The festival Of Arts (HIFA) in conjunction with the British Council saw the coming of Hakeem Onibudo’s UK based
hip-hop dance crew , who graced the streets of Mbare before the opening of the show to check out and educate
local talent.

The group, made up of five members of different cultures and backgrounds joint by their love and passion for hip-
hop, enjoyed watching the Zimcity Crew perform to cheers of the crowd.

Opening day of HIFA (26th of April) also saw the curtains rise at the Seven Arts Theatre as Hakeem and his crew
put up their first act in the festival, hip-hop as poetry which interprets, story-tells and inspires. It was a full house,
the group, as well as the act ‘Hip-hop Is In Me’, was well received with the crowd participating throughout the show.

The crew had two performances in the week long festival and after their second performance on Wednesday 27th of
April, they still had the time to host a short seminar at the National Ballet Company which was open to the public.
People learnt about hip-hop and also got to feel it through crumping and poping.

The ZimCity team invited Hakeem and his crew to ’The Basement’ where upcoming hip-hop crews battled and shared
their views on hip-hop dance. Unfortunate they had to leave Harare before the festival ended to go back to the UK. However, they did leave people in Mbare and elsewhere united in love, understanding and respect of hip-hop.
HIP-HOP IS IN ME TOO!!
