Toto – as he was known to his friends – was well known for his poetry, music and film criticism and other writings among various youth communities in the art.
TFA gives awards, fellowships, and grants to young artists and writers who demonstrate exceptional flair, promise and talent,talent that is yet to test its full potential.
Its main focus is the art of urban youth, which is least applauded and encouraged in our country. Much of their art is neither classical nor folk, nor national or regional: its form is hybrid, of mixed origins, influenced as much by the local as the international.
