11 months agoeSteem3 min read


Tomorrow, we organize the 3rd anniversary edition of Black Swagger Poetry Slam with No theme
We want our artists to speak from their hearts and share their creativity from any dimension.
However, we believe some of the themes we have had this year such as Love, Malaria( Evidence), Women, Environment, etc will feature in tomorrow's event.

Starring in tomorrow's edition of BSPS

This is a duo who can move you from one sit to another with good music.. Their dancehall music defined the 90s and early 2000s. Dancehall fused with njang and highlife.They created a genre that is unbeatable till date.Gambler and Smuggler was every teenagers dream back in the days.They curated the most sensational following and artistic innovation we have seen in Cameroon.
Through their music,you could hear, it is possible even in Bamenda! Am sure with their upcoming reboot of their iconic BOOM BODY, Bamenda is going to see a revival.

Also starring is Leonnette whose beautiful voice leaves echoes of good grassroots music.

At Black Swagger Poetry Slam we make the connection between effecting change positively and arts.
