About SitawaIgnited
Every last Saturday of the month, I organize a poetry night dubbed SitawaIgnited, which is an evening of poetry, wine and everything in between. Hands up if you were there for the August event which I have to admit was a BLAST!!!

The main guests for the evening where;

1. Chris Lyimo who is a took us through his journey as an alcoholic. It was an interesting and revealing discussion for everyone in the audience. It was good to host someone so open about their life and experience with alcohol and most of all their recovery journey. I remember at some point Chris told us, college interfered with his drinking, it was that serious a matter to him. The discussions got juicy when we read Chapter 6 of his book;My first sexual experience. It was an amazing old school trip, Carnivore and how girls tip toe out of bedrooms in the morning (...and most of girls looked away, I saw you all), studded ears, eye liner yes he did eye liner...you just need to get yourself a copy of that book retailing at 700 only to get the sweetness of what we got.

2. Blackskillz was the guest poet and he did wonders with his deep poetry which was a journey to self discovery.

3. Lele the band, where to start with this band...they sang 911 in Luo, I was a woman in love that evening...below is our rendition of Redemption Song

...there were also loads of things up for grabs; tickets to the Hay Festival, Dann Numba 8 Mwangi's Rebuilding CD and a free Boniface Mwangi's Heal the Nation CD plus glass of wine for everyone in the audience, not forgetting loads of laughter and dancing. See more pictures of the August event here.
