get to know me
The storytelling poet who lets you choose how the story goes.
I'm a poet who performs through pieces in both English & French. My poetry comes from my own personal experiences, his environment, and music.
I began performing in March 2014 and I'm the 58th Slam Africa King having won the competition in October 2015. I gave a TEDx Talk in April 2018 on the importance and benefits of artistic self-expression.
I've also performed on many occasions including highlights such as:
• The Goethe-Institut’s Cirque de l’Afrique concert.
• The Alliance Française’s Showcase Wednesdays.
In August 2018, I released my first EP, ‘REAL’ - a project exploring the topics of love and relationships.
In October 2019, I released my live performance album, ‘Us’ - based on a real love story.
