Hashtags: The dumbest, smartest, funniest, deepest things I’ve ever (and never) said about love, politics and everything in between’ is a book written by Zimbabwean born kwapi Vengesayi which was released September 16th and is now available for purchase via Amazon, Amazon Europe, and Amazon Kindle.
Vengesayi playfully titles his book ‘Hashtags: The dumbest, smartest, funniest, deepest things I’ve ever (and never) said about love, politics and everything in between’ as a salute to the infamous hashtagging trend that is synonymous with social media. Offering intelligent, entertaining, heartfelt, and sometimes weird perspectives on a variety of topics, Vengesayi skillfully pens his thoughts and feelings in a style that blends storytelling with freewriting and poetry. Whether it’s love or politics, Bigfoot or gay rights, Vengesayi expresses each opinion, observation, and experience openly and honestly, insuring that this book will not only trigger emotion and passion in those who read it, but inspire sincere moments of reflection and debate as well.
Below,Kwapi answered a few questions l had to get some enlightment on the book and the inspiration behind him writing the book.:
1)ME:WHAT IS THE BOOK ON AND WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE IT?
It’s a book that touches on a variety of different topics, primarily love and relationships, social issues (immigration, gay rights, rape, abortion), and Africa. Its about 50+ write ups – some would call them essays – pretty much an extension of what I’ve down on Facebook through out the years, a compilation of those opinions I shared that often sparked heated debates and conversations.
2)ME:Will you be adding Author to your title?(Creator/Producer :Shades of Black,Talent Scout/Son/Brother/Friend?:)
I hadn’t put much thought into adding that title to my name. I write but don’t consider myself an author within the context of its professional definition. I’ve never been a fan of my other titles—creator, producer etc—but this is a world which requires them unfortunately. I personally think we are all a little bit over everything; just as I believe I’m a little bit of everything and adding those things to my title would just becomes tedious and overwhelming
3)ME: What can readers of your book expect to walk away with?
I think some people will walk away feeling more enlightened on the different subjects it covers, while others will walk away with more questions about their own thoughts, experiences, or opinions. The book is a collection of short stories, and essays meant to not only share an opinion but inspire debate and conversation.
4)ME: ls there a particular audience you are targeting to reach with this book?
Although this book is written in a way that appeals more to the social media users (short stories, hashtag references and such) Its content appeals to any generation. If you have an opinion on love, politics, race, immigration and so on, there is something in there for you regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, religion etc.
