 Students of  the University of Ibadan were on Friday night treated to an evening of fun and entertainment by National telecoms carrier, Globacom.

One of Globacom's numerous ambassadors, Burna Boy was the evening's main act at the event aptly tagged Kings and Queens Night, held in commemoration of the annual week of Kuti's Hall and Queens' Hall both of which are notable halls of residence in the university.

Burna Boy successfully engaged the students for several minutes with a sudden wave of keen excitement, dishing out tune after tune, while the students sang along with him in wild ecstasy.  In addition, two students of the institution, Bamgbose Akimbola and Adun Fred went home with mouth-watering gifts including two Nokia Lumia phones and recharge cards worth several thousands of Naira through a lucky dip at the concert. 

Another feature of the event was a singing competition during which talented students of the institution mesmerized their colleagues with scintillating tunes originally composed by them. 

However, the climax of the celebration were two pageants in the male and female categories representing the two halls.

Seven contestants participated in each of the categories where they displayed raw talents ranging from karaoke, dancing, drumming and poetry. 

At the end of the contests, Toyosi Adekunle  emerged "Mr Kuti  Hall," while Stella Omuette  was declared winner in the female category becoming "Miss Queens' Hall."

Zonal Business Coordinator for Globacom, West Territory,  Mr Dare Oyewale said that Globacom elected to support this year's celebrations by the two halls of residence to foster enduring unity among students of the institution and also reward their loyalty to Globacom over the years.

He added that the youth segment was very key to the network's operations, hence, the resolve to support their growth as social beings, and future of Nigerian nation.
