Students of the University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State were in high spirits as the 2016 tour of campuses tagged ‘Cliqfest” by Nigeria’s fastest growing network, Etisalat Nigeria kicked off with their institution.
It seemed like a dream for Daniel Nfon Bassey, the 100 level student of Bio-Chemistry who went home with Cliqfest’s star prize, a Hyundai i10 car. “I left home this morning and joked with my mum that i will come home with the car, and I can’t believe that it is actually going to come true”.
The students turned up in large numbers for the two-day event in an atmosphere of music and learning and they were entertained by some of Nigeria’s finest music acts such as the ‘ALAGA IBILE’ rapper Reminisce, Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa, Timaya and Nigerian Idol winners 4 & 5, Evelle and K-Peace who performed in a thrilling concert as the students swayed to their beats.
Cliqfest Uyo commenced with a motivational seminar anchored by Life coach, Niyi Adesanya who spoke to the students on the theme: “Activate your Dreams” as he provided them with tips on how to succeed beyond school and position themselves for successful careers. This was followed by a five a side football tournament, dance competitions, rap duels and a concert.
The train is onto the next school. Guess where?
