By Lolade Sowoolu
Many thronged the UniLag Indoor Sports hall last Sunday evening hoping to catch the best of B-boying action. And they sure weren’t disappointed as they got more than they bargained for.

Good Hip Hop music mixed with raw B-boying took centre stage the whole evening as ten dance crews wrestled to be crowned the Battle of The year (BOTY) Nigeria ‘09 winners.

BOTY ‘09 competition began with regional finals in Benin, Jos and Lagos several weeks ago. Nine groups made it through and joined last year’s winners ‘All Stars’, to slug it out for this year’s national finals. After the Show rounds, four made it to the semi final knock out stage.

Half way gone, it was time for some music. The Kalifate, Kel, Ill Bliss and Dat Nig.g.a raw strutted their stuffs on stage while Djs Nutty Steve and Stramborella held it down for the Djs.

One Unit beat Omph, Dance Reloaded and defending champions All Stars winning the final battle to emerge BOTY Nig ‘09 winners after rigorous competition. Judges at this year’s finals included Osha, B-Elect and international B-boy ‘Just Do It’ from Holland who also gave a jaw dropping performance.

Other Hip Hop heads in attendance included Terry Tha Rapman and Rooftop MCs.
BOTY Nig is organised by House of Royalty and supported by Lipton among others
