Uniport Hosts First Edition of Glo Campus Storm


In line with its effort of spreading joy to the greatest number of people, the next generation network, Globacom, has firmed up plans to provide endless fun at the nation’s tertiary institutions as another season of its Glo Campus Storm concert begins today.

In a statement yesterday, Globacom announced that several tertiary institutions across the country would be treated to world-class entertainment and fun in the next 24 weeks “as 17 of the country’s best artistes, including Wizkid, Flavour, Timaya, MI, Omawumi, Reekado Banks, Korede Bello, Di’ja, Runtown, Basketmouth, Bovi and Gordons, have been contracted to entertain our teeming youths in the nation’s tertiary institutions.”

The company stated: “We have the pleasure of announcing that our rave youth concert, the Glo Campus Storm, will be hitting tertiary institutions across the country beginning with the University of Port Harcourt, which will host the maiden edition of the 24-week show on Friday, October 14.”

The statement said apart from providing entertainment, Glo will also “be using the Glo Campus Storm to reward and empower Nigerian students as 240 of them, 10 from each institution, comprising five males and five females, will become campus ambassadors of the Glo brand across the 24 campuses.”

Globacom declared that “The 10 winners in each campus will receive up to N100,000 each, with all the 240 winners vying for the ‘Glo Data Dude’ and ‘Glo Data Diva’ coveted crowns at the grand finale. The two top winners in each category (male and female) will each have the chance of winning N1 million in scholarships in addition to being signed on as Glo Brand Ambassadors. They will also get Special Invitations to all Globacom organised events and shows such as the Glo-CAF Awards, Glo Laffta Fest and Glo Slide ‘n’ Bounce concerts”, the statement stressed.

For the University of Port Harcourt edition of the show, Globacom listed the artistes that will perform to include the South-south don of entertainment, Timaya, ace rapper, Mr. Incredible, MI, and Nigeria’s youngest hip hop sensation, Runtown. Popular comedian, Gordons, will anchor the show, while the most prolific female Disc Jockey, DJ Lambo, will take charge of the jukebox. The show will be held at the University of Port Harcourt’s  Gymnasium starting from 4p.m.
