Digital Poetry Portfolio

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.

A Woman’s Face

The Conductor Marriage

Of Our Souls

Poltrics 38:8-11

The Easy Password of Failure When Jollof Loves You


The Myth of the JJC

The Assistant Parent

One and OnlyThe Mirror
