Back in the usual venue, the Warehouse Theatre, for the May edition, a hand picked line-up of poets and wordsmiths delivered a Spoken Word show that aimed to promote and celebrate originality last Wednesday evening.
A bit of a step up from the usual, poetry lovers were welcomed with a red carpet and the beating of drums.
After an electric opening by co-MCs Patrick Sam and Nunu ‘Truth’ Namises, each with their own interesting pieces, the ‘Be Original’ Top Score-sponsored show swung into high gear and gave exactly what it promised.
The stage regulars, whom audiences have grown to love, brought their own originality and laid themselves bare for the almost full house.
With his cool baritone voice and effortless charm, Ashwyn Mberi spoke about the demons in his life.
Still sizzling from his performance and Best Video win at this year’s NAMAs, Black Vulcanite’s Mark Mushiva stepped out to a crowd who couldn’t help but show him love and delivered his piece titled ‘The Bastard Children of Cliché’ with his usual cool and calm.
