Who will take the Queen/King of the Mic title?

IMG_20140403_122222
With every Word N Sound Series comes the question who is taking the Queen/King of the Mic title? Last month NoLIFE took the title after his provocative piece about corrective rape earned him a near perfect score.

Poetic Butterfly returned to the WNS stage after close to two years to take the number 2 spot. Pretoria poets turned up the heat, giving Jozi poets a run for their money on home ground. Bella, representing the capital city took 3rd place, while Claudia Mac (sometimes known as Xongani when she’s not so angry) and Bafentse took 4th and 5th places.

With 4 ladies in the hotly contested Word N Sound Open Mic Poetry League Top 5, all we can say is: ‘Who said women don’t slam?’
