This weekend, emerging London based spoken word artist MOAK aka Michael Osae Asante Kwatia has released his newest spoken word piece entitled ‘Black Queens‘. His new poem encourages black men to appreciate black women, whilst questioning whether their preference of women from other races is due to taste rather than race.
MOAK uses spoken word as a method to connect with people, and when writing his material, it tends to be about things that he’s going through, issues on his mind, or something that he feels most passionate about, of which he uses to articulate in the language that is spoken word. In his own words, he says that;
“Spoken Word offered me a new language in a sense”
MOAK now writes and performs with the intention of inspiring others. Having received phenomenal feedback & words of encouragement from his performances. His “Trust Your Voice” ethos stems from his mothers focus for him to have a mentality that consisted of strength, focus, self belief, openness, understanding and revolution. He now endeavours to connect more with fans and listeners alike, so he can use his creative flair to impact people’s mentality for the better.
“It goes beyond me having the self belief in my craft but also letting people know that they should trust their instincts, purpose, the signs, ability and ambitions. It’s a journey that’s still a working progress but I would say i’m in a good place growing in tandem with the people i’m trying to build up.”
