After winning the second edition of the WRITE FOR LOVE" contest, Katoonspeaks met with the greatest writer of all time(G.W.A.T), An author of many best selling books and articles, including "MECHANICS OF YENOGOA". A big name in the creative/writing industry. It was a priviledge for Katoonspeaks to finally meet this amazing human in the person of Mr Michael Afenfia.

T.O: - In the wee hours of the day and the roo of the night In the glee of merry and in the gloom of misery I have hampered a mystery in the creeks of my heart Of the class behind glass And of what lurks beneath the keys Guarded with locks of the dragons jaws…..
