Then Dafe came in with the introduction and immediately he was done, I took up the chorus and the rest of the guys backed up. I took the first verse, and then Afeez took the second verse with a rap. It was wonderful am telling you. This was the best moment of my life.
I have never had the chance to make use of my talent and this was the first! Who remembered Faze’s Originality song? Remember how he mentioned all the great artiste Nigeria ever had? I took inspiration from that song and I was able to call out the names of all OBS members in form of a rap. I didn’t know when Mrs Gibson came to the stage to give me a hug and also cheering everybody up. Even thou not all the members of the crowd cheered us up; we knew we killed the song. Another dance performance was called from the audience and they were about 7 corp members which were later trimmed down to 2 people. Expectedly, Rejoice, Alopay’s vice was among the last two people standing. As the girl short, naso she sabi dance. At last, Rejoice lost out to the guy and the both of them was given an airtel gift pack. The judges were being called upon so they could gather their result and tell us the winner. The Miss Orobo result would be announced first by the camp commandant, captain A.B Balal who I didn’t even notice his presence at first. Its 11.40pm and the hall is now getting empty gradually. Am sure some guys don go their hostel go sleep. Seyi and I was busy passing a sheet of paper between us to communicate since there was an hell of noise. She was having a feeling that I love her.
