Memoirs Of A Black Box: Peter Clarke, Kazez twins, Dynasty, others flex their wordplay skills at event
Amidst the brilliant display of fine visual art work display by Sadiq Williams, rap, spoken word and poetry took centre stage at the exhibition.
Revolving Art Incubator’s Memoirs of A Black Box, a performance and visual arts exhibition by Sadiq Ajibola Williams and Poedio Productions had its finale held on Sunday, August 13, 2017 at the Silverbird galleria, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The concept behind this event as explained by SA Williams is for the African man to tell his story and not continue to live under a colonial mentality – that we can match equally with our counterparts in the developed countries of the world.
This was showcased in the visual paintings by Sadiq Williams which had a lot of rich cultural and historical stories dating back to Africans.
Then the OrdinaryGuys experience lifestyle movement being spearheaded by Hip-Hop OG Peter Clarke was incorporated into the event as a music showcase of fine rap, poetry and spoken word.
Producer Echo was on standby providing live music production, as Peter Clarke opened the stage with some interesting wordplay.
Lawyer and music enthusiast Eva Johnson took her turn to spit some, as did another female named Condela.
Then there was the acapella session that saw some freestyle rap by ThatpoetClem, Dynasty, The Kazez twins, Archangel, Mr Dreel and spoken word by Samurai.
X3M Music’s D-Truce also came through and dropped some really witty bars.
