Yesterday morning, September 17th 2018, our beloved brother Luka Mwango passed away.
He was such an incredibly talented human being and one of the most conscious lyricist we have ever come across.
Through his unique way of storytelling he shared the most valuable knowledge with outstanding poetic techniques, and wise beyond his young age he has left us with words that heal hearts and souls from deep within through which his legacy will live on forever.
Rest in Poetry dear Luka, forever in our hearts!
