It was a night of glitter explosion at the main auditorium of the University of Lagos, last Thursday for rising talents and superstars in the Pepsi Music Campus Challenge where three out of the 10 contestants emerged top winners.
The show saw selected regional contestants from various Nigerian tertiary institutions – college of education, university, polytechnic and technical colleges converge in Lagos, to perform in front of top music actors like Wizkid and Tiwa Savage who are Pepsi brand ambassadors.
According to one of the three winners, Obinna Michael, a student of Metallurgy at the Lagos State University, it has been a long journey, having been to several auditions without success. He noted that, “It was a very hard time for me but I resolved to improve upon myself. Each time, I have gotten better and here, I am today, with a golden ticket to the Dream Studios.”
“I have been to over 17 auditions but I was rejected, this is not to say that I have not put in my best. But along the line, something will just happen, but that I am a winner today tells me and other struggling talents that they can really make their dreams come through,” Michael added.
