The poetry he says is inspired by the long history of Griotry in African Literature and Orature as an informative medium. He likens himself to possessing the strength, jungle-pride, enduring spirit and tenacity of the lion, partly so because he hails from the Ngoni-Chewa traditions of Eastern Zambia where some native clans hold fast to the lion as a totem of ancestral significance and royal divinity.| | | Next → | Single Page
