Biography of Kiyaga Lyttle Cephas
I KIYAGA LYTTLE CEPHAS, I was born on 22nd October 1991 at Mulago Hospital, Kampala, Uganda to Mrs. Nakato Deborah who was a church choir leader and later She achieved her talent to a cheerleader and Sheikh Nsimbi Hamuzah Mbogo who was a businessman while a writer unfortunately never made it even to a national level due to much time that he spent on his busunesss than writting.
I spent my childhood with my mum in lugazi where i went to St. peter primary school lugazi. I love reading and writing. I loved reading and writing since i was seven years by then i was in primary two. This when i was first allowed to open my big brother's illustrated Good News Bible. Keeping him company, deep in the night, while was reading for his exams, I was enthralled by the drawings and paintings therein.I was very eager to know what stories those paintings told.
Then, comics were not considered but ''real'' reading and i remember at St. peter primary school lugazi i learned about stock exchange and The adventures of the Tintin were my first books here i crammed the sweet stories and cities that the tintin was and when i saw my friends with better things than mine, i would tell you those stories to attract your feelings towards reading.
As time went on, i was challenged with strange words but this never stopped me, so here i went to my father to buy me a dictionary. And before internet, Google at our home, i went to an Orphanage school next to our home and there was an encyclopedia where i read about great men like Napoleone Bonaparte, Mossolin and many others but what changed and embarrassed me, I asked myself where were the Uganda presidents AminI Dada and Mutesa and i grew up with an aim of writing about my country and its people with their feelings.
When i joined St. Andrew's Sec Sen Sch Lugazi i read many books and me\poets like William shakespeare, pablo Neruda, E.E Cummings, Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen Crane, Ezra Pound and many others are great contributors towards my Poetry, Reading and Writing feelings.
