Yes, the longest spanning, most populated, most lucrative, most rewarding and most supercalifragilisticespialadocious public speaking competition EVER in the Faculty of Law. How so? In summary:-

Still confused about the format?

How It all goes down:-

48 contestants grouped into 12 groups with 4 contestants in each group slug it out. The best speaker in each group qualifies to the next round. The 4 “best losers” also qualify to the next round, making a total of 16 moving to the next round. (ROUND 1)The 16 speakers then meet up with another set of 16 “seeded” speakers comprising 8 invited highly rated speakers from the Faculty of Law and 8 invited highly rated speakers from the 7 other faculties in UNILAG. Thus completing 32 speakers, who would be seeded and grouped into 8 groups with 4 contestants in each group with the top 2 speakers from each group qualifying for the Semi-Finals.(ROUND 2)The 16 Semi Finalists would then contest in one all-encompassing battle royale, with the top 6 speakers qualifying for the final.(SEMI FINAL)The top 6 speakers would then battle it out, from which 1 winner would emerge.(THE FINAL)

Now close your eyes, think earnestly about it, imagine the moment when they call out your name as the winner of Project Mic Man,  forget about the 70,000 Naira and plethora of other stuff, forget about the euphoria, the gratification, the booming celebratory champion music, the people lifting you up in the air (either physically or with their shouts of elation), forget about the aura that’ll envelope you, the cheers, the hugs and kisses, the sky-rocket in famzers, fans and popularity. Forget all that, just close your eyes and think, just think about the fact that you just beat 63 other people in a competition, 63 of the best public speakers in the University of Lagos. Sixty Three!!
