Shadow Boxxer throws the gauntlet

By Ishmael Bayoh
He may not be that well known in the music industry in Sierra Leone, but Shadow Boxxer is one of the finest lyricists this country can boast of. He is versatile and stylish in the rap business. He swings his style from side to side while ensuring that he murders every beat.

Poem: Sierra Leone, the beauty of a nation

Green, White and Blue flow in my blood.

Everywhere I go they run through my veins.
The Lion mountains, ever so beautiful engulf me each time I go not wanting to leave.
The smiling kids all over get my brilliant warm smiles in return.
The white lengthy sandy beaches, I linger on for long.
The Sherbro islands draw me close.
The burning humid heat refreshes my root and I cling to it.
