interview with Godswill Ezeonyeka of the Christ A Poet Team.
CEDARS: Good morning Sir Godswill, how are you enjoying Ilorin today?
Godswill: I am very well. Ilorin is cool. I Thank God for a safe trip.
CEDARS: Awesome! I know a lot is currently going on as I can see on the background… But I promise to be quick on this one.
Godswill: Smiles… No problems… Tape rolling.
CEDARS: OK! So, let’s start with you: As an affiliate of CEDARS Nigeria, you already have some social presence and work credits that am aware of, but for most folks, this might be a first contact.
Godswill: Well for starters, My name is Godswill Ezeonyeka and I am the Chief Editor of the Christ A Poet Team.
I love art. I love beauty wherever I see it. I believe we all have a voice not just in what we say but how we say it.
CEDARS: Interesting… You mentioned being Chief Editor of the Christ A Poet Team. Tell us about Christ A Poet. An attempt towards impactful word use?
Godswill: Christ A Poet is a platform that celebrates and pushes for sound and edifying literary content that especially point all men to Jesus and all the joys associated in Him. So yeah, words are what we use to impact our world.
CEDARS: Interesting… So, PENSPEAK; last year was “The Definition”, it won the CEDARS Award for the “Event of the Year”. The year before was… What’s the central theme this year?
Godswill: PENSPEAK is this June, that’s why we are here… Smiles… The Christapoet’ annual event has HARVEST as the theme this year.
Godswill: That’s right! God has commissioned us to declare that “The Harvest is Here”.
CEDARS: How’s it going to be?
Godswill: This year’s event will be a tour through 3 venues with three campuses in mind Unilorin, UNN and UNEC.
CEDARS: So what’s the tour schedule like?
Godswill: We will be starting out here in Ilorin tomorrow the 8th at this venue: TLCC off pipeline road. Then we move to UNEC (University of Nigeria Enugu Campus) on Sunday 10th of June, that would be at FBA Hall 1 and finally my Alma mater, UNN (University Of Nigeria Nsukka) on Thursday the 14th at New Arts Theather.
All events have a duration between 5pm and 8pm and they are all FREE
CEDARS: what are the audience to expect?
Godswill: More than ever, everyone who can will be doing themselves a great favour to be at any and all of these events. The theme characteristic of Jesus’ most profound message.
The Harvest is here, it is ready for the picking and all God needs are labourers. Unlike what the world would have us believe, the church of God is growing strong and the harvest now has never been better.
So we believe after this event that there will be an unusual release of men of God that will harvest of the increase God has already given.
CEDARS: Awesome work. Worthy of Note that we have some CEDARS Acts signed with the Christ A Poet Team, names like ucTRUTH, Doebi, The Niel Quchi, Egwu Nnanna, Ama Udofa…
Godswill: Yeah… Great guys. Smiles…
CEDARS: Good to see Ruth Mahogany is already here… We would be in Enugu too and would love to see everyone in the region grace this event.
Godswill: Smiles… Sure! The word is in motion.
CEDARS: Is this going to be your first tour as group and finally, what is the expectation for the future?
Godswill: Yes it is our first tour and we are not going to stop. Like you know #WeWontEndHere Laughs…
CEDARS: Inspiring. Wow! It’s going to be a tough week and we wish you all a sensational experience and we hope the audience has a good drip of inspiration on this HARVEST TOUR.
Godswill: We believe so too. Our website www.christapoet.com is packed with a lot already and our social accounts @christapoet is always open for following.
CEDARS: We’re grateful for your time Mr Godswill Ezeonyeka, Chief Editor Christ A Poet Team.
Godswill: Thank you for yours too. Shake hands…
CEDARS: So tape can stop rolling now baa? I am tired of being formal…
