Sprite Triple Slam Thrills UNIBEN

 
Hundreds of students thronged the Indoor Sports Hall of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) for the 2015 edition of the Sprite Triple Slam (STS) experiential activations recently. They gathered to enjoy the unique and exciting fusion of basketball, music and dance skills which formed the three pillars of the activation.
The event, which kicked off at 2.00pm, saw many of the students taking turns to showcase their skills in one or more of the Basketball, Dance and Music categories.

According to some of the students, it was a relief to take time out from the demands of examinations to relax at an event sparked with such fun and excitement. “We should do this from time to time. I have been very refreshed by Sprite today,” said Rex Joseph, who was the crowd’s favourite in the Dance category.
Another star performer, Nwachukwu Lilibeth, a 100-level student in the Department of Fisheries, who participated in Basketball, expressed delight saying, “I am so excited. This is actually the first gift I have ever won in my life, and I am happy it came from Sprite.”
Recounting how he was discovered through Sprite Triple Slam a few years ago, Otse John, who now plays professionally for Dodan Warriors Basketball Club said, “I was in 100-level in the university then. After the regional competitions where I emerged winner, I progressed to the finals which held in Lagos. It was while playing in Lagos that I was approached to play in the Nigerian league, and since then, my life has never been the same.”
The event reached its climax with a musical performance by Vector da Viper, who got the audience on their feet as he stepped on the stage. Calling for the crowd to join him on stage, the “King Kong” crooner practically had the students screaming and dancing all through his performance.
Speaking after the event, Assistant Brand Manager, Flavours, Coca-Cola Nigeria Limited, Olajumoke Oyewole reaffirmed that Sprite is committed to providing a unique platform that allows for self-expression by its consumers – the Sprite Triple Slam.
