5 Reasons To Watch Bantu-Boy Blooming

Following shows like Night Under The Stars (NUTS) and Lyricist's Lounge, multi- disciplinary artist and performer Ashwyn Mberi is back with a show that explores lessons that have shaped his journey.

The musical show, which is infused with poetry and storytelling, explores lessons on love, identity, protest and truth as a seed sown in The House of Stone and grown in The Land of the Brave.

We, at Nalebville, have put together 5 reasons you should not Mberi's concert.

Fierce Man On Stage
Jonathan Solomons (The Namibian) described Ashwyn Mberi as a vivacious performer who tackles profound topics, has charm and a James Earl Jones-like voice. We don't think there is a more vivid and capturing description and Mberi has proven this time and time again with his sold-out shows.

Strong Work Ethic
There's nothing worse than attending a show and constantly identifying errors and mishaps. Mberi's work ethic speaks for itself and he has his professional background in law to thank for that. Apart form his time on stage, the multifaceted performer also explores other mediums of performing art through producing using those ;earning experiences for bigger events.

He Is Not New To This Hosting Thing
As already mentioned, Mberi recently hosted Night Under The Stars, he's also hosted  'One Night with Ashwyn', a feminist-orientated show 'She for Vendetta' and the Afro-Blooming Festival twice.

Multi Award Nominee
Mberi, in 2014, was nominated at the Namibia Film and Theatre Awards for Best Newcomer, and Best Male Actor for his role in 'The Bald Soprano'.

Edutainment
Not only are you enjoying a night of good music and poetry, but you are guaranteed to leave the show with a little more knowledge... education + entertainment = edutainment.

Bantu-Boy Blooming will be showing on 2 August at the Warehouse Threatre.
