Tumi shared a lengthy post about the film where he reflected on moving to Soweto at the age of 13. He said in part: “I was 13 and was thrown in the middle of SOWETO and told ‘this is your family, love them’. I knew nothing but ‘foreign’ lands but everywhere I went was home because of my mother. She had fed me stories of her home and they all sounded so fantastical, mysterious.”

Stogie also shared the inspiration behind the film. He said in part: “The day I wrote my first rhyme I knew I was one day going to have to tell this story. The story of Central Western Jabavu. The little four roomed home to a mother and father that fought tirelessly to keep their 8 children safe from the untenable horrors of apartheid. It is from this strength that I found the courage to write and develop an epic poem that interweaves their intricate lives.”

I arrived in South Africa when I was 13 and was thrown in the middle of SOWETO and told ‘this is your family, love them’. I knew nothing but ‘foreign’ lands but everywhere I went was home because of my mother. She had fed me stories of her home and they all sounded so fantastical, mysterious. Stories of inconceivable hardship, debilitating poverty, defiant love and impenetrable complexity. The day I wrote my first rhyme I knew I was one day going to have to tell this story. The story of Central Western Jabavu. The little four roomed home to a mother and father that fought tirelessly to keep their 8 children safe from the untenable horrors of apartheid. It is from this strength that I found the courage to write and develop an epic poem that interweaves their intricate lives. Award winning director @tebogomalope directs the accompanying visuals and the music is composed by legendary Roots crew keyboardist @jamespoyser on the 28th of September I premier the show in Reunion Island at @citedesarts_lareunion I hope to share this experience with you if you can make it and if you can’t say a prayer that my grandmother and grandfather may be honored by this performance. 1f44a 1f3fe - Stogie T to debut his biopic in France
