MTN UG Hip-Hop Awards is yet to bring another launch of the sixth edition that will be another big thing ever known.
The MTN HIPHOP Awards scheduled to happen on the 28th of May 2022 will come with accomplished hip-hop artists, and will also uplift virgin talent through the MTN Pulse Cypher challenge.
Furthermore, this year’s awards come to enable the hip hop star artists showcase their abilities with Hip Hop battles online and come with a twist and excitement.
To take part in the MTN Pulse Cypher and stand a chance to win the prize money, Pulsers are required to download the MTN Pulse Cypher beat from the MTN Pulse microsite, record a one- minute video of themselves rapping to the beat and then upload the video on Instagram or Twitter and tag MTN with the hashtag #MTNPulseCypher.
It is based on these submissions that judges will select the top 10 contenders who will face-off in the MTN Pulse studio to later inform the choice of the top 5 finalists whose videos will be shared online for voting by the public.
The Hip Hop Awards that are being organized by MTN UG Hip-Hop Awards will be supported and sponsored by MTN Uganda and other big brands such as Mountain Dew, and Magic TV.
In the same spirit of supporting Uganda’s Hip-Hop industry, MTN in 2020 sponsored the first televised rap battles that saw several rappers pitched against each other culminating into the discovery of new talent in the country.
