#WNSFEST Interview: Mapule Mohulatsi

Mapule Mohulatsi was born and raised in Soweto and attended The National School of the Arts where she majored in Dramatic Arts. She is currently a student of History and African Literature at the University of the Witwatersrand, and can best be described as follows:

Barb Wire. Uhuru. Sex on Black Skin. BushChild. A FatFrog. I am not an Artist, I am a forbidden tantra forest, merely a Dance. I, warmer than the devils tit. Left. Pussy Powerist, diabolically sweetened, valiant lover of bombs and incence, Swahili resides in her hair, a cuckoo nest, Militant warrior the epitome of who’s who in the west, sodomy and incest less, bless!

Here is what this vivacious wordslinger had to say to the WNS about  her upcoming appearance at the 3rd Annual Word N Sound International Youth Poetry + Live Music Festival | Open Mic League Finale taking place on the 30th November 2013:

WNS: What have been the pressures/­challenges of having to perform on he Word N Sound stage each month?
Mapule:
Getting there on time for the list.

WNS: What makes you think you are going to take this slam?
Mapule:
I don’t think I’m going to, I don’t have any reason to think so, I haven’t been what you’d call ‘consistent’. Plus I think NoLife deserves it.

WNS: Who has been your toughest contender all year?
Mapule: 
I’m not competitive at all. (Slamming is the hardest thing I’ve done to myself, having a contender would kill me. I can’t do that)

WNS: What effect has taking part in the slam had on you as a poet?
Mapule:
 I’ve been the most inspired by the amazing poetry that exists. I don’t need Youtube as much for inspiration.

WNS: What would winning the slam mean for you?
Mapule: 
Uhm, probably less slamming.
