Ingqokelela yemi bongo

by Sithembele Isaac Xhegwana

"What does this all mean to me? As different English genres that I have released through different platforms attest, there has been an element of losing my essence and core of humanity. As a direct result of a multitude of reasons that I have entertained through the above-mentioned platforms, the latter of which I do not have the luxury of time to entertain at the present moment, I found myself on the verge of turning my back to my humanity and African-ness. Like Xhosa traditional necklaces, these poems insnared my being in such scrupulous ways. I am very much happy to present this mix masala pot to you. I am trusting that each and everyone of you will get something of much value."
