About Given Illustrative Masilela
 
The Author
 
Given has authored and self-published an anthology of poems titled ‘Shifting Paradigms – The Psalms of my Time”. He has since authored two other books, a poetry anthology titled “Pages of an open Soul”, as well as an anthology of articles, which are currently available on soft copy.
 
Through his work, Given aims to challenge and possibly mould the modern views of society at large. His main goal as an author is to encourage society to return to a moral, ethical, and ultimately a Godly way of life. One of the main things which set Given Illustrative Masilela apart as a writer is that he has a firm and unflinching grip on his faith, Christianity. This aspect of his spirituality has been one of the most contributing factors to the impact that his work has made in certain parts of South Africa and slowly begins to seep into international borders.
 
The Performer
 
As a performance poet, Given has grown to reach a number of prestigious platforms such as the Annual SALGA gathering, where he had the privilege of performing before South Africa’s Council of Mayors, which included the presence of Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa. He has also shared his work at Chefs@566 in Pretoria, a restaurant founded by Nelson Mandela’s former Chef, Brett Lads, and the United Nation’s International Mandela Day celebration hosted in Brooklyn, South Africa.
 
"To my President,
Do you still take your showers in water?
Or do you bathe in the pools
Of your country’s stolen riches?"- Given Illustrative
