OyOsmusic joined Jibilika Festival in commemorating its 10th anniversary on the 18th and 19th of August at Joina City Mall and Theatre in the Park- Harare Gardens, respectively.

Young people thronged the event celebrating art through dance, music, beat boxing and spoken word. Among the guest performers was talented and seasoned beat boxer, Pro Beats who put up a captivating quality performance on the second day. Day two also saw eighty talented hip hop dancers competing for the crown, revealing the magnitude of young talent existing in the country. Jibilika Festival has over the years provided a platform for the youth to express and expose their talent through various arts modes particularly dance.

This year however was unique, as Jibilika partnered OyOsmusic which shares a similar vision. Both brands thrive on the recognition of local talent. OyOsmusic has made significant strides towards the recognition and distribution of local music and has been instrumental in copyright representation and curbing piracy. It has played a significant role in curbing piracy by discouraging people from pirating music and encouraging them to adopt a culture of supporting their own artists by actually buying their music through their platform. It is because of this passion for the growth of the local arts industry that they decided to partner the Jibilika Festival this year.

The ultimate winner of the Jibilika Battle Rivalskool dance competitions, Panashe Gabi won a trip to Paris, France  scheduled for 10 December 2017, which will be an opportunity for global exposure and networking.
