Hey guys, I was just wondering about this “domestic-rebel-cum-activist”whose CDs/tapes used to be quite popular in SaLone. I think his name was Roy and he used to just say things about white folks and promoting black culture and stuff.Is there any means of getting more info about this guy? Where he is/was from? Lived? Real name? etc. etc.
Full name: Roy Sawh.
He was a Guyanese Asian living in the UK.
I have not been able to find out whether he is still alive. Internet searches disclose that a namesake of his is involved in the current firefighters’ strikes in London. A son maybe?
I remember those tapes. My college mates would listen to them and gasp in amazement. ‘Where did he say this? IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY? What happened to him? Is he in prison? Is he dead?’
Thanks for that info Bluenose. I just read an article that he was awarded an Honorary degree at London Met in 2006!![url=https://www.londonmet.ac.uk/library/c44354_3.pdf]https://www.londonmet.ac.uk/library/c44354_3.pdf[/url]And i’ve just purchased his book from Amazon.[url=https://www.amazon.co.uk/Where-I-Stand-Roy-Sawh/dp/0950666491/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1288917977&sr=1-1]https://www.amazon.co.uk/Where-I-Stand-Roy-Sawh/dp/0950666491/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1288917977&sr=1-1[/url]
This takes me back man. He had lines! Some stick in my mind clearly.
“my name is Roy, short for Royalty””I don’t discuss politics with English women because by day you’re conservative, at night you’re liberal and nine months later you end up in labour””hey, you know when you say you want a man who’s tall dark and handsome?” ((laughs)) “that’s me”
Yes, as you can tell I listened to them a lot and knew most of it to the word.
Oh Otolo, any idea where/how I can lay hands on that CD? Been hearing a lot of that CD but never listened to it. Its like i’m missing some hot stuff there. PMs are highly welcome!
LOL!!!! I remember word is he now lives in Brisbane Australia.. anyone know if they sell those CDs? I used to have it on cassette back in the day
He is available on Youtube! Just search for [b]Roy Sawh[/b], all his recordings are there! Enjoy.
This Happy from Zambia.
