Nihkee Akka

Nihkee Akka (Finnish for “grumpy b*tch”) is the award-winning feminist poetry alter-ego of Jonna Nummela. Nihkee Akka is the ruling Poetry Slam Champion of Finland 2018, performing in Finnish and English, actively gigging both in Finland and abroad. With a background in stand-up comedy and clowning, Nihkee Akka is a spoken word hybrid pushing the boundaries of poetry through humour and personal politics. Jonna Nummela is also the vice-chair of Helsinki Poetry Connection.
