Sydney Sipho Sepamla spent most of his life in Soweto, the enormous township southwest of Johannesburg. One of these was The Blues is you in me, and the collection ‘The Soweto I Love (1977)’ in which he compares the township with fermenting dough. Sepamla has been grouped with poets like Oswald Mtshali and Wally Mongane Serote, the group is often referred to as the ‘poets of the big cities’. These are not Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, but rather the ‘Black’ cities of Soweto, Langa and Kwa Mashu. For a long time, the new city poetry was self-assertive, wrathful and disconcerting. This collection was banned during apartheid.

Sipho Sepamla and Mongane Wally Serote are the two poets who started the black poetry revival in the 1970s in South Africa. They centered their poetry around life in the townships and expressed the anger and frustration of the urban, educated black, increasingly hemmed in and thwarted by the apartheid state. The Blues Is You in Me came out in the year of the Soweto uprising, and the theme of political protest is prevalent. A poem like "I Remember Sharpeville" is in the mold of the classic protest poem. Dedicated to "our dead heroes," it tells the story of the uprising, describes the anger and the shame at the burial of the victims, and vows to remember their names.

His own writing focuses on fear, tension, and political resistance in township life. Books of poetry include Hurry up to It!

His own writing focuses on fear, tension, and political resistance in township life. Books of poetry include Hurry up to It! (1975), The Blues Is You in Me (1976), described by David Wright as ‘spare, ironic, pungent and deadpan’, and The Soweto I Love (1977), which voices the anger and frustration of black South Africans after the Soweto disturbances of 1976. His novel The Root Is One (1979) chronicles the ruthless politics behind the forcible removal of residents from one township (near Johannesburg) to another
