With just three more rounds till the finals of the Word N Sound open mic poetry league, the competition is certainly heating up.
If you missed last month’s show, here is a quick reminder of your top 5 for this month:
5. Schrodinger’s Cat
4. Masai Dabula
3. Mandi Poefficient
1. Cornelius Jones
So good luck to the 5 of you, lets hope you can keep your spot and a little note to the newcomers, if you thought cracking it into the top 5 was a challenge, just imagine what it takes to stay there.
Now for the finale, which is fast approaching (this is when everyone takes out their diaries to jot down SATURDAY 6 OCTOBER 2012) all that matters are each poet’s points on the Word N Sound Poetry League.
And I must say, with 3 new entries on the league’s top 10, a new number one and number two with only 7 points between them…Saturday’s show is set to be real interesting.
The current standings on league are as follows;
- Mandi 509 points (up 1 spot)
- Cornelius Jones 507 points (up 1 spot)
- No Life 455 points (down 2 spots)
- Mpho 397.5 points
- Ahimza 374 points (new top 10 entry)
- Purple Jupiter 372.5 points
- Masai 366.5 points (up 2 spots)
- Bonga 365 points
- Diema Dika 341 points (new top 10 entry)
- Andrew 335 points (new top 10 entry)
As per Word N Sound tradition, the top 5 on the league at the end of September’s show will do battle at the finale while those who hold spots 6 – 10 will perform a piece on the night.
So…3 shows to go. Who will take this year’s crown of Word N Sound King/Queen of the mic?
