We Made It To HIFA

In a beautiful twist of events, we managed to make it to this year’s HIFA! We decided to bring you a bit of what happened during our time there. We were at Harare Gardens for the poetry session with esteemed Zim poet ChirikureChirikure as well as Erick Lindner among others who kept us inspired for the hour they performed.

The vibe of the whole affair was chilled and optimist, everyone looked their best (much to our delight!). During the whole afternoon stalls were set up by Zimbabwean creatives from jewellers to artists, including one that sought to raise funds for women in prisons by selling their arts and crafts. Check out our pics if you couldn’t make it this year, and if you did, we would love to hear about the events you attended and what inspired you.

HIFA ends this Sunday, so until then Switch On Zimbabwe! πŸ™‚

A Scribe Called Tswa

“With a Pen
A child will come to understand the meaning in their name
A tribe will retrace their pathway to the beginning of their totem
A people might preserve their culture for tomorrow’s generations
A simple prophecy in graffiti on a city wall some rock paintings”

Besides having a cool name to go by, Tswarelo Mothobe, A.K.A. A Scribe Called Tswa, has so much talent he has been recognised by sites as big as World hip Hop Market as an artist worth looking out for. We hope his poetry inspires you as much as it moves us!

We first found them on twitter and could not resist sending them a message to let them know how much their work is appreciated, you should do the same https://twitter.com/ICAfrican
