Soul On Sale

by Nkwazi Nkuzi Mhango

Soul On Sale (SOS) sounds like a rap song though it isn't. It isn't purely a poem but a long- provocative and vigorous song focusing on the history of injustices and those suffering from injustice urging them to take action. It explores colonialism, corruption and neocolonialism Africa faces. It chides victims to self-reinvent so as to change the status quo manned by begging and venal potentates. It seeks to provoke readers to feel empowered and responsible. Thus, stand and change the world's status quo sui generis. It employs an enthralling-flow style in free verse to catch the attention of the reader.

“Nkwazi Mhango’s Souls on Sale offers a mesmerizing song about the absurd trials and tribulations of Africa’s freedom. It is some feat: epic in length, epic in significance. While versed in lyricism, what is achieved here, in the wake of exploding xenophobia in South Africa, is something poignant and timely.”

Joanna Woods, author of From Home and Exile: A Negotiation of Ideas about Home in Malawian Poetry

“This is a piece of beauty. I quite enjoyed reading it with its very peculiar and innovative style. By questioning, demanding, discussing, invoking, supplicating, arguing for, and informing his different stakeholders, the poet brings to issue – with brilliant elegance – different aspects of human political and social life.”

Lilian Lem Atanga, Associate Professor Gender and Discourse Studies, University of Bamenda, Cameroon
