The latest scores for the Word N Sound Open Mic Poetry League are finally in. Apologies they took so long but as our dear Queen Mandi would say ‘the stakes are too high’ and we can not afford any more mistakes (neh Mpho).

So we have; 1 new entry, 1 drop out and a wider gap between our No.1 and 2

The current league standings are as follows
10. Purple Jupiter 372.5 points (down 4 spots)
9. KB 404 (new entry)
8. Ahimza 417.75 (down 3 spots)
7. Andrew 420 (up 3 spots)
6. Bonga 439.5 (up 2 spots)

5. Masai 458 (up 2 spots)
4. Mpho 487.5
3. No Life 498.75
2. Conelius Jones 594.5
1. Mandi 600

Before last month there were only 2 points between current no 1 Mandi Poefficient and Mr Conelius Jones. After her title winning performance last month though, there are now 5.5 ponts between the two.

Our reigning Supreme King of the Mic 2011, Masai Dabula, has finally worked his way back into the Top 5. If he stays right there, he’ll secure himself an opportunity to defend that title at the festival on SATURDAY 6 OCTOBER, where the Top 5 at the end of September’s episode will compete for the title of Supreme King/Queen of the Mic 2012.

Now the only question is…who will claim the R1000 that is up for grabs for the best performance of the day this Saturday. Big up to Blackcouch Sofserv for the sponsorship, and if you know The Chairman, then you know that only the best impresses him. So good luck and bring fire.

DON’T FORGET: This Saturday is a bumper edition of the Open Mic so there will be 5 extra spot open to absolutely anyone who wants to step on stage. Doors open at 12pm, get there real early in you plan to get onto the open Mic.

The show will begin at 1pm and features the ever so beautiful Natalia Molebatsi (fresh from her trip to London as part of SA’s official arts delegation), the comic and 2011 Open Mic Finalist Bonga Ndziweni,  and the talented Emmah Rhema Mabye holding it down for Pretoria. R40 gets you in to Emonti Diner on Bree, this Saturday 4 August 2012.
