Percy Shozi is a South African poet living in Melbourne. He is also a singer-songwriter and pianist. His heart is to use poetry and music to encourage people and help them find hope in the midst of life’s adversities.
His life, work and inspiration straddles two continents. He grew up in the Valley of 1000 Hills, near Durban, South Africa. It is a place that is deeply embedded in his blood, that gave him his culture and that taught him many things. He now lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife and their two daughters.
He has published two motivational poetry books - Wings of an Eagle and I Am Sold.
His third book is a children's book due out in 2020. It focuses on identity. It's about a little girl, who has parents from different races and who is trying to figure out where she fits in this world.
Percy has both published his poetry and performed spoken word poems at events. You can read some of his poems on his blog, Power of Poetry.
