ORGANISERS of the Town and Gown gig have promised to make the event a lasting experience in the minds of sports men and women, supporters and fun seekers who will attend Obafemi Awolowo University for the NUGA Games.
Several artistes have been penciled to perform at the concert. They include Alhaji Kollington Ayinla, Queen Salawa Abeni, Edris Abdulkarim, Lord of Ajasa, Igi Nla, Kanja, Faycol, King Wadada, and Omoluabi and others.
“Our major preoccupation now is the task of working on the long list of artistes that have shown interest. Aside from that, we are also working assiduously to ensure that no interest is left un-catered for. It is sure that Gbenga Adeyinka the 1st, an honorary NUGA medalist, will lead the anchor team. Hafiz Oyetoro (Saka), OAU NUGA ambassador and other MCs will also grace the show,” the event’s spokesman, Bayo Bankole, aka Boy Alinco, said.
Town & Gown Gigs is the sandwich premium musical show that will serve as a buffer, providing social atmosphere around the 2013 NUGA Games. The event will hold at the open arena of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, State of Osun. It will parade state-of-the-art technical equipment such as hydraulic twin-mobile stage, array of creative lighting, pyro effects with ground supports to hoist colours, including LED screens to flank the stage to cushion the serenity and rhythmic echoes from 120,000 watts of sound.
Bankole said, “and to cap it all, a range of food and assorted drinks created by corporate sponsors will wet the appetite of fun seekers. This is an opportunity for brands to cash-in on this memorable event.”
