This is a first. Talk about black excellence and being the change you want to see. Award-winning author, Oxford PhD candidate, rapper and activist Sizwe-Mpofu-Walsh, is now host of a new WhatsApp show, the Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh Xperience (#SMWX).
The progressive political analyst launched SA’s first WhatsApp news channel for the 2019 Elections on Sunday, 10 March 2019. And no, it is not a WhatsApp group.
‘So many in SA are tired of the media narrative, no one will change it for us. We have to create new channels that out-think the old, tired establishment. That’s why I’m doing #SMWX this election. No subscription. Nada. Just follow on WhatsApp FREE!,’ posted Mpofu-Walsh.
5000 WhatsApp users have already signed up and the first live stream airs on Tuesday, 12 March 2019 at 17h00. Mpofu-Walsh will discuss the aim of the channel and answer some of your questions.
#SMWX will bring fresh content every week focusing on the intersection of politics and popular culture in SA. It’s about new voices coming to the fore and ensuring that they are heard during this election and beyond.
We truly are the ones we have been waiting for. Watch the video below where Mpofu-Walsh explains why he started #SMWX.
