And the winner of the freestyle rap competition is Julius Mheya, stage name Libra Miambatano.
Although the competition was stiff, Libra‘s lyrical style checked all the boxes for our judges! Libra is awarded a fat prize of 1M TSH, publication with VOM and mentoring from our team!
Libra is from Arusha and learned to rap at age 12 by listening to artist such as Professor Jay, Fid Q and others. His rap is an emotional stabilizer as it makes him happy and helps him to get closer to a childhood dream.
Congratulations to Libra and all participants, this competition was so much fun and all your entries were remarkable!
