André Hector, aka ‘B-Boy Zulu 1’ grew up in Port Elizabeth’s Northern Areas in a suburb named Gelvandale. He is part of the management team for the Execution Style Hip-Hop Movement which is involved in various community projects.
Since becoming interested in break dancing at the age of nine years, André has dedicated his life to his art. As a young teen, he was inspired by Dennis Haupt, of the Cape Town based, Black Noise Hip-Hop Group.
