As per the commitment of the poetry community on the need to bring spoken word and poetry to the main stream entertainments activities in Accra, Rhymesonny and his team are putting together the RETORIKA show at the plush Alisa Hotel, North Ridge, Accra on the 26th of December, 2020 .
RETORIKA (Rhetoric) is the art of persuasion, which along with grammar and logic, is one of the three ancient arts of discourse. It aims to study the capacities of writers or speakers needed to inform, persuade, or motivate particular audiences in specific situations.
This year's event is the second edition and it aims at encouraging poets to 'DO MORE' than just the performance of spoken word within a great space but to commit to excellence, innovation and diversity in the art and it's significance in education, entertainment and information dissemination as a tool for social change. We will explore elements of painting, lingual, drama, dance, opera music and classical jazz as ad-on effects for the enhancement of poetry and spoken word
In all effort, this concert is meant to create a platform to exhibit the very best poetry and spoken word artistes in Ghana including Poetra Asantewa, Apiorkor, Vitus, Nakeeyat (Talented Kidz fame), Jeffery Nortey, Amaze, Rhymesonny and a US based international Spoken Icon Yaw Kyeremateng known as King Yaw.
