AMAKHOSI Cultural Centre was a hive of activity on Saturday as it hosted two well attended shows, Poetic Dreams and Dreams to Fame.
Poets of the day Vodloza, Leah Mlalazi, Mkhanto, Comfort Ndlovu and Mazilankatha and others took to the stage and performed two pieces each.
The event will see outstanding poets being selected into the annual Poetic Dreams Golden Awards scheduled for this December.
Mlamuli Moyo, the organiser of the show was happy about the attendance.
“We are happy the audience is getting better with each and every show and this also gives the performers confidence in their works,” Moyo said.
Comfort Ndlovu from Matopo performed a piece titled Magic.
“This is a great platform for us upcoming poets to showcase our abilities. I thank the organisers for giving us such and hopefully I will make it into the golden awards,” Ndlovu said.
Shortly after Poetic Dreams, Dreams to Fame, a talent search for young and upcoming artistes set the stage on fire.
The show featured performances from Black Models, Revolutions Juniors, Loxion Stones Juniors, Black Dickies and many more.
Most of the performers were under the age of 15, but their talent mesmerised the audience.
Petros Chegodo, marketing officer of Amakhosi Cultural Centre, was impressed by the number of groups that registered for the show.
“The number of competitors is growing every week, the best groups from the competitors will be chosen for the Dreams to Fame Golden Awards slated for this December,” Chegodo said.
