Poetry for The Famakinwa Family

Today I had the pleasure of performing at the RAPAR event held to raise awareness for The Famakinwa Family in Manchester.
Abiola Famakinwa, mother of three children, 14, 12 and 6, is a Biomedical Scientist who was sadly widowed when her husband, a renowned journalist in Nigeria – Samuel Oluwasanmi Famakinwa died under mysterious circumstances in the Northern Part of Nigeria.
Although she was six months pregnant at the time she had to leave the country with her children in fear of her own and her children’s lives. Now settled in the UK, the Home Office is refusing to allow them to stay. Please help raise awareness! IMG_4575.JPG
