Prolific Ghanaian spoken-word artist Mutombo Da Poet is set to release a new piece “Femur” tomorrow, October 28.
Located within the thigh, the femur is not merely the one bone in that part of the body, it is also the longest and the strongest bone in the human body, extending from the hip to the knee.
Mutombo has been on the poetry scene since 2006. In many respects, he’s a forerunner among contemporary poets from the country. His 2012 debut Photosentences still enjoys favourable reviews, and is a reference point for lyrical dexterity and depth of thought.
