Over the past 3 years Poetic Thursdays and Soweto Theatre have teamed up to bring about what has now been termed Soweto’s biggest poetry platform. The show has thus far extended its stage to some 200 poets annually and plays a very important role in the Soweto creative scene at large. The showcase has seen some international stars and also the best of the budding talent South Africa has to offer and has become a bucket list item for established performers and art lovers alike.
This month’s show features Limpopo born model/activist and performer Gaddafi the poet. Born Boitumelo Mainganya in the late 80s Gaddafi has become one of the most sought after pens in South African poetry.
