Music and Poetry Night with WAS LEMUEL

Plett's renowned poet WAS LEMUEL will be reciting a collection of poems over percussions and keys. His offering will have you reflecting deeply on life, spirituality and the pursuit of freedom. His journey towards self-actualization though philosophical ponderings and fearless expressions take the audience along the meandering tracks of life which run across love and loss, suffering and joy.

The show features Garden Route  musicians Anqo Teyise, Rodger Meterlerkamp, Mike Bhayibhile and Spha. 204Tv's Sibongile Tom will be capturing the occasion.

 

ABOUT WAS LEMUEL

Wamkelwe Aviwe Sphelele  Mbangwa – pen name WAS LEMUEL, is a young published  poet and writer born in Matatiele but now resides in Plettenberg Bay. He is the author of  A Lusty Longing for Life Love and Liberty, an anthology.

Despite his popularity as a local poet, most of his supporters are unaware that his name is actually an acronym - hence it is written in all caps. WAS LEMUEL stand for Wamkelwe Aviwe Sphelele, Live Every Moment Under Elohim's Love. To him it is an instruction as well as a reminder that no matter the turmoil he goes through, his spiritual gaze should always be fixed upon the omnipresent love of God.

WAS gets his inspiration from life in general - love, tragedy,  dreams, and his experiences and those shared with him by the people he meets.

He prides himself in being a prolific writer - his debut anthology has more than 70 poems.

He has performed before dignitaries of diverse fields and opened the stage for gospel artists Dumi Mkokstad, Jumbo, Yonela Vuthela and Lord Comforters among others. He has performed accompanied by Dizu Plaatjies of Amampondo fame.

This will be his third show at the Plett Arts Fest.
