Speaking to Mr Hubert Kofi Anti (ubeatz), Coordinator of the historic event which happens to be one of the events preceding the 2017 Ghana DJ Awards, scheduled to hold within the first quarter of the year, he explained that “We looked at the DJs that actually play with DJ flare and drew them from different areas of the Country.”

“The first section which comes off on Saturday is a curtain raiser for more session in coming weeks ” he added.


In an interview with DJ Wabs, one of the participants, who won the best discovery Ghana DJ awards 2016 on his take on the Cypher he said “I think it’s a great experience being the first ever in Africa….. It’s a pleasure being part of history, Ghana and Africa should watch out for a lot of scratches and Turntables tricks on the Cypher.”
