Rapper and producer Sage Poet, real name Wongani Kawonga, is back with his fifth album titled Parable of the Chariot.
Kawonga said the album was partially inspired by Covid restrictions.
“We are locked in the house for fear of the pandemic. This led me to think about so many things that go in the way of oneness,” Sage Poet said.
The album has songs such as ‘Darkness of the Night’, ‘Christopher Columbus’, ‘Aryan Invasion’, ‘Avengers, Compassion’, ‘Journey from Here to Here’, ‘Disharmony’, ‘Wisdom’ and ‘Rishi’.
“Through this album, I am also pointing out something about the cover. From the Vedas. The chariot stands for the human body. The five horses which draw the chariot are the five sense organs. The reins stand for the mind. The charioteer stands for the intellect,” he said.
The 10- track album features artists such as Tadala, Black Isco, Kananji, Phi Ella, Sagonjah, Hopeson, Q Aura, Prime, Tru Fix, Spokesman and poet Chris Msosa.
“I am excited to have this album out and I hope people will enjoy the songs,” he said.
Sage Poet started his music journey in 2004, releasing singles and EPs.
Although Sage Poet started rapping professionally in 2004, he released his debut album as a duet in 2008.
