In largely free verse, Nsah Mala reacts to and discusses pertinent political, romantic, religious, cultural, environmental and existential issues. He is essentially a social critic, with a keen eye for a society in which a lot is going the wrong side up. Nsah Mala’s poetry is relatively simple and permeable to the average reader, but equally lends itself to more critical minds in myriad ways. In these poems, the poet is budding, but shows signs of promise for what may turn out to be a potent national poetic voice.
