Do you know what it feels to be invaded? We are talking about the fun invasion that takes an entire campus by surprise! It will be sad if you are still trying to connect the dots!
We are talking about the biggest campus rave in Nigeria! Last year, Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), University of Calabar (UNICAL), and other tertiary institutions across the country experienced the invasion and there are still stories to tell nearly a year later.
And from what we hear upandan, the invasion is coming with the sauce, the pepper, the rodo and everything hot you can think about. It’s heading for the University of Benin (UNIBEN) and we have joined the list of people trying to contain our excitement.
What happened in 2018 that got us so hyped? We’ll show you with pictures sef.
For about three to five days in each school, the Pulse Invasion team dished out some of the most intriguing activities on this side of the world. The Sales Village housed fun games, sports and even silly side-attractions that made us laugh.
In OAU, we learnt the subtle act of ‘toasting’ a babe in accented Yoruba language. In another school, we watched two guys attempt to find out how long they could carry their female dance-partners. It was hilarious!
The students also got to chill and listen to some exceptional Nigerian minds speak about life, business, and entrepreneurship at the Pulse Talk Series. Beauty moguls, Tara Fela-Durotoye and Bimpe Onakoya; life and business strategist, Steve Harris; blogger and entrepreneur, Uche Pedro; photographer and entrepreneur, Busola Dakolo; filmmaker and actor, Kunle Afolayan and co-founder Jobberman, Opeyemi Awoyemi, were all speakers during the series. Fancy, right? The students got to learn a lot too. Fancy-smart! Lol!
Did you think we were done? Nope! There is still more.
There was also a celebrity visit! From the mayor of Lagos, Mayorkun; everybody’s favourite singer with the ‘h’ factor, Falz; to the man who made us dance to ‘gala’, literally, Harrysongz, students partied like rock stars.
And we can’t forget the noiseless party. The biggest party in town right in the middle of campus, with some of the country’s best DJs and yet nobody else, could hear a thing! The students loved it and it was very obvious.
Now, a year’s worth of anticipation has us stretching our necks as the Invasion team sets its sights on UNIBEN. On Monday 28th, 2019, the Invasion began and the gist has been flowing! What’s the full gist? Who are the servers of all this pepper? No wahala, we will sate your curiosity over the next few days.
