This poet, proudly Nigerian, a Development Sociologist by training and a Customs Officer by profession, bears the full name; Nicholas Oyarekhua Oshomah. He writes with the pen-name; Nick Adegwe-Oshomah. He is a 1980 graduate of Sociology from the University of Benin Nigeria and also holds a Masters degree in Development Sociology from the University of Port Harcourt, Port Harcourt, Nigeria. He started writing poetry since secondary school days in 1973. He joined the defunct poetry.com website in 1996 and was awarded the Distinguished membership pin and plaque after winning The Editor's Choice award for one of his poetry contribution in 1998. An abridged version of that contribution titled "Hellish Times Are Here" was published in a Nigerian anthology, "Passports To The New World"(Apex Books Ltd., Lagos, 2001). Many of his poems were accepted for publication in the various anthologies of the then International Library of Poetry of the then poetry.com. Some were also accepted to be made into Musical CDs of baroque music but were never done because he couldn't give his consent then. For poetry, his first love is the alliterative verse which is reflected in all his very serious poems dealing with important social and environmental issues and mankind. He also has two manuscript novels(on fiction) currently with publishers.
