Abstract Benna - The first official Poet Laureate for Lambeth

I've been in love with the art of storytelling ever since I could talk. I started to pursue my passion at the Roundhouse where I used the creative environment to hone my craft while performing at various Galas and Chairman’s Dinners. My poetic storytelling ability mixed with rhyme and vivid, soul stirring imagery quickly gained the attention of the corporate world which allows me to continue writing/performing and running workshops for various brands.


My storytelling-through-verse is fuelled by exploration of what it means to be a flawed human and how we can grow together while pushing the cultures that

unite us forward.

There’s so much potential on a blank sheet of paper. Every time I pick up the pen

to delve into that potential my aim is to capture culture and my place in it.


as a Human.

as a Man.

as part of London’s Black Diaspora…

                                                  …in the hopes that every listening ear can then find their place within culture and do their part to push it forward.
