Omar D’Poet Pens Down A Poem for The Volta DJs

Omar D’Poet Pens Down A Poem for The Volta DJs

Situations changed my mood and stiffened my heart.

I needed a cure for my stiffened heart.
Then I remembered this school of taught which says “music is a great recipe for the heart”
Now I have the clue but where do I find that recipe.

I drove my heart from the north to the south in search of that disc jockey that will soften my stiffened heart.

Tearfully, those I met only blew my head off with their noise;
Now my heart is more stiffened and my head Hmmmmm! it’s also off,rolling on the ground in search of this collection of disc jockeys.

That disc jockey that will have the qualities of a real poet.

A disc jockey with a foresight of the listeners mood and feeling.

A disc jockey that connects the heart to the mind.

It didn’t end in tears as I met these disc jockeys whose handiwork softened my stiffened heart.

Their soft hands melt my hearts with their selections at dawn.
Giving my goals hope with their early morning selections.
Energizing my tired self with their afternoon collection of tunes.
Slowly putting me to sleep with their evening miracles.

Volta DJ’s! God bless your hand for healing my stiffened heart.
Ladies and gentlemen, with a standing ovation let’s welcome Volta DJ’s.

Hennessey and Kush

Seyfame is set to make a release after been off the scene for a while with reasons best known to him. Lovely Seymatics, critics, sceptics and good music lovers should however be on the look out for what’s coming next from the camp of Seyfame. He has always delivered effortlessly and prolifically when he drops it like it’s hot by delivering mental jewels in other words; “Seyfame always makes sense whenever he grabs the m.i.c to make musical statements”. We just can’t wait for Hennessey and Kush.
