Recommended Posts

This guy didn’t deserve everything that life has showered on him, if there is a hereafter let it be a trouble free one.

Awww, I'm so sorry the hear this. Benjaman Zephaniah wasn't just a poet but an all round good guy. Activist and friend to many causes, funny, gentle, and humble with it. A sad loss and at such a young age.

Saw Look North the other night.  Apparently Zephaniah has been living in rural Spalding for years, which was a surprise.  That allowed Look North to run a piece basically claiming him as one of Lincolnshire's own. 

 

Always found him to be intresting to listen to.

I believe he refused a National Honour (MBE or OBE?) some time ago, stating that he had fought all his life against anything to do with 'Empire'.  I admired his candour and for having the courage of his convictions.  May he rest in peace.
