My Campus Band Kicks Off


Plans have been concluded to roll out what is Nigeria’s first campus reality talent hunt show tagged My Campus Band.

According to Bidemi Alaran, the CEO, Matrix Entertainment, My Campus Band is conceptualised as talent hunt show focusing on musical bands whose membership are strictly made up of students of tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

Alaran disclosed that the show is different because it combines song writing, singing, costume, instrumentals, dancing and choreography, while it encourages competitive spirit among the 150 tertiary institutions across the nation with over four million students.

He stated that all members of each band are expected to be in the same school but they could come from different campuses as students who are talented in music are encouraged to pool together and present the platform to showcase their talent before an unprecedented live and television audience.

The CEO added that My Campus Band is expected to redefine Nigeria’s music with the expectation that in this decade, a Nigerian talent will win a Grammy award and achieve global recognition.
