There was the INFINIX dance challenge where the winner receives a small pillow and umbrella from INFINIX.

THE DANCE

ENGINEERING
They presented one of their break dance routines.
Judge’s Verdict
You did well, I look forward to seeing you grow.

ARTS

They did the contemporary dance that marked their presence as students participating in a dance contests and not a comic show. There was extra effort as they reenacted the contemporary dance while Afefe by Temmie Ovwasa plays in the background.

Judge’s Verdict
This is good, very nice performance, nice storyline. You guys are smart and this is the best performance so far.

SCIENCE
They showed some energetic stepping to a break dance beat and My woman, My everything by Patoranking. Their formation was tight!
Judge’s Verdict
You guys brought this routine from the first week, and it is better than week one’s routine, I can see some additions. Well done.

AGRICULTURE
Decked in vintage shirts, they shook their thang to Ongba lara mi by Oritsefemi. One of the female dancers was really awesome as she dug and moved the thang like she ain’t send nobody. They ended their performance by removing their shirts and backing the audience to show A. G. R. I. C. U. L. T. U. R. E written at the back of their inner tees.
Judge’s Verdict
I noticed a blend of last week dance. You guys are going far and I wish you all the best.

Man of the Year

There was a performance by Unilorin’s sweetheart M’kido who began his performance with the French cover of Mad of You by Runtown before switching to the hit song Gbewudani. The events took a dramatic turn as an “Orubebe” threw a sachet of pure water at him from among the audience. M’kido however handled it with maturity and continued with his performance and ended it with the groundbreaking talk
” I saw you guy, one love, God bless us all…. See Orimi tetela, e dami tetela, Koju t’awon ota mi!” the audience erupted into screams as he says this and leaves the stage. What a man!

CIS
The audience seem uninterested in what they were doing due to the mini uproar surrounding the pure water “Orubebe” thrower. CIS however did their thing as they do it.
Judge’s Verdict
There was lack of consistency and this is visible in other groups as well. I wish you all the best.

SOCIAL AND MANAGEMENT SCIENCE
They came through with week one routine that ended with a standing ovation and gbosa gbosa gbosa from the audience.
Judge’s Verdict
You guys are getting better and better.

Judge’s Verdict
Well done guys, your creativity was noticed bit you need to work on your technique.

CIS

Their energy on stage is infectious as they danced to Manolo. They end their dance by gathering their brown ID cards on the neck of the guy in the middle.
Judge’s Verdict
This is your last dance for the session. I will miss your creativity and teamwork. I like this team. Well done.

SOCIAL AND MANAGEMENT SCIENCE

There was a mini Dj Acemag failure before they began their routine again. Their dance tells the story of students who struggle to go to school and get rejected by the Labour market due to nepotism. It shows how such unemployed person becomes frustrated when house rents, loan, hospital bills and hunger chokes the person and he or she couldn’t meet up with responsibilities and instead takes the cowardly route out. SUICIDE.

Judge’s Verdict 1
I have seen all sorts of dance routine but this is something intellectual and it proves you guys are smart. Congratulations.
Judge’s Verdict 2
Dance is an art and not just for entertainment but education as well, you bring all that.
Social and Management Science students scream and dance.
