MEET: Katlego Rammusi

Every once in a while, one meets an artist that speaks to them. An artist whose words unpacks  reality. An artist whose words gives you an opportunity to confront the truth, to say hello to it and to not say goodbye until you are honest about what’s happening. At the Gauteng leg of the South African Provincial Slam, I met Katlego Rammusi.

World, meet Katlego Bontle Rammusi.
