The Dele Momodu Presidential Campaign Organisation is creatively engaging the multi talented youths of Nigeria in its presidential campaign with the unveiling of SING4VOTE – a competition in search of the best presidential campaign jingle and music video concept for the Dele Momodu 2011 presidential aspiration.
After a rigorous selection process by an initial SING4VOTE Assessment Committee (SAC), the best thirty (30) entries will emerge and then proceed to the final stage where they will compete for the first, second and third winning cash prizes of N2.5 million, N1.5 million and N1 million respectively before a select audience, the media and a SING4VOTE Selection Panel (SSP).
The competition is open to all Nigerians at home and in diaspora with particular interest in the youths. The procedure is simple and entails participants obtaining the competition’s registration form and recording a one-minute jingle – a fusion of English, Pidgin, Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo and any other indigenous Nigerian languages and sending it to the competition in MP3 format.
