On April 28th 2018 the Third FGL Edition went down in Tanzania and uniquely featured HipHop Artists and Graffiti as well as BMX Contest and Roller Blade Show. The program also grabbed local attention after being joined by famous Graffiti Artist, Mejah Mbuya who is also a serving UWABA Leader and HipHop Mogul as well. In addition an amazing crowd of cheerful spectators gave power, energy and love to the contestants.
The FGL started with series of free rap battles and later we spun into BMX Qualifiers which were grouped into Brake and Brakeless and featured a total of 12 BMX Riders. They hard stomped the court and pulled amazing stunts not to be missed.
Well at the end Awadhi won the title for BMX Brake Stunts and Muksin kept his crown by wining street BMX – Brakeless. The final between Muksin and Mohanna was hard and they scored 84.02 and 83.98 respectively, a very slight wining!
