Wapi Wapi, are the Orange Beat Ya Street (OBYS) Dance Competition 2013 champions. The winning dance crew was announced by the CEO of integrated telecommunications solutions provider Orange, Mickael Ghossein, during the dance competition’s finale broadcast on NTV Saturday night.

Wapi Wapi walk away with KSh 5 million in prize money, the biggest prize in Kenya’s dance competition history. The crew will also have a chance to participate in an international beat battle in 2014.

The finale had eight finalists: Wapi Wapi and FBI from Nairobi, Dabs and Tsunami from Mombasa, So Sick from Kisumu as well as Sisqo, Kipaji Africa and Radio Active from Thika.

The announcement of the winning crew was the culmination of a 3 month dance competition launched on June 27 this year, broken down into regional legs: Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu and Thika, that resulted in the best making it to the finale via these elimination rounds.

“Apart from developing an experiential property that brought to life the Orange brand to better engage with its youthful customers, this competition also acted as that opportune platform for home grown talent to make a mark on the local dance scene,” says Orange CEO Mickael Ghossein.

Orange Beat Ya Street was the second phase of the company’s ‘Opportunity Changes with Orange’ Internet themed campaign. Kenyan javelin thrower, Julius Yego, personified the first phase of the campaign, demonstrating a great Kenyan story of opportunity enhanced by the Internet.
