Well known on the streets of Wellington for his all-night beatbox-busking, King Homeboy gives a presentation and workshop about his life as a beatboxer and street performer.

King Homeboy (Te Ariki Paul Toki) is a six-time world beat boxing champion and has travelled the world and performed with prominent bands such as Fat Freddy's Drop, The Black Seeds, Shapeshifter and Olmecha Supreme.

The Cuba Mall regular has appeared at World Beatbox Championships in Berlin, and notably smashed the world record for the longest continuous beatbox in 2009, at 34 hours 10 hours longer than the previous record.
