Poet and activist, Hussain Manawer recently released his recent work ‘Mamma’s Kitchen’, which challenges the confines of traditional masculinity, often tied with misogyny, by centering the feminine.
Unafraid to express his emotions through his poetry, Hussain truly is a unique artist. Openly challenging cultural stereotypes, Hussain represents a new kind of masculinity: one that embraces closeness with female figures in his life, alongside championing feminism.
Carving out a new genre of socially conscious art for the masses, the ‘Original Mummy’s Boy’ released his debut EP ‘Am I Going Too Deep?’ through Virgin EMI in 2017, to critical praise.
Hussain has supported singer Ellie Goulding at the Royal Albert Hall, iconic Oscar winning actress and singer, Cher, and was requested to curate a one-off poem by London Mayor Sadiq Khan, entitled ‘London’s Legacy’ to celebrate the launch of the first night tube.
Infiltrating the worlds of entertainment, finance and business, to name a few – through his campaign work and poetry, the Ilford based wordsmith is challenging the stigma that exists around the topic of mental health. Most recently, he set a Guinness World Record for the ‘World’s Largest Mental Health Lesson‘ and appeared in the Samaritan’s Brew Monday campaign alongside comedian Ross Noble, Years & Years’ front-man Olly Alexander and BBC’s presenter Yasmin Evans.
With three sold-out London headline shows under his belt, Manawer is now set to perform at London’s iconic Scala in November – promising the audience an emotional experience they will not forget. Hussain’s global reach has seen him share platforms with world-renowned leaders such as Kofi Annan, Meghan Markle and the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau. Special guests going on stage includes, Hattie Gladwell and Shocka.
‘Mamma’s Kitchen’ is the first release from Hussain’s upcoming mixtape, which features collaborations with artists such as Rudimental and Naughty Boy.
