Last weekend during Oktoberfest I met two lovely pretty Naija chics. Its funny how you see Africans in a crowded environment and you can quickly point out each other and get along relatively well. We immediately connected as I mentioned I was headed to San Jose for a Naija party. Surprisingly it was the Nigerian Independence day party to which I bet they were pleased I was headed there.
As I post this track and wish all my Nigerian friends and online visitors a happy Naija Independence day. I cant help but look back and picture the dancefloor when DJ SLIM, dropped this track. This infectious beat and D’banj vocal inspired track has been the genius of their labels viral campaign which started a while back.
Mo’Hits Records have been running a competition that would give a chance to people with talents in dancing, comedy or anything entertaining by recording a video clip of themselves or their group dancing to this Oliver song.
The videos can be uploaded to YouTube and link emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, as I understand the videos will be judged based on how entertaining they are.
The 1st prize is $2500; 2nd prize is $2000; 3rd prize is $1500; 4th prize is $1000; 5th prize is $500. The Top 10 entries will be part of the Official Oliver video and the Top 50 gets a FREE Koko Mobile Handset (D’Banj owns this Network or Phone service).
Funniest thing though is how infectious the entire campaign or track is – I wish I had my camera to capture the Naijas who went buck wild last weekend. I love this .. enjoy.
