Dylema is a two time UEA award nominated poet. As a multidisciplinary artist, Dylema combines the art of Spoken Word, Jazz and abstract painting she pulls from her East London environment. Her work touches on areas of race, gender inequality, feminism and other areas of social injustice. As well as her personal experience as a British Nigerian migrant in London to parents from the Igbo tribe, which has effectively shaped Dylema's poetry. She is also lead singer to innovative Spoken Soul Jazz band The Dylema Collective; her poetry has been documented on BBC, BET, TEDx and many more.
Movement is her form of expression. A professional artist trained in over 10 styles & based in London, she is heavily influenced by the art of story telling and individual truths, exploring different textures as she moves with essence. Highly spiritual and connected to her ancestry, she moves with such majique, breadth and power.
Her truth fuels her breath and power. Her power stirs, awakening and healing herself and those who share in these divine moments with her.
