MASERU — Mantilatilane Productions has organised a poetry night for working professionals to be held on Wednesday at Maseru Golf Club.
‘Malitšitso Moteane told Xpress People their company had decided to focus on the “not-so-obvious audience”.
“We have a perception here that poetry is for young people but in my experience I have learnt that certain age groups enjoy art yet they are never catered for,” she said.
She said only invited people would attend Wednesday’s event.
“We are looking at inviting between 50 and 100 people,” Moteane said.
She said six aspiring poets covering praise, Sesotho, hip-hop and R’nB, descriptive and spiritual poetry were billed to perform.
“We have six poets — Lyrical Bacteria, Makoae Phooko, Kekeletso Sekhoacha, Nthati Ntšuhi, Mpho Thulo and Kofu Matšaba — who will be bringing forth different aspects of poetry,” Moteane said.
