It was evident through this year’s Basketball Kitaa’s Tournament that fashion and sports in Tanzania are now more enter twined than ever before. Highlighting the style scene in the series were spectators in pieces and treasures inspired by classic and current fashion trends with a sporty edge. The influence of the 1970’s fashion elements was clear in everything from animal prints, neon brights, african vintage prints, lace, wide legged pants and cropped tops.
More than 300 spectators gathered to watch and cheer as teams from various neighbourhoods of Dar compete. “Basketball Kitaa is more than a hang out,” said John Mahundi, one of the founding members of Basketball Kitaa. “It provides youth with a platform where they can showcase their talents to the community and be around like minded people who positively encourage them.”
