Flex proves he has the moves and takes krumping honours in Cape Town

2009-11-12 00:00

DURBAN’S Lunga Calvin Sokhela, better known as Flex, took the ­honours in the krumping category of the hip-hop battle, Da Cape vs Da Rest, sponsored by Sprite, in Cape Town.

He was the only one of the ­KwaZulu-Natal entrants — that ­included beatboxer Drumkit, breakdancer Bizzo and graffiti artist Cade — to walk away with a prize. Each of the six champions won ­R10 000.

The mixture of tension and talent resulted in a highly competitive and entertaining show, hosted by Black Moss and Durban’s Ewok, for the more than 1 500 hip-hop fanatics who attended the event at Club ­Atmospheer in Cape Town.

The final came after a series of highly contested preliminary rounds in Cape Town and Johannesburg to select the finest teams of krumpers, B Boys, beatboxers, MC’s, graffiti artists and DJs.

The winners in the other categories were: Sammy Sparks (MC’ing), DJ Codax (deejaying), Jed (B-Boying), Morgan (beat boxing) and Rasty (graffiti).
