On Friday night, Thapong Visual Arts Centre hosted an event celebrating the Setswana culture particularly that of a 12-year old boy named Kenneth Warona Tito.

Tito, popularly known by his stage name Kunkuru, is a young poet. The event was graced by Kgosi Tshomi Seboni from Kumakwane who talked about how the occasion was special.

He was delighted to find that the Setswana Cultural event can still pull such a number of people in attendance and he wished that the trend can still go on and never lose its stature along the way. Seboni also recognised Kunkuru's work adding that the young poet was talented at what he does. He said it warms his heart to see that Setswana culture still prevails in the current generation and hopes that it shall continue. Kunkuru is just a young boy following in the footsteps of his parents who just like him are also renowned poetry artists, so being a poetry artist runs in the Tito family.
