As part of Ekarikthin 2017 held at National Institute of Technology Nagaland, Nagaland State Beatbox Championship was held in collaboration with Indihut. Top 16 beatboxers in the State went head to head with each other to win the title. Even though it was pouring, fans stayed to witness the local talents and support them.
In the end, there was a intense tie breaker battle, where Otto Yeptho beat Zonimong Imchen to become the Nagaland Beatbox Champion. He received a swissbeatbox hoodie along with cash prizes and certificates sponsored by Pinnacle Skills and Aroma Eatery.
Zonimong Imchen was awarded the title of Vice Champion and the third place was awarded to Athozo Tsukru.
