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. I believe the last Buca was dope compared to this one

  2. 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
