The name Globacom has been on the lips of students and other members of Ebonyi State University community , Abakaliki after a wonderful show on their campus last weekend. Students and others who attended the show were full of praises for Globacom, for bringing the concert to their doorsteps at no cost to them.
On Friday, December 2, the Law Faculty auditorium of the school, where the event held began to fill up very early in the evening before the first artiste climbed on stage, and by the time the show came to an end late in the night, the venue was jam packed with an audience, drenched in excitement. It was a truly pleasant evening of unprecedented fun.
Reekado Banks was the first act to perform. He elicited cheers from his teeming fans as he performed his hit tracks including ‘Katapot’, 'Oluwani ni' and ‘Sugar baby’. Next was his Marvin Records label mate, Korede Bello, who appeared on stage in black top and jeans to deliver his popular tunes such as ‘Godwin’ and ‘Mungo Park’. Runtown wrapped up the evening with an exhilarating act, performing vivaciously as he interacted with his fans.
Top comedian, Bovi, was the master of ceremonies.
Apart from the main acts by these top musicians, there were talent displays by students who showcased their singing and dancing skills. There were dancing and singing competitions, comedy, poetry and a beauty pageant.
The beauty pageant produced the best Diva and Dude on campus. It was keenly contested and Nkasiobi Muoneke, a 400 level Medicine and Surgery undergraduate, emerged winner of the coveted “Glo Campus Data Diva” competition while Gabriel Ogbonna Ajah, a 300 level History and International Relations student, emerged Glo Campus Data Dude. Both winners took home N100,000 each, while the runners-up won N50,000 each.
One of the students who spoke at the end of the show, Amarachi Mba, a 300 level Food Science and Technology student, praised Globacom to high heavens. “The Glo Campus Storm is such a great idea. It is only Glo that organizes this kind of concert here in Abakaliki. They really know what we students want,” she beamed enthusiastically.
Benedict Chikaodinaka, a 200 level Geology student who also sang at the concert as an upcoming artiste, said, “I have never been given an opportunity to perform at any show. I never knew I had such great skills until I was asked to perform at the Glo Campus Storm. Glo has helped me discover myself even more and I appreciate them for this”.
Glo Campus Storm has blown through eight campuses this year.
