JOURNALIST, WRITER AND FILMMAKER MALACHI MUKETE TALKS POLICE BRUTALITY, AND SHARES INCIDENCES POLICE HAVE TRIED TO PLANT DRUGS ON HIM.
Anthony Lyrics is a 27-year-old versatile writer and published poet who by day is a full-time Social Media Officer for a children’s charity. He first started writing poetry in his late teens, but it wasn’t until his friends saw his work and were impressed that he realised his talent. His passion for writing poetry continued to thrive, culminating in hundreds of poems and a handful of short stories ever since.
Although he now works in Social Media, he always dreamt of becoming a Copywriter, writing content for creative marketing campaigns and TV ads. Rather than TV and billboards, his main focus is now on the Digital space – writing content and also involved in marketing campaigns.
We caught up with Anthony to get more insight on what he does, and his advice to upcoming artists like himself:
