Written by  Written By Russell CHIMBAYO Feb 14, 2017

Poetry enthusiasts in Blantyre will on Valentines night be treated to romantic recitals by English poets at Kwaharaba Arts Café.

The show has been organized by Spoken Word Poetry Blantyre Movement.

After observing that English poetry is struggling to grow compared to Chichewa poetry, the movement decided to put together the show hoping to revive it.

The Poets that are expected to recite on the night include, Yankho Seunda, Mkango Gango, Fat B and Aisha Itimu.

The event which has been dubbed “Be My Valentine” will also feature acoustic musician Jonah.

Speaking to Capital FM, spokesperson for spoken Word Poetry Blantyre Movement said they  want to get lover’s and singletons to enjoy English poetry and also show them that spoken word is not dead yet.


On Wednesday every week Kwaraba café hosts its open mic sessions where poets meet up and share the spoken word.
