Subscribers of Globacom who have been lucky to be selected as winners of the on-going GLOIN60SECONDS social media talent hunt have applauded the telco for initiating the competition which they described as a strong empowerment scheme.
A cross section of the fourth set of winners stated this whilst receiving their prize money at various Gloworld outlets across Nigeria, adding that the winnings will sufficiently assist them to achieve their dreams.
Some of the winners said the competition had helped them to showcase their talent to their online followers and increased their popularity on social media.
Five winners who emerged from Lagos include Ifeoluwa Ajibola, Oreoluwa Oladapo, Pakama Anthony, Agun Toluwalagbara and Stephen Ezute while the duo of Kelvin Obimba and Nafisat Abdulganiyu were selected as winners from Abuja.
In the same vein, Eze Chibueze and Odinaka Nnamani won from Enugu where they received their cheques, Peace Osagie won in Benin and also received her N50,000 cheque, just as Nathan Tonye got her cheque at the Gloworld, Port Harcourt.
One of the winners, a final year medical student of the University of Lagos, Ifeoluwa Ajibola (Mr Iffective on Instagram), says even though his studies are quite tedious, “you will always find time for your passion”. I now have more followers, more exposure, and I get motivated to do more freestyle; thanks to Glo.”
Another winner, Oreoluwa Oladapo, 23, a professional dance artiste, enthused “#GLOIN60SECONDS has increased my Instagram account. My level of creativity has also gone up because you have to be creative to realise your dream. This is the best platform for youths at the moment”.
GLOIN60SECONDS competition offers participants the opportunity to upload a one-minute video of themselves showcasing their talents on their social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #GLOIN60SECONDS. The video could be on music, dance, comedy, poetry or any other creative ability.
In addition, participants are expected to follow Glo on any of the company’s social media pages @Globacomlimited on Instagram, @Gloworld on Twitter and Gloworld on Facebook.
