Zacham Baiye
Zacham Bayei was born 34 years ago in Ogoja, Cross River State of Nigeria. Shortly after his birth his parents relocated to Lagos State, where he did his elementary education. After that, he proceeded to Command Secondary School Kaduna, and later Kaduna State Polytechnic Zaria, where he did a pre-degree (IJMBE) programme and gained admission into Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, to study Literature- in- English. 

Later he obtained a Post-Graduate Diploma in Intercultural Communication and Conflict Resolution (PGDIC) from the University of Abuja, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE), NTI affiliated to Uthman Dan Fodio University, and a Master’s degree in Literature, University of Abuja.

The poet can be best described as a humanist and Afro-centric artist. Humanist in the sense that he uses the genre of poetry as a combative tool to critique the abnormalities in his society. He strongly believes that man can achieved his full potentials devoid of superstitious beliefs and violence. He sees leadership as a call to humanitarian service to humanity not the other way round. He sees poetry as a social vehicle to reach the people.
