After weeks of touring round campuses in the country with fun and excitement, popular comedian and On Air Personality, Emeka Erem, aka Ajebo, has completed his comedy and music concert tour tagged Ajebo Unleashed Campus Tour. The campus show, which was powered by Minimie Chinchin, held at the University of Abuja, Nassarawa State University, Leadcity University, Afebabalola University, University of Nigeria Nsukka, Adeleke University and University of Lagos.

Leading artistes, who joined Ajebo to give fun to Nigerian students included MI, MC Galaxy, Seyilaw, Skales, DiceIles, MC Shakara, Josh2funny, Mimiko, Hilarious Chinedu, Holy Faze, Destalker, Romeo, Osama, Akpororo, Kenny Blaq and lots more.

Speaking on the impact of the tour, Ajebo thanked students of the schools that were part of the tour and expressed his desire to do more schools next year. He also enjoined more corporate brands to support the Ajebo Unleashed Campus Tour movement, and encourage creativity amongst Nigerian youths.

The comedian expressed his appreciation to Minimie Chinchin for powering the 2017 edition of the tour, which shared a message of hope and inspiration to Nigerian youths.

Ajebo, who is popular on YouTube for his animation series, House of Ajebo, revealed that the aim was to give back to students in campuses. “We used two hash tags. One of is #DontDoDrugs. No matter how much it has been said, we will not stop talking about it. Drugs kill. As an entertainer, I can stand here today to tell you that I didn’t need to take any performance enhancing drug to perform on stage,” he said.

According to him, the second hash tag, #SurviveOnCreativity, is geared towards letting Nigerian youths know that their future is in their hands. The idea, he said, is to urge them to survive on their God given talents by building an entrepreneurial mindset even while on campus.

“So we pushed the message of entrepreneurship. We cannot protest, we cannot fight, and we cannot take up arms. What we have is entertainment and that is what we are using to talk to the youths of this country,” he said. Over 100,000 Naira was given out as prizes to talented people on each campus who participated in the #minimiechichinbreaktheboredomchallenge.
