Beauty Marked : ABOUT THE ARTHOR

By CANDACE MUMFORD

 

A modern-day griot and a living legend. Anyone who knows Vicki Acquah also affectionately known as Mama Oladeji knows that is a fitting description to the woman we've all come to know and love. Though it's only the tip of a very large iceberg when it comes to describing this multi-talented, multifaceted artist. Vicki Acquah is a Poets/ Artist who encourages everyone she encounters to strive to be the best they can be. Pushing you to push yourself. Encouraging others to bring their very best. In the five years, I've had the pleasure of knowing her, while already being a master at her craft, I've watched her challenge herself. Learning various types of poetry. I've watched her at times being her own worst critique, creating an online group where she invited other Poets and aspiring Poets to share their work and seek to better themselves as burgeoning Poets.

The topics I've seen her work cover throughout the years is like watching a poetic newscast. Women's rights, love, heartbreaks, social commentary in the United States and abroad. Reading this Poets work is like CNN for the poetic soul. Evoking a deeper level of thought to the reader with every word read. It's with great pleasure and anticipation that I look forward to the world coming to know this great artist and human being. I don't say those words lightly. I state it because it's a fact. In this day and time, it's hard to find people that truly support your endeavors. Myself and many others can attest to the dedication Vicki Acquah, to her family and friends whether it's participating in groups, calling in with dedication to the many online shows and being an active and willing participant not just standing on the sidelines. To the many community activism projects, she's either started or stood behind. Reader of this creative compilation of words will be left with a myriad of thoughts of emotions after reading each piece. They'll be left asking themselves such questions as “Did I love enough?” “Have I contributed enough to make this world a better place?” and “How can I do more?”
