Slam is a form of art where poetic texts are declaimed on a background of music or just vocal (acapella). It promotes intellectual and cultural development through exploration and discussion of current societal issues. Recently arrived in the sphere of urban music, it has however established itself rather quickly in the world; many stars of hip hop have converted to slam. Recently, African countries joined the Slam art movement. Several festivals have been created in which many slammers from different countries participated. African slam is programmed on several distinguished music and art festivals and receives awards in Africa as on other continents, both in slam and music categories. Nevertheless there is still a lot to do to develop slam in Africa. It is based on national competitions whose winning teams will join the African Cup in Ndjamena in November 2018.
