Television content producer and clothing line/perfume supplier, Bally WallsÂ Entertainment, has come up with a youth-driven concept dubbed Campus Celebrity HostÂ (CCH) and University of Lagos (UNILAG) has been tipped to host the maiden editionÂ scheduled for Friday, 17 December at the Arts Theatre Auditorium.
According to the CEO, Bally Walls Entertainment, Wale Balogun, a graduate of TheatreÂ Arts from UNILAG, CCH is meant to create a platform for students to meet theirÂ preferred celebrities live on campus, especially those who have cut a niche forÂ themselves in different genres of life and those whose lives have positivelyÂ impacted on the students.
â€œThe idea is to select seven different celebrities with an acceptable and reputableÂ status among students, after which UNILAG students will have the opportunity to voteÂ for the preferred celebrity they wish to host that quarter. The celebrities to beÂ voted for are Terry G, Doris Simeon, Sasha, Ini Edo, DJ Zeez, Pasuma and FunsoÂ Adeolu. One of them will be hosted for the night,â€ he explained, adding thatÂ students will vote via a coupon attached to the flier/hand bill of the event, whichÂ will be detached and submitted to a particular designation for compilation.
â€œThe fulcrum of the programme is not only to celebrate celebrities from differentÂ walks of life, but also to keep the Naija spirit, which is synonymous to courage,Â harmony, perseverance, focus, determination, creativity and doggedness alive onÂ campus,â€ he added.
The choice of UNILAG, he said, is a way of paying back to the school that made him.
