"We are very excited to provide our consumers with yet another platform to experience great quality entertainment as they fully express themselves through art. I am looking forward to enjoying some real and raw cyphers from Kenyans," Coca-Cola's Senior Franchise Brand Manager Rodney Nzioka said.

Furthermore, the top 6 freestyle rappers will feature in this year's first Sprite Rap Cypher.

Their video will be aired on the event's big screens and subsequently promoted on viral digital channels.

All you are required to do is to submit a video of '6 bars' on Instagram, campaign with the hashtag #SpriteYourLyrics for a chance to be selected.
