 Details:

Bavubuka Foundation in conjunction with Heart In Action, Star Image Uganda and No End Entertainment realizes the close relationship between basketball, music, fashion and dance in hip-hop culture. Hence we are introducing an annual hip-hop event called “We Got Skillz” that will bring together these four areas to create a conscience and empowering experience.

The event will include local and international artists, DJs, producers (both audio and visual), athletes, break-dancers, graffiti and spoken word performers. Hip-hop supporters worldwide will be invited to celebrate the growth and development of East African hip-hop culture. The event will take place in Kampala, Uganda over the week of (and coincide with) International AIDS day (December 1st). This event will be multicast live in real time over the Internet through technology, supported and provided by Heart in Action Enterprises.
