The much awaited Globacom’s youth engagement programme, Rock ‘n’ Rule concert, kicked off yesterday, Saturday, January 29 in Enugu.
A cast of top rated music and entertainment stars have been lined up by Globacom to perform at the concerts in Enugu and nine other cities across Nigeria. A beauty pageant to pick Mr and Miss Rock ‘n’ Rule in each of the cities will also be held during the concert.
The concert has already been generating excitement among the youths in the Coal City who are the primary target of the ’funtainment’ package. The Mr. & Miss Rock n Rule contest in particular has generated an unprecedented interest among youths who registered and trooped out for the screening exercise.
Ten pretty, bold and sassy ladies and 10 confident young men have been selected among the thousands of youths who showed interest in the pageant. The winner in each category takes home the sum of N250,000 while the runners-up will receive N150,000 each. The second runners-up will get the sum of N100,000 each.
Artistes on tour with Globacom on the project include Wande Coal, Chocolate City Boys (MI, Jesse Jagz, Ice Prince), J Martins, Freewindz, Weird MC, Flavour, Terry G, Dr Sid, Chidynma, Pelagie from Benin Republic and Glo Naija Sings winner, Casey Edema. DJ Jimmy Jatt will also be there while the show will be anchored by Basket Mouth, Okey Bakassi and Gbenga Adeyinka.
