Globacom brand ambassadors, PSquare, Reekado Banks and Di'ja on Wednesday added sublime quality to the 2015 Ivory King and Queen Night organised by students of University of Ibadan to mark the institution's student week.
Africa's number one singing twins PSquare turned the show into a big party with melodious rendition of their popular tracks enthusiastically chorused by the students who jumped, shouted and danced in appreciation.
Most of the 4,000 students who attended the show brought out their camera phones to capture the magical moment during PSquare's electrifying performance.
Seeing the mammoth crowd who gathered at the open space in front of Idia Hall for the show, Peter Okoye of PSquare said, "Wow, we have not performed in any university campus in the last 8 years. It is great to be here. Everybody, let's give Globacom a big round of applause for making it possible for us to entertain you here tonight". The appreciative crowd responded instantaneously with their thunderous applause, with some screaming, "thank you Glo".
Mavin Record star, Di'ja was the first major act to perform at the show. Sporting a black satin with complementary crystal studs, she set the mood for the high octane event with her sonorous voice and stagecraft. She wafted through her hit tracks such as Awww, Amen and Falling For You before inviting her brother on the same music label to join the party. Reekado Banks wasted no time in climbing the stage and they jointly rendered Lukuluku to the delight of the crowd who screamed and sang every line with them.
The anchor of the show, Bash supported by the bearded disc jockey, DJ Xgee, serenaded the students with wisecracks and sundry music that made the evening one that would not be forgotten for a long time by the attendees.
Commenting on the show, the President of the University of Ibadan Students Union , Oladimeji Olateju thanked Globacom for supporting the show and the beauty pageant which he said is designed to give students well rounded education.
He expressed delight that Globacom brought PSquare to a university campus for the first time in eight years, adding that the pageant was different from the others as it was designed to task the creativity and intellect of the contestants rather than their looks.
In the view of the Assistant Hall Warden of Idia Hall, Dr. Monica Odinko, Globacom supported the show because it is a youth centric organization which students love, adding that the company should continue to support the youth to grow up to be responsible citizens.
An overjoyed student who had the chance of a selfie on stage with PSquare, Pamela Ediabo of the Department of Guidance and Counselling said repeatedly, "we love Glo! We love Glo!" as she pranced around displaying the selfie on her phone to appreciative colleagues.
Uwaobasi Ikhanna, a 100 level student of Mathematics Department was crowned Mr Primus while Kehinde Anthony, a 100 level student of Microbiology won the Miss Idia competition and Udemba Blessing, a 200 level student of Agric Extension and Rural Development was crowned Miss Phantabulous at the pageant.
In his welcome remarks, Globacom's National Sales Coordinator, West, Mr. Jide Omoworare explained that the company supported the pageant in continuation of its on going nationwide reward of loyal subscribers through its crowd pulling Slide n Bounce musical show and Laffta Fest comedy shows and its love for the youths.
