Wordsmith Motsamai makes us proud

Although poetry is growing, the market, unfortunately, is not very big in this country.

Sonny Holworthy Motsamai, featured in Sowetan on Friday, has stood the test of time. As his career has flourished, he has travelled to the US, UK and recently to Canada.

Motsamai is a dedicated wordsmith who knows how to entertain. He is a hero of Mzansi. This year he reached his peak in the world poetry awards with 10 nominations from 28000 international poets who wrote in thousands of languages.

Motsamai is the first African to be nominated for this major award. I want to thank him for what he has done for this country. Let's hope he will make us proud in Canada soon. His incredible talent deserves to be heard by all the world.
