Bboy Neuz  Wins Break-Fast Jam Championship.

Uganda emerged victorious at the Break-Fast Jam grand finale that was held over the weekend at YMCA in Wandegeya.

Break-Fast Jam is an annual event started in 2011 by members of Breakdance Project Uganda with the aim of putting Uganda on the international hip-hop map and to nurture local talent.

The two-day finale, which started on Saturday, was graced with performances by a variety of artists such as St. Nellysade, Kabaka Cypher, Nilotika Band and Sylvester, who all commended the organizers for contributing to the Ugandan hip-hop scene.

The ‘Seven 2 Smoke’ category, which was highly anticipated, saw several dance crews from Uganda, Kenya and the Democratic Republic of Congo putting their best moves forward to determine which nation would carry the title of Break-Fast Jam Champion 2017.

The one on one finals saw 2016 Break-Fast Jam champion Eric Sama compete with Bogere Allan aka Bboy Neuz, which the latter eventually took home, while Bgirl Jojo AKA Nambalirwa Joana took home the title of Bgirl of the Year 2017.

Filled with uncontrollable excitement after being announced, Bogere said, “I have worked hard over the months for this moment, indeed hard works pays.”

In dance competitions that were hotly contested between Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda, Spotlight Crew took home the dance crew title, and Ndawula Ronald emerged as the dancing king in the kids’ battle.

In an emotional event highlight, the Break-Fast Jam initiative organizers Oscar Kibuuka, Jora MC and Mark Kaweesi paid tribute to Abramz Tekya who is considered the “Godfather of Break dancing” in Uganda for his role in promoting break dancing talent in the country.

“This token of appreciation is something we would like to share with Abramz. He is a brother, a friend and a father to us all. We would like to thank him for his work in trying to promote breaking in Uganda,” Jora MC said.

Abramz Tekya, who founded the Breakdance Project Uganda (BPU) in 2006, noted that break dance has come a very long way in Uganda, something which he thought would not come to be amidst various hurdles.

“I am so grateful for having lived to see this. When I started rapping way back in 1992, I did not think I would make it this far and so I am honored for all these people who have been with me through this incredible journey,” Tekya added.
