Your favorite City of Kisumu will be hosting your finest poets from across East Africa courtesy of Talents Industry at a poetry and spoken word – “Poetic Hour” battle to be held at the city’s most hospitable hotel – Acacia Premier Hotel, this Saturday April 7th from 6.00pm.
The event that started as a weekly Poetic Hour Fridays in Kisumu city to help build and nurture artistic talents has now grown wings to bring on board poetic artists from across the region. Last year, there was also held a poetic hour battle that went down at the Mega City Mall.
Over 40 versatile poetry artists applied to participate in the word battle from across the East African region. This was later narrowed down through a rigorous shortlisting process to 13 fire-cracking word-spitting artists who will go head to head in this battle supreme for a cash award of KShs 100,000 to the overall word genius.
9 Kenyans vs 4 Ugandans; and also 9 males vs 4 females
