From an early age, Wise’s grandparents instilled in him the wisdom that comes from oral storytelling. In the small village where he grew up, stories were told around a fire every night and were the primary means of transmitting knowledge. Today, as an adult, Wise continues to practice the art of storytelling through hip-hop, contemporary Afro music and slam poetry to inspire and motivate youth of all ages.
