BUCA 2.0: BETTER OR WORSE? – BY OGUNLEYE OLUWAKOREDE

This year’s BUCA edition has
raised numerous controversies from oglers who attended the event. Critics are
of the view that the prestigious award show could not prove its worth this year.
The first issue faced was the late start of the programme. It started hours
after the proposed time and viewers did not see this as professional enough
from the event planners. The show was presented by Bowen’s finest host, Fikayo and Black MC. BOJ joined
these two individuals as host during the course of the show.

There were numerous acts for the
evening with honourable mentions of Horla,
Royce, Balogun OT, Adedayor, Jimi Jang, Hybeesolid, Morack, Peace, Viqq, Dami
J, Mr OT, Deca
and others.
There was a drama by ‘The Abnormals’ addressing the award
theme, ’For the Culture’. Tatama Deborah, the spoken words orator
also gave a great rendition about ‘The culture’.

Since BUCA would be one of Jesse’s
last appearances on a Bowen platform, he tried to make it a memorable one with
his usual way of directing cognisant shots at individuals present.
Moving away from appearances on
stage, let us examine activities on the runway. The fashion runway was brought
to the viewers by Gee clothing and Highness clothing. There were amazing exhibitions
of the brand’s work.

There was a theme song by Jimi Jang, Hybbesolid, Morack and
Peace which was produced by Miels.  Monster hits ‘Risika- Authe- Elebolo’ by three of Bowen’s best artiste was seen
as the best performances by a student for the evening. Mr OT, Jimi Jang and Dami J have evidently been able to show their
worth in crafting dance music and be masters of their game.
The disappointing moment for the
evening was the short performance by Ric
Hassani
. The viewers expected more minutes of good music but it ended up as
a flaw on the show. The fault cannot be pointed to be that of the organizers or
the artiste. BUCA would not be complete if the dance performances by Evolution,
SOG and MCcarious is not mentioned.
Unfortunately, no artiste was
revealed by BUCA organisers even after the rumours that passed around the
school community about Falz or Peter Okoye as a guest artiste.

Ric Hassani made a grand entrance close to 7pm and made a
remarkable performance of Gentleman and
Believe.
Some accolades to Bowen’s leading
MC’s, Fikayo and Black MC. These guys have been
successfully able anchor major shows in Bowen and both of them taking a BUCA
plaque to crown their efforts over the last year. A big shout to OmologoEnt. This brand has effectively
mastered big events in the school and we look forward to an improved BUCA 3.0.

  1. Wasn't in Bowen last year, so I can't say which one is better or worse. But a far as I'm concern, this buca is still the best event for the past 1year I've spent in this dry school

    1. I agree with Sophie, This school, makes me wonder if I'm in a seminary or school but BUCA made me feel like a university student
