The Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Owerri, will today (Friday) play host to Glo Campus Storm, a flagship show of Globacom, Nigeria’s biggest corporate sponsor of the entertainment industry.
The show will star artistes such as master rapper, Jude Abaga, popularly called MI, sultry singer, Victoria Kimani, and Nigeria’s Lady of Song of the modern era, Omawumi.
Students of the institution in Nekede, a town close to Imo State capital, Owerri, are already expectant of the awe-inspiring combination of song, dance and comedy of rare quality.
Expressing joy at the arrival of the show on the campus, Samson Onuoha, an ND II undergraduate, said: “We are seriously waiting for the show. Music concerts of this magnitude rarely happen in this school. I’m sure students from other institutions around like FUTO (Federal University of Technology, Owerri) will also attend the show.”
In the same vein, Joy Nkechi Ahanna, a 200-level student of the school, who is looking forward to watching some of her music idols live, noted that this would be the first show of this magnitude to be held on the campus.
Other artistes scheduled to perform at the Nekede event are Omawumi and Victoria Kimani, while one of Nigeria’s foremost comedians, Gordons, will pep up the show as Master of Ceremonies, as DJ XGEE mans the jukebox.
In a statement on Thursday in Lagos, Globacom disclosed that the ongoing Glo Campus Storm is indicative of its great admiration for students and youths of Nigeria.
“We have built a very good relationship with them over time and regularly, we entertain them with the best of Nigerian artistes, knowing their love for music. The Glo Campus Storm concert is an entertainment show designed to reward students nationwide and give them the opportunity of winning mouth-watering prizes and becoming Glo Campus ambassadors,” the company said in a statement.
There will be a pageant tagged the ‘Glo Data Dude’ and ‘Glo Data Diva competition which will produce 10 winners per school who will smile home with up to N100,000 each.
The competition will throw up 240 winners at 10 per school who will become Glo Campus Ambassadors. They will all contest for the 2 Glo Ambassadorial positions which will earn the winners N1 million in scholarship in the male and female categories.
The Glo Campus Ambassadors will receive regular special invitations to attend Glo events like the Glo-CAF Awards, GloLaffta Fest and Glo Slide ‘n’ Bounce concerts.”
