2016 Winners: Chiv Culture
Our grand prize winners were Chiv Culture, whose “head-nod” jazz and hip hop rhymes made the audience clap in unison to songs like “Epiphany” and their hit “Cupid.”
“Good deeds, good vibes, good music. We represent chivalry culture,” said Chiv Culture’s lead vocalist, Akinyemi.
Band members include Akinyemi, Brian Marshall, Markis Williams, Kennedy Frederick, and Lucas Kadish.
