University alumni, famed hip hop artists, Joe Flizzow and Sona One joined the cultural extravaganza with their electrifying numbers.
The night came to an end with Palestine’s Jerusalem Stomp winning the Most Exciting Cultural Performance Award, with the Indonesia’s Saman Dance coming at a close second, followed by the Chinese Jing Hong Wu Dance at a third place.
As for the Most Creative Cultural Booth, Iraq triumphed above all the other booths, followed by Indonesia, and the Pakistan booth coming in third.
