Not afraid to be angry, Ubiaro lashes out at modern-day racism and asserts his identity as an artist and a young man. Unabashedly political, this debut collection examines race, religion and fame with passion and wit, as well as exploring love, mental health, and the artist’s obsession with creation. This is an electrifying set of poems.
Khariis Ubiaro, born in London in 1998, is a genuine talent – as actor, dancer, singer, poet, and model. His poetry addresses issues of identity, race, youth and music culture, with passion, humour, and integrity.
Oh hell, this poet can dance. He can sing. He has a soul, and he has soul. He can channel energy through language. He can come up with a stunning title for his first group of poems. He’s on his way.Helena Nelson, Sphinx Review
