Agba, Feldman, Oroko for November guest writer session
Abuja Writers Forum (AWF) will host Goddy Jedy Agba, Ambassador Guy Feldman and Ausin Oroko at its November 25th edition of Guest Writer Session at Nanet Suites, Central Business District, Abuja. Time is 4pm.
Agba was born on August 20, 1958. Agba was barely 27 when he ascended the throne of his forefathers, and is at present the Paramount Ruler of Obudu Local Government Area of Cross River State. After a career in the public service, farming has also become a major part of him since retirement. His firm, Godilogo Farms, has the largest arable farm in Cross River State, employing over 3000 workers.
Feldman will give a talk on contemporary Israeli literature. He was the Political and Diplomatic Advisor to the Israeli Minister for National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Resources for three years before his recent posting to Nigeria.
Feldman also served in Asmara, Eritrea as Ambassador (2010 – 2013) and before that, as Deputy Chef of Mission in Vienna, Austria and Manila, Philippines. In between, he has held various positions within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Israel. Feldman holds a Bachelor’s degree in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Haifa, and an MBA from Manchester University.
Oroko, popularly known ‘Aush,’ has been in the music scene for quite a while. The amazing guitarist and vocalist signed to THELMA RECORDS sometime ago and released OXYGEN, as his debut single. It describes how life is going to practically be impossible without God, and is musically a fusion of African soft rock and a touch of soul music. Oroko is indeed one of those persons whose vocals is way outside the box and is appreciated by the audience each time he features at the Guest Writer Session.
The Guest Writer Session, which also features a raffle-draw for books, runs from 4-7pm and is open to the public. The Abuja Writer’s Forum also runs a weekly Critique Session and a regular Creative Writing Workshop series.
