Amid the Covid-19 battle, art and entertainment is certainly an aspect that cannot be ignored as far as public information or mass sensitization is concerned. A million songs have been crafted out there ever since the battle against the virus took center stage. Locally, artiste have joined creatively in this mission
One Raphael Wangusi, an active member of Voi’s Sanaa moja group, an Award-winning spoken word artist, poet, and rapper, in videos shared online not long ago, dropped a short yet well crafted and deep piece around the Corona, Subject. It is certainly worth listening and sharing, at least as a form of appreciation of this piece of art, if not taking home the message that condemns the deadly virus while at the same time, reassuring, reminding, and cautioning the listeners.
However short, the terse message titled Corona Noma, with the video simply shot and directed by Bullet Shots against the backdrop of a graffiti piece, a piece equally done by Voi artists, … This piece definitely deserves attention.
Wangusi’s, an orphan and the previous winner of the 006 Talanta program has developed considerable affection for the spoken word. His strength is evident in his witty word-play and has equally won hearts regionally with his occasional pieces conveyed in the native Taita accent and language often with both deep and at times comic sense.
Generally, however, this also serves as an attestation to the innumerable local talents that ideally need elevation courtesy of the county’s relevant department as well as the support of the regional audience as a key foundation upon which, these artistes and much more of their kind, shall spring from and soar higher.
