How will you grade AAUA Artiste among their counterpart
Talking about the finest artist on campus, I mean if anyone knows the likes of @beejay_smallz, treasuretizz,moxie,sunkie piper, Doz, Sterio, maverick ,u would know what I am Talking about about when I say good music.
This guys are bunch of talent and honestly they are doing fine in the industry and some of them have their videos on YouTube, MTV, hiptv and they are gradually building their ways to stardom.
We are trying our best to make sure our members are been heard , but limelight isnt for everyone. If u will shine u will shine.
Although previous administrations had ways of doing things then but this regime I tried to introduce a new idea which I felt would be an avenue for our members to reach the heart of their fan on campus. We organised a kind of live show where student perform award winning songs the same way it was performed by its original owner.
This live show was tagged grab the mic GTM, AAUA Artiste both big and small are fire
