The Grahamstown National Arts Festival brought the crowd to their feet as they sang Zulu, Xhosa and Sotho songs to unite. Iimbongi praising different poets and speakers to calm them down and give them strength to speak in front of crowds.
Disang Moduledi’s poem was awesome. He got cameras in his face as he went to take a seat. He is fantastic, wow! People whispered amongst themselves. A poet that needs to be known and that will get South Africa on to the best poetry chart.
With poems one after the other, Xoliswa Tom declared Wordfest open.
