It has been a long time since I first layed my hands on Hadraawi poems daaba huuwaan, and to see the man in person Wow what a adrenaline rush.
We sat down in a hotel in central hargeisa for coffe, I told him about the story of NTW and the Somali poets,Gavin Porter, Jonathan Holmes, Devinda desilver and Yusuf Mohammed, he was well impressed and wanted to talk more, But I was on thin ice,since one of his childhood friends & poet died Gaariye, so hadraawi came back from addis sabba to pay his dues and came to his burial yesterday. We departed shortly after we exchanged contact info, and he told me he was on his way to the U.K for Somali week, Yusuf will have more info about that. All the best for a bright future,Job Done, i couldnt have done without the support of the new De Gabay team in the Horn loOl
