They say some are better left unsaid. But For this one, I will something to say. I stand to be correct, but anyone that knows Peter Kagayi Ngobi agree with me that his passion for poetry is something you can never miss about him. He has been on road of writing and performing poetry for past decade and he seems to have just start. This incessant love for poetry saw him his law career to run to classroom and teach Poetry to high school students at Nabisunsa Girls School. As if that was not enough, he took to sharpening his vocal ability to loudest to every poem he write. This journey began while he was at Lantern Meet Foundation where they converge every fortnight to share Poetry. Then stage happen. Writing poems were stitched into poetry productions that many to refer to as recitals and there on stage Kagayi found his calling. He has never left stage since. In 2015, with four of his colleagues, he founded Kitara Nation, poetry outfit working in schools and communities to appreciate poetry. Stage Has Become Part Of Kagayis Life And It Is Sacred Place He Worships Diligently. I ask him about his signature performance of protest Poetry and he leads me on into broader perspective of nature of his performance. He believes protest poetry is yet to find acceptance among poetry lovers since it gives right intonation to subject matter of many of his poems. He told me he practices Law through poetry he writes and performs. He writes about other people wont write about. He writes about things some people want say but wont. On number of occasions, Kagayi has been confronted for writing angry Poetry. If my poetry can make someone then they have get point. Unapologetic poet tells me. This kind of writing is also informed by things going in society that are in danger to people. Through his work, he encourages poets to write their hearts in way they want to rather than giving in to how they will be perceive. In 2016, poet launched his first poetry collection, Headline that Morning and it up with Yellow Pupu in 2018. In same year, he held his first one-man production, Audience Say Amen, adaptation of one of his poems. Production had number of shows held at National Theatre, Germany Cultural Centre and Germany Festival in Berlin in same year. This year, Kagayi returns on stage with another production, For My Negativity. For My Negativity one long poem broken down into seven parts. In this production he examines his role as poet and lawyer in public eye.
