I will explain my views by referring to a range of evidence. This will include some of his performances and poems such as “white comedy“, “touch” and responsible and interviews written about him. I will particularly consider his childhood, performance style, lifestyle, achievements and use of word lyrics. Firstly I would like to tell you about Benjamin Zephaniahs childhood because in the interview by the Observer it tells us that he had an extraordinary childhood due to him being the eldest of eight children and how he runaway with his mother because his father was a bad man and how he went to prison and got expelled from school due to stealing and theft. He says “when my father was turning on my mother, he was also turning on me because I would stick up for my mother while the rest of my brother and sisters would be hiding in the cupboards.” the point I am trying to make here is that after such a harsh and miserable childhood he has still made an amazing and successful career and life.

This is pertaining to his first "girlfriend," Alison Ashworth and it's obvious that this first brush with romantic relationships scarred his young psyche. Lois Tyson, author of Critical Theory Today: A User-Friendly Guide writes that, "the unconscious comes into being when we are very young through the repression, the expunging from consciousness, of these unhappy psychological events" (12).
