Sipho Sepamla and Mongane Wally Serote are the two poets who started the black poetry revival in the 1970s in South Africa

Sipho Sepamla and Mongane Wally Serote are the two poets who started the black poetry revival in the 1970s in South Africa. They centered their poetry around life in the townships and expressed the anger and frustration of the urban, educated black, increasingly hemmed in and thwarted by the apartheid state. Such irony is always in danger of souring into bitterness under the impact of the gross injustices of the system, something Sepamla is aware of and tries to fight. In the poem "Nibblings" he expresses hate for lies, bitterness, blacks who hate whites, white liberals, and people who admire him because of his education, but he is basically "in love with mankind.

Sydney Sipho Sepamla spent most of his life in Soweto, the enormous township southwest of Johannesburg. Sepamla has been grouped with poets like Oswald Mtshali and Wally Mongane Serote, the group is often referred to as the ‘poets of the big cities’. These are not Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, but rather the ‘Black’ cities of Soweto, Langa and Kwa Mashu. For a long time, the new city poetry was self-assertive, wrathful and disconcerting. What has distinguished Sepamla from the other poets, however, is that his work is not entirely focused on political themes.
