Why i wrote the book African sketches

THE BOOK LAUNCH

Where is the love ?

I want love

I want love...


I want love that will make dead man arise Love that so powerful like like Ezekiel That makes dry bones rise  Love that will survive Love that is unconditional Love that is beyond emotions Love that does not cost a thing
Love that makes me feel like a King Love that does not ask for a damn thing!
Love that loves Love that lasts, With no lust Even when it blasts It won’t rust
Love that does not hold on to the past I want it! I want it even when we argue I still have the burning passion to be with you
Love that gives me life Love so pure like a dove If I were a leper you will be my cure You will be my keeper

I remember...

The first lorry load of cocoa
Cotton
Coffee
Loading our soil
Our hard work in exchange for coins

Butter trade

I remember how we embraced colonialism
We thought you were our brothers

Cleverly you have divided us
We have perfected neocolonialism
Like wine we have got better with time
Mastered the technique

Now through airspace you have taken our people
My people have sold their birth right

They wanna...
Look
feel
dress
Act like you

For the love of art

stanza,
rhyme,
rhythm,
similie
you my sooth my soul with poetry

fabric,
tread,
button
you dress my heart with fashion

soprano,
guitar,
voice...
musical choice
you silence your sorrows

Brush ,
paint,
frame
your fingers and hands  give colour to my world

fiction,
diction,
story ,
novel
like the Nobel peace prize
You come with glory
you  expand my horizon

drama ,
theatre,
play
Like the  Da Lai Lama of Tibet
You are  a movement
you  capture the moment

Waiting for the rain

Charles Mungoshi in his book "Waiting for the rain" alludes to various themes in contemporary African affairs ranging from personal desire to  achieve, self emancipation , cultural independence, colonial freedom and the struggles of family disintegration amongst other themes .The key point being that as human beings we go through phases and processes which take time ,courage and patience .We leave our lives waiting for moments of breakthrough for the moments of break though are seemingly also waiting for those that are patient, resilient and take action towards making their lives and those of others better. Our lives are like the water cycle with water being a critical ingredient for our existence. Likewise we meet challenges that take long to be overcome, we thirst, we are discouraged and hopeless but to those who wait, it surely rains and when it rains it’s up to us to harvest the water. We choose the size of the harvesting container and it’s up to us to see opportunities …

LionheART Galleries - Njabulo Moyo



Njabulo Moyo has been one of the young artists to have made significant mark. Arguably one of the youngest people to have self published a book in the form of motivational poetry, Moyo is an Inspirational Motivator, who has a deep passion for leadership.   
He was raised in the dusty and chaotic streets of Mzilikazi, right in the midst of the Okapi lifestyle,and emerged a young man with a different vision. Today he shares his vision with the world. Coming from a fairly middle class background, his history is filled with challenges, but he does not allow this to hinder his vision. He grew up wanting to have an impact on the lives of people and having influence on those who do not yet know him.   
The young author /speaker, affectionately known amongst his close friends as 'The Inspirational Motivator', has been using poetry as a niche in redefining his motivational aspect. In a statement by Chris Mlalazi, Njabulo Moyo;      '…uses poetry a…
