The biggest dance experience in Nigeria tagged Battle of the Year Nigeria (BOTY) 2016 returns for the eighth consecutive year on 18 September, 2016 at the Indoor Sports Hall of the University of Lagos.
This year’s edition is coming bigger and better with a 'never before seen' competitive edge to the bargain. On parade at BOTY 2016 will be the very best break dance crews itching to set the BOTY arena on fire with stunning, jaw dropping moves and maneuvers in the quest to win the highly coveted spot to represent Nigeria and Africa at the Battle of the Year World finals in Germany.
The 2016 edition will lead with a side event scheduled for the 17th September with a one on one breathtaking battle session in the following categories of Hip-hop dance which includes B-boying, Popping, Locking and Krump while the main event will hold on the 18, September. Last year, more than 2,500 persons experienced the spectacle which saw three -time champions, Space Unlimited emerging winners again. Interestingly, therein lay the probable highpoint of this year’s event.
According to Jolomi Kendaboh of House of Royalty, organizers of the event, there is a palpable hint at a possible conspiracy among the various participating crews to unseat the champions, Space Unlimited and this has created a heightened and unprecedented excitement among the ever loyal but steadily growing fans yearning for a new champion.
The 2016 edition Battle of the Year Nigeria is organized by House of Royalty with production partnership from Pulse.ng, Ves-Concetto, Cytech World Communication, Nigeria Break-dance Convention, Bboy-Bgirl Nigeria, The Underground Contest, AEC, Rhythm 93.7FM and Silverbird TV, Hip TV, Planet TV, and City 105.1 FM.
