It was an enjoyable afternoon on Sunday November 17, 2019 at Kona Recreation Hub as 18 exciting young poets battled it out at the Semi-Final of the ongoing War Of Words Season 8 (Slam Poetry Competition).
The 18 poets were paired in twos (to Face Off with each other) and perform only one poem on the theme – The Violence of Silence. The pairing meant it was direct elimination for the losing poet(s).
Nine poets qualified from the Face Off Round, while one was saved by the judges. These Poets are: Matthew Otor, Fragile Dogubo, Marvel, Albert Okuti, Pariolodo, Tiwistar, Oludasa, KC Pesh, Cephas and Titi Matthew (saved by the Judges).
These are the pictures from the event.
