In 2010 I self-released my own poetic Album titled Radio-not. I worked with artist near and far, to mention a few: German writer and amazing performer Norbert Herrmann, Orange Farm based Xman, Stax, Hieroglyphics, Kaffirman, Blaze and Venom. I wanted to can the face of poetry and I believe I have - although some people might not yet see that. Learning a language is like constructing a building. Step by step, as the building blocks are cemented together, it gains height. Similarly, the building blocks of language (grammar, prose, poetry) gradually develop a person’s level of proficiency in it. It is very unfortunate though that poetry is the material, which is not used adequately while raising the structure of language in our schools.
While people were kicking balls and blowing Vuvuzelas we were in studio cooking up this fantastic album. The production is raw because of the name itself it was never intended to be played on radio however I am not upset with radio play the project has received. For the first time this wasn’t a mixtape nor EP like most artists are busily creating but an album and happy that money people have enjoyed it and now you can too online.
Poetry lessons are more lively and engaging than any other lesson of language learning. Poetry-reading lessons can easily lead to poetry writing; reading and singing other’s poems facilitate children in writing their own poems. They love to play with language as soon as they are encouraged. Pray that you enjoy this to a point you would want to experience it live (seeing me on stage performing)
