Jamal / Kid Anansi

“A creative hurricane!” Benjamin Zephaniah.

Jamal (or Kid Anansi, if you’re nasty) is the poetic equivalent of finding out that the drinks machine in your local McDonalds has quietly replaced its Pepsi button with spiced rum. He is confusing, frightening, delicious with ginger beer and lemon, and unhealthy in large doses.

His unique brand of poetry will either make you laugh, cry, bite your knuckles in second-hand embarrassment, or all three. He has featured at poetry nights across London, performed on TV for Sky ArtsLife & Rhymes, has hosted Extra Second London and Spoken Word London, and… *checks notes* apparently, he also makes a mean veggie lasagne.
