But luckily he decided to stick to his roots: His father was a famous breakdancer in his home country of Macedonia in the 1970s – dance and music are part of his family's tradition. In addition, Ukay is proud two-time winner of the biggest dance event Juste Debout. He won the title of world champion in the House category in 2013 and hip-hop in 2017.
