Tech-U Students join Songbirds to shoot Varsity’s poetry videos

Five First Technical University Students have gained location experience as they joined the Akeem Lasisi & the Songbirds group to shoot some poetry videos that celebrate the essence of the university.

They are beauty queen, Funmi Adekanye;  Aisha Adeleke, Niniola Oladeji, Sunday Oyedapo and Malik Agboluaje.

They participated in three of the four tracks shot, with all of them giving their best performances.

Tech-U’s PRO, Akeem Lasisi, who is also a renowned poet and author of the poems, applauded the students, saying they demonstrated much potential.

He said, “They were all with us throughout the two days we shot the videos at the Tech-U main campus and at the Ajoda Campus. The titles of the poems they participated in shooting are ENNOBLING MINDS (Agbamurere), TOTAL EDUCATION and WE ARE NOT THE FIRST BECAUSE WE ARE THE FIRST (Ibadan Lawa).

He added, “What surprised me is that they got a short notice, yet they blended well. They responded well to the director’s guideline. They coped with production pains but also enjoyed the memorable talent-developing experience associated with the job.”

The videos are currently being edited and will soon be on various media.
