Break-Fast Jam is a Ugandan hiphop archetype whose overall imperative is giving a different dimension to the breaking culture in Africa. Break-Fast Jam sprang up in 2011 to enrich hip-hop practitioners with an abundance of skills, knowledge, inspirations and experiences on a non partisan platform through competitions, workshops, performances and exhibitions.
For four years it has been East Africa’s most outstanding breaking event featuring top breakers from across the region. Currently, with all the rapid increase in acclaim, one of the prospects of the event is transforming into a complete global gathering, housing breakers from all corners of the world.
