WordUp Tape – Azanian Thought

This here is a unique playlist of some good poetry records to help you push through, at least, for another 45 minutes of this world saving, life altering, lock down.

There is no deep reasoning behind this selection; if anything, it reflects the things that currently occupy my mind; Abantu, iAfrica, how we see ourselves, how the world sees us, life in the city affectionately known as a “World Class African city”, Jozi my Jozi, as well as the illusion driving it all, the economy. – Sabelo Soko
