January 13th 2017 is the tenth anniversary of Dike Omejé’s death. I want to celebrate his achievements with friends and family and introduce new readers to his life and his work.
So, a group of his friends are in the process of organising “Articulate -Dike Omejé” A day to celebrate the life of our beatiful friend and amazing poet and performer.
It’s taking place at Contact Theatre on Saturday January 14th between 12 noon and 10pm
We aren’t fully sure what is going to be happening yet, but we do know that we want to Articulate Diké – whatever that means!
We want to do workshops at both his Primary and Secondary schools
We want to talk about his life
Get people to read his poems
Assemble a collection of video, recordings and photos to share
Have a collection of his books on sale
We want to hear the amazing Speakeasy band, a wonderful collective of musicians who Diké performed with regularly (please see a festive performance here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjLXZ1jjil4) and generally remember him.
If you have any recordings or photos or anecdotes about Dike please send them to me at
But most importantly, put january 14th in the diary and lets celebrate and Articulate – Dike Omejé
