Wayne Farrugia born on 17 September 1996, He is a Maltese writer, teacher, researcher and librarian.

Early Life

He is the oldest and only son of George and Wendy. He has another sibling, Ilenia. He attended St. Francis School Primary, Birkirkara, and then, he was promoted to St. Albert the Great College, Valletta, after he passed the Junior Lyceum and Common entrance exams.

He is currently studying a Master Degree in Maltese Literature about the Maltese nation’s construction in Oliver Friggieri’s poems.

Writing and Songwriting

Farrugia had been writing poems since his childhood. He went public with his works in 2014, encouraged by numerous composers and other writers. At an early age, his poems were adapted to musical compositions in order to be played and sung in numerous concerts. The poem Dies Natalis, originally written as a Christmas poem, was adapted to a musical composition and was played in a concert held at the Mosta local council.

Farrugia's first attempt in writing lyrical compositions for festivals was in 2015 when he participated in the festival L-Għanja tal-Poplu. However, the song was not promoted to the final stage. Farrugia kept on writing other lyrical compositions. Later he penned “Kemm Nixtieq,” the latter being composed by the famous eighty’s band X-Tend in 2020.
