The UBORA LP 2 is not a sequel to the highly rated UBORA PR3SHA I did a while back. This blog post has no focus and is just about me yabbing on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on. If you just read all that “on” dier, you’re obviously bored enough to continue reading the whole post. Oh and its called LP 2 cos Eminem is the sh*t. #MMLP2
UBORA Awards is only 3 weeks away and already the pr3sha is back I recently found out from a credible source that Albert Ninepence has bought a tux and a new pair of sleek shoes to go along. If that’s not reason enough to go to UBORA, I don’t know what else is. I mean, Albert Ninepence of all people (no shots fired here, just fascination) – the bookworm of the school, the guy who can sit behind the library pc all day without getting up. I will literally pay double the amount those ASC guys are charging just to go snap shots of this once-in-a-life-time experience: NINEPENCE IN A TUX. Smh… and y’all would rather go see things like some fake eclipse over the weekend. NINEPENCE IN A TUX > Eclipse of the Sun. Ei Ei Ei Ei. Ninepence if you are reading this, please which super lucky girl are you taking? #jk
Down to business then. So the theme for this year’s ceremony is “A Touch of Gold”. Hmph! That’s a big leap considering the last two award ceremonies
went from mud to muck have not met expectations. There, it’s out there. I just had to say it. #KendrickInspiredMe. Anywayz, so yeah, the last two ceremonies didnt go so well according to multiple sources and students are worried their monies will shiii again! Rumor has it, after the last ceremony Admin had wanted to cancel the awards ceremony altogether cos it was a waste of money and had lost its significance.
Enter Michael Fiifi and his team. Now this ASC Committee has done a great job during their reign: Akwaaba Night was a hit, by all accounts; they’ve got an excellent PR Team; Code Fair went well; Friday Movie Nights are always a treat -oh and before I forget, my gal Ruweida is heading the planning committee. Now anyone, who knows Rue, knows that when she starts something she puts in 100% and most, if not all, entertainment committee events over the past year have been a success. Ninepence is the main reason I would go to the ceremony, but I’m also interested to see what Rue and her team have got planned.
WARNING: If you say a Touch of Gold dier we expect to go and find the place looking like King Midas’s home oo. We don’t wanna to walk into a KVIP cos as for that one we have some in our homes. Choosing Holiday Inn as the venue is already a plus, but if then that’s only half the work. The real test would be to make sure the programme lineup is not short of “golden” so that people would get their monies worth. Ah Ah Ah! Ridee I kai something. But ASC paa this 220 tickets dier ad3n? You have a student body of 600 and tickets don’t even cover half of that. Ad3n mo sru s3 mo b3 shi ka anaa?
I just wasted 600 words here that could’ve gone to my thesis, just because I felt inspired. Gonna end now cos I think I’ve said all I need to say, plus I have to get back to class. Wow, can’t believe its been over a year since my last post. #BlameitonAshesiPressure.
I think the theme should also be changed from a “A touch of Gold” to “UBORA …. even Ninepence is going!”
P.S – Its funny how outsiders thought the past two UBORA Awards were a hit cos they saw some really nice pics on facebook, twitter and instagram. Me dier, all my year’s in ashesi, I’ve really that even if the event is flopping, some ashesi person will put a nice pic out there, making you believe they’re at the event of the century. Check out my ASHESI HYPE piece for more on that.
