Ngatia Bryan is a theatrical artist based in Nairobi, Kenya. His performances blend storytelling with poetry in a very unique manner. He goes by the moniker "Ngartia" while performing. This, he insists, contrives the art that lives within him.

Raised in a rural setting, he moved to Nairobi to pursue a degree in Theatre arts and Film Technology at Kenyatta University. He started writing poetry at the age of 11 and has kept at it to the present. He started performing at Slam Africa and he became the first artist to be awarded the Poet’s Poet Award in 2012.


Kaesa Kelvin, 21, is a spoken word and performance poet. His skills are self-taught but his poetry is currently reviewed by fellow poets at “Hisia Zangu Poets Group”. He is a third year Business IT student at Multimedia University and a rugby player for Multimedia Hawks rugby team

His poetry aims to create awareness on social happenings in the best form understood by most, spoken words and storytelling. His works hope to encourage, mentor and educate.

Kaesa has been a featured/guest poet at The Bogof, Words Galore: Cascades and at A word & A Mic, and a regular performer at Eve-of-poetry and Fatuma’s voice.
