The Unkut Hip Hop Awards 2019 rewarding ceremony took place at the Homeboyz Radio studios in Kilimani, Nairobi in January 2020, and woah! It was a private affair attended by the winners, a couple of industry players and hosted by the effervescent Ruby (@justrubyv) who is the founder of Unkut Africa!
Stars in attendance were amongst the likes of Vallerie Muthoni, Monski and hip hop veteran Edu Gee, who was also in the building! When asked for his thoughts on the current state of hip hop, the legendary Edu Gee said, “It’s great to be here amongst such raw and raging talent from the 254! The future of Kenyan hip hop is in the room and it’s very much alive and kicking.”
Drinks were in full flow as the winners were treated to endless rounds of Belrose Vodka and Veuve Ambal Gold Chardonnay, courtesy of Le Decanter, importers of French and Italian wines and liquors in Kenya.
The Unkut Hip Hop Awards 2020 will kick off with the cyphers that bring together Kenya’s illest MC’s and lyrical wizards together in the build up to the awarding ceremony. Be on the lookout!
