Having performed as a wildcard in April, Ronoc took the stage for main act this time around. Strapped with his guitar and sweet vocals, the audience couldn’t help but tap their feet along to the songs.
Singer ChristianaO was one of many talented acts during the night; female rapper Thandi shared her unique delivery and singer/songwriter Neecie Goldalso took to the stage. We also had the pleasure of welcoming comedian Howell James back on stage who also explained where people can follow him – by following him out of the door when he left!!
Stand out performances of the night were by some members of ‘The True Family’ (TTF). First up we had spoken word by Emmanuel Speaksfollowed by Dwayne Edwardswho performed acapella . Last but not least we had the man of the hour, Mr. True (aka Nego True), share some heartfelt poetry; with his sister in the audience, we had the pleasure of seeing him perform his latest piece ‘Letter To My Little Sister’.
King Kash took the stage by storm! The energy was brought up to a whole different level when they jumped on stage rapping with a live band.
As well as our main acts, we had the pleasure of welcoming wildcards to the stage. Spoken word artist, Kirtis Franklyn, joined us by sharing an emotional story that touched everyone in the audience; Jack Arglesalso caught the audience off guard with his hard hitting poetry and we had the pleasure of welcoming an #AllsortzOpenMic regular back on stage, Linah Nambooze.
Closing May’s edition of #AllsortzOpenMic was by spoken word artist Jolade. Leaving us all on a powerful, honest piece ending on an inspirational note of…’The world is yours’.
