Social Consciousness through Literature and Rhyme

Young Africans are becoming more involved and innovative in bringing about social consciousness. We meet two artists who tell their stories, educate their counterparts while paying the bills through their crafts.

As a young journalists and author Khulekani Magubane writes novels, poetry and short stories to address social ills and inequality in society. From publishing his first book at the tender age of 15 years, this author of over 18 books has developed full circle and is fast becoming a legend in his own right.

We also meet African Hip Hop artist, songwriter, TV show producer and humanitarian, Lesego Moiloa who goes by the name of “Blaklez”. This talented artist has the global stage at his sight. Societal issues and own experiences inspire his mega rhymes. Blaklez is a true Black Consciousness mindful artist, as you would find in many of his songs he is notorious for his bold ‘Steve Biko With The MIC’ statement while forging forward his own rap revolution.
