The musician stressed that a well interpreted work can help in the pacification of minds, social disagreements and unity, as well as creates space for reflection for citizens.

The American rapper delivered the message Tuesday at the Anim'art Centre, Cazenga district, Luanda, during a workshop on music, theatre and exchange, included in the programme of the 14th edition of the International Theatre Festival of the Cazenga (Festeca 2019), in partnership with the Embassy of the United States of America (USA).

Baltimore musician and businessman Wordsmith makes hip-hop with a strong motivational message and his mission is to entertain and educate through positive messages, delivering clean, quality, marketable music to the masses.
After earning a sports scholarship to play football at Morgan State University he was, however, transferred to the University of Salisbury which made him shift his focus to entertainment.

After completing his degree in Theatre Arts, Wordsmith has since then combined his love of music and theatre in highly expressive performances, free of offenses or profanity, filled with message-driven content and fun for all ages.

The sixth day of Festeca 2019 is also marked with the exhibition of plays from various groups, such as Monte Sinai,"A Roll Out da Luisa ", Tuabixila and the group CRA of Maputo, Mozambique, with the play "IHAYA".

The event is attended by 24 groups, including Angolans and Brazil, South Africa, Mozambique, Portugal and Cape Verde.
