Oppong Clifford Benjamin is a poet who calls himself a proud citizen of the African Continent, he is originally from a village called Prestea in the Western Region of Ghana. Oppong has been writing poetry since age 14 and his work has been noticed by other seasoned and young poets across Africa in countries like South Africa and Nigeria.‘
I first met poetry in 2005 during my junior high school days when Omo Ghana organized a nation-wide poetry and essay competition in which I contested. His poem; This is My Home placed 7th among 300 other young poets. From then onwards, his obsession grew stronger and stronger and he fed it by reading and learning all he could about poetry until he started to capture wrongs in society, African history and culture and happenings in this personal life through poems.
