The captivating September 11 event saw the likes of Rozzette, Kevin Nyaga, CEO, K9 (K-Nine) Archduke Martinez (Martin Mwangi), Rodger (Moses Gitonga), Junglegarl (Agnes Ngaruiya) and Daudi Speaks, compete against each other. The competition also included a group challenge pitting Shingai and Mumbi against Maji Mazuri.
Rodger stood out with his piece, which made a satirical observation at how we use the mobile phone. With a refrain, ‘We are just having dumb conversations on our ‘smart’ phones, he emerged the winner qualifying for the grand slam poetry festival set for December.
In the groups category Maji Mazuri and the duet of Shingai qualified for the grand finale festival that will be held on December 10th and 11th.
Rodger will be joining previous Kenyan slam winners Tess Aura (June slam winner) and Kalamu Ya Mshairi (Kim Chokera) (March slam winner) for the 2016 62nd slam poetry crowning of the slam king/queen.
