Raised in the dusty and chaotic streets of Mzilikazi, right in the midst of the Okapi lifestyle, a young man with a different vision has emerged and today he shares his vision with the world.
He uses poetry as a motivational tool that challenges and encourages, provokes and prunes. His poetry has a unique style that is inspired by contemporary affairs and the need for society to see opportunities in challenges. The anthology signals the birth of motivational poetry. Through this anthology Njabulo vividly demonstrates his belief that poetry is a language that needs to be guarded fiercely and practised on a daily basis to ensure that it survives for ages. Moyo is not new in poetry circles as he was featured as a performing poet in the Action Youth “Listen to Youth Project 2010” DVD compilation, which was done by Jermaine Ndlovu under the British Councils Global Change Makers. He has participated in the Premier Festival of Intwasa as a performance poet since 2009 under the British Councils Echoes of Young Voices youth group, which promotes the arts and creativity. He was a finalist in the Power in the Voice 2006 High Schools competition where he competed with the young talent of Bulawayo. Moyo's writings have been read in the Sunday News poetry corner, and his passion, knowledge and experience in poetry, leadership and motivation have seen this inspirational young man represent his country in Sweden, Denmark and Lebanon.
