We spoke to Phelisa Sikwata a young poet from Mfuleni. Phelisa fell inlove with writing at the age of 14 and she’s always thought of her writing of being both a gift and curse, reason being a gift is when it comes to her expressing the truth and a curse when it wakes her up ha ha ha, she also feels there is never a good time to write, as when it comes to you that is the best time to write. In 2016 she joined CYPHER (Cape Youth Poetry Hub for Expression and Rhythm) She’s featured on two Cypher productions Ndikhululeni and Imbewu Yesini. In 2017 she was part of the top four of the Cape Youth Poetry Slam which availed the opportunity to go to San Francisco and USA.

Phelisa draws her inspiration from black woman as she wants to share stories of black woman in South Africa. She shared the poem FemeSide which is based on all the violence against woman and children in our country, but she didn’t stop there she ended off with Ready To Love.
