... with Reminisce, Dammy Krane, Jaywon and Zeez.

Lagos, Nigeria; 15 November 2014:  A wave of excitement swept through the University of Ilorin on Friday, November 14, 2014,  as the  Coke Studio season 2  campus concert brought all other activity on the  campus to a halt, with galvanic performances from chart- topping  Nigerian artistes,  Reminisce, Dammy Krane, Jaywon and Zeez.

Thousands of students defied the blazing sun to pose for "selfies" beside the double decker Coke Studio bus, and enjoy hit after hit performed live by the A-list music stars.

Brand Manager, Colas, Coca-Cola Nigeria Limited, Olufemi Ashipa, who also doubles as the Project Manager, Coke Studio Concerts,  expressed delight at the  success of the Ilorin outing , which was the eighth Coke Studio Campus Concert of Coke Studio Season 2.

"I am really impressed by the participation and enthusiasm of the students. Ilorin is renowned for its  great musical tradition so we decided to give aspiring artistes from the University this opportunity to perform on stage with some of  Nigeria's best.This has totally exceeded our expectations "  he commented.

In the spirit of the Coke Studio Concerts, the show at Unilorin commenced with a competition to select two upcoming artistes from the institution to perform with Dammy Krane and Reminisce .

400 level Library Science student, Ayeesha, came tops in the first round, trumping three other students to perform with the "Enterkraner" Dammy Krane;while Whalez, a 400 level student of Microbiology  got a chance to wow the crowd with Reminisce.

The crowd went wild as Zeez opened the innings, with "Ori E " and "Bobby E", reminding them of the irresistible beats of his  hits. Jaywon kept the tempo up with "This Year" , "Angelina" and "Tana Wole" before  Dammy Krane hit the stage  with  " My Dear",  "Ligali" "Sabi Dance" and " Amin". The excitement peaked when "Alaga Ibile ", Reminisce, came on stage to perform "Kako bi Chicken " "Too Mussh" and "Quality", drawing the curtain on the show with mega hit "Daddy".

The Coke Studio Campus Concert was conceived as an extension of the televised Coke Studio Africa show which brings together artistes from all over the continent to create a new and authentically African sound from different genres and styles of music. 

It has toured eight major campuses in Nigeria  including Lagos State Polytechnic, University of Benin, Abia State University, University of Lagos, Obafemi Awolowo University, the University of Port Harcourt and CRUTECH  with many of Nigeria’s biggest music artistes.
