The Media Hype

The Beverley Nambozo Poetry Award, has, since its inception attracted so much media attention. It is more than I can grapple with. In August 2009, I was also nominated for the Arts Press Association (APA) Awards for revitalizing poetry in the country. Things like this make me realize that I am doing the right thing. And that feels so good. Some of the media links are below, From The Daily Monitor, The New Vision and The Bi-weekly Observer. I have also appeared twice on Record TV and in The Education Times Magazine. Beverley Nambozo Nsengiyunva, from small time poet to media hyped poet activist.


  1. Congrats Bev

    Really happy for you and proud of you

    Thank you for challenging us to get thinking

    Hope you take your school project to my hill soon?

  2. Okay, thanks, and what hill is that? I would love to. So far, I am at GreenHiill, Gayaza High school and Kitante Hill.

  3. The Mwiri Hill, of course Dan, why not? That hill has bred the best of the best.
