For the first time, the Malta Guinness street
dance internationals were being held in Kenya. So, everything was top
notch including the well built stage for the event. Nothing was left to

Saturday came at last and the bright
sun surely brightened up the faces of both competitors and the crowd at
the Kenyatta International Conference Center (KICC). People from all
walks of life came to witness the battle of the best. Ghanaians,
Nigerians, Tanzanians, Pilipino, Kenyans among others.

crowd’s anticipation was finally doused when singer/hype man DNG, who
was the MC of the day, came on stage. He looked stunning in black

introduced the first act which was done by the selected few from all
the nine competing countries. They warmed the stage with a simple well

on stage, the all stars danced true to their name. Our own Sisko ended
up in fourth place.
