AboutNimrod Oscar Bowora

Nimrod Bowora is a 23-year-old poet and curator based in Windhoek, Namibia. He was born in a small village known as Mwami in Zimbabwe but moved to Namibia in 2008. He started writing poetry in 2017 after falling in love with it while attending an open mic event and started writing poems in high school as well as reciting his poems during assembly time. He has been doing spoken word since 2019 when he participated in local open mic events organised by the Goethe Institute which invited him there after seeing his potential and enthusiasm for the art. His style of poetry is mostly inspired by activism and focuses more on social issues from a GBV/Passion killing point of view as well as other social ills, but he also writes on love, lust and depression. Besides poetry, Nimrod is an administrator at King’s College Namibia, social media manager for the Free your Mind Entertainment cc, as well as the project coordinator for Comrades Association, a youth-led organization. He was chosen as 1 of 6 people to be part of the Frankly Speaking poetry group and co-hosts the Frankly Speaking poetry radio show which airs weekly on NBC National FM. He is also currently pursuing his degree in commercial law.
