Spoken Word Poems ~ A Collection

Rhonda Johnson
In the Yoruba language imo means knowledge and oye means understanding. When two words began or end with a vowel it is customary to contract them into one word just as in the english language the words it and is are contracted to form the word it's. So imo and oye together form the word imoye.

Rhonda Johnson put together a collection of 6 poems which she wrote, performed and named Imoye. These poems are accompanied by music created and played by Mike Bailey.
