Glo Prepares Aba Subscribers For Yuletide With Memorable Slide ‘n’ Bounce
Globacom, on Saturday night, prepared the residents of Aba, Abia State, for the forthcoming Yuletide season with a big-bang edition of Nigeria’s tour concert, the Glo Slide ‘n’ Bounce.
For top dignitaries and other fun seekers who trooped out in their thousands to watch the show at the Binez Hotel, Aba, there could have been no better way to herald the Christmas season than the Glo Slide ‘n’ Bounce concert which had an array of the biggest entertainers in the country.
The residents of the city also confirmed that “in Aba, age is not a barrier to fun”, as 78-year -old Chief Silas Nwakandu, was one of the Aba residents who attended the show.
“My presence here tonight is a validation of that statement. As you can see, when the young man who is the MC (Okey Bakassi) announced that he had gifts for people above 50 years, more than 50 people came out. I am 78 years old and I looked round the hall and I saw some of my contemporaries there. Even, you also saw how very well the old people danced”, said Chief Nwakandu.
Parading the likes of Omawumi, MI, Wizkid and Flavour, and with guest appearances by the duo of Nollywood actors, Charles Awurum and Victor Osuagwu, the show offered the crowd a fun-filled evening and kept them dancing and rocking all through the event.
Jennifer Njoku, one of the guests at the show said, “in a long while, Aba had not had so much fun like we are having tonight. And with the number and calibre of artistes Globacom has brought to perform at this show, Aba is being prepared for a fun-filled festive season. Kudos to Globacom”.
Henry Nwabinike, the leader of the Ghetto All Stars Dance Crew, which gave a superlative performance at the show, submitted: “in all the years of my dancing career, I had never performed at a huge platform like the Glo Slide ‘n’ Bounce show. This is a rare opportunity Globacom has given to us and we shall forever be grateful to Glo for this privilege.
For Ihetu Adaobi, a pregnant woman who won the rapping competition, she said, “it will go down in history that the Aba Glo Slide ‘n’ Bounce delivered to us a full package of entertainment. Music is my passion and with the number of stars performing tonight, I can imagine the huge investment Globacom has committed to this show all to delight us in Aba free of charge. I thank Glo for the opportunity to be part of tonight’s fun”.
Among the dignitaries at the show were the deputy Speaker, Abia State House of Assembly, Hon Cosmos Ndukwe; the Senior Special Adviser to the Abia State Governor on Health and former Chief Whip of the State House of Assembly, Hon. Ikechi Nwabeke; two Special Assistants to the governor, Hon John Okiyi Kalu and Hon Bright Chinedu Ikeokwu.
