Ibrahim Sincere sitting on bench at Duncan Terrace Gardens [James Childs]

In our second episode Sessions meets 22-year-old poet and artist Ibrahim Sincere, known for his descriptive, conceptual and creative poetry, discussing personal experiences and the inequalities and struggles within society.

Ibrahim received mainstream recognition for his Malcolm X inspired 2013 poem By Any Means Necessary which discussed privileges, colourism and the journey and perception of people of colour. Featuring on various websites such the Huffington Post, The Cut and performing at the Southbank Centre, Ibrahim has since taken a short break from poetry to focus on his studies.

Walking through the busy streets of Angel’s Islington, Ibrahim discusses his Somalian and Indian heritage, his interests in art and the legacy he wants to leave behind.
