Roundhouse Slam 2012

In Uncategorized on August 30, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Yesterday was the much awaited final of the Roundhouse Summer Slam and it definitely lived up to the hype.
14 nervous competitors waited in the green room, eating flap jacks and talking to walls (Ok that might have been just me 😉 ) before storming the stage in what was an epic battle of words.
The atmosphere was electric and the standard was high. There were so many different styles, the room went from near tears to hysterics within minutes. I’m so happy to have been a part of it and proud to say the beautiful Hibaq Osman came away with the title of Roundhouse Summer Champ 2012, along with a nice trophy and £500 cheque.
The event was about so much more than the competition, it was a reminder of the power sharing stories can have and anyone who was lucky enough to be there in person or who watched the live stream online can testify to that!
Here is the winner’s video:
