THE Believers Boppers Battle (B3) Dance semi-finals competition took Bulawayo by storm on Sunday with more than 1 000 gospel hip-hop and kwaito dance enthusiasts thronging the Word of Life church.
Nine hip-hop dance groups and five kwaito dance groups battled it out in the fourth edition of the Believers Boppers Battle (B3) Dance competition.
Participating hip-hop groups included the Dream Team, Megatrones, Extremes, Salt and Light, Funky stars, TNT, Hurricanes, GOM and Explosion, kwaito groups were Sky Shakers, The Ones, Revolution, Top Generation and Jadgers.
The judges were former Extremes choreographer Dumisani Dewa, Maradona from Youth For Christ and former Rolex dancer Ceryl.
Clad in various attires such as masks, tunics, work suits, cardigans and denims, the groups took to the stage showcasing their synchronised dance routines that kept one glued to the stage.
Individuals from all the dance crews were also chosen to battle for the title B3 best dancer 2014. Witness Nyoni (20) from Sky Shakers walked away with the title and prize money.
The final competition which will be held on a later date to be advised in June, will see the winning group walking away with prize money and a trophy.
The event which was staged after a youth conference dubbed “World Shakers and History makers” saw 85 young people receiving salvation in a prayer led by Pastor Busisa Moyo of Word of Life church. Organiser of the event, Marshall Malaba said, the event was successful and promised people that the final one would be bigger and better.
“The whole idea for this competition is to affect the community for Jesus Christ, therefore I believe this competition was successful in doing that hence 85 people received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. I believe the final event in June will pull larger crowds.”
