MM80: ROAD TO THE FINALE

The speeches. The suits. The swagger. In an epic battle of war and wits, who comes out on top? Who, becomes the next MicMan? On July 8th, at the faculty of law annex, we will witness moments of magic as 6 of the very best employ their oratory skills in a bid win to win the grand prize. 

The first round began on the 25th of May as the contestants divided into 14 groups began their presentations. These first round  presentations continued until the 2nd  of June. The second round held on the 8th of June with thirty two contestants remaining. 
The Semi finals were up next and began on the 15th of June with fifteen contestants left. In this round, the contestants’ speeches were spiced with  quotes from popular figures like Confucius, Neymar, Lao Tzu and even Twitter feminists (men are scum). 

The topics given were technical and needed to be interpreted creatively and smartly. Also, there were some seeded candidates who went straight to the second round. They were selected based on their known prowess in the art of public speaking. Examples are Deborah Oguike and Alex Chukwu. They still had to register though. 

The judges bench wasn’t lacking in quality as well. Some of the judges at the various rounds of the competition were Babajide Micheal (Last year’s winner), Toyosi Onikosi, Rahman Apalara, Hosanna Adusa-Williams, Tobi Olowokure and Jones Ayuwo. Yes, Jones Ayuwo. 

At the end of these word wars, six contestants stood above the rest and were selected as the finalists; 
Tolu Ogunsanya 
Ipinnu AdeAdemilua
Alex Chukwu
Deborah Oguike
Idono
Sharon Omilaju

The final promises  to be an intriguing and explosive end to what has been an amazing journey. So, once again,
Project MicMan on the 8th of July at the Faculty of Law Annex, University of Lagos. 

The Champions League of public speaking is back!!!

LSS GAMES: PLAYERS TO WATCH

With the LSS games seemingly drawing closer ,we are obliged to take an indepth look into the teams as well as marquee players with the potential of making the tournament worth while .
CLASS OF 2021

Newbies to the games but certainly not lacking in confidence .The class in their first competitive match played wonderfully well,only to be hard done by a late samba penalty during this year’s novelty match against the faculty team .A team consisting of young ,determined talents and would be looking to cause an upset in this year’s games .

1.DAMILOLA

The pacy winger has been deployed by his team to play as second striker for the purpose of the games .With the ability to ghost past defenders and good hold up play in his arsenal,he would definitely be their main goal threat .Scoring on his debut for the class in the 2-1 defeat to the faculty team,he has gone on to impress .Winning the inaugural Flufa club system with Vado FC and hitting in 3 goals in as many matches .

He would definitely be a force to reckon with .

2.EZE 

Another player to anticipate is versatile defensive midfielder Eze.Although originally a defensive midfielder ,Eze can also feature in different defensive positions this he did for club side Dorchester UNITED were he played as a make shift defender for the suspended lenny ,instrumental in his team getting to the final .

The hardtackling midfielder ,whose main shortcoming is his lack of good passing range ,other than that a joy to watch.
CLASS OF 2020
A team with abundance of talent ,but however lacked productivity last year registering just a single point at the games .Would be looking to amend that broken record at this year’s games .Hoping that some certain players turn up,those players include :
1.AYODEJI DADA

The influential talisman of the class of 20′ .last year’s highest goal scorer at the competition as well as leading marksman during the FLUFA CLUB SYSTEM tournament ,although his goals couldn’t see his team through .

His strength lies in his pace,trickery,great ball control ,balance ,agility ,and especially a great eye for goal.

With over 15 goals scored in competitive matches for his class ,a player which all teams have to take note of especially the class of 17 ,whom he scored a HATTRICK against last year sealing a thrilling 3-3 draw .

Playing in a variety of positions ,either as the main striker ,the attacking midfielder or even on the wings .

However he seems to tire out easily,apart from that ,a man in fine goal scoring form.a star in the making .
2.EFEMENA 

Another player to look out for during the games is all-rounder utility player efemena.

The versatile playmaker ,One of the very few players in the faculty boasting the ability to play anywhere on the pitch if required ,but usually been deployed as a forward where he can hurt defences.

He brings the experience to the team alongside other key players ,with his industry,pace,trickery,tenacity,a good passing range and a great eye for goal ,although couldn’t find the net for his class during last year’s games also with over 10 competitive goals for the class of 20′ .

  
3.FADIGHA KHALIL

The Captain of the Law Class of 20 Football team. He is the heart and soul of the team and his passion for the game is second to none. He is known for his ability to drive forward from the Centre of the midfield and draw challenges from opponents, even though unfortunately, he has failed to find the back of the net in any of his appearances. His influential performances however, helped drive his club team, Dorchester United to the final of the FLUFA competition where they lost on penalties to Vado FC. Although not as assured of a starting place like Last year, the captain of the team will certainly feature for them this year and drive them to victory

CLASS OF 2019
The team poses a huge physical challenge to other teams as they consists on strong muscular atheletes .Nevertheless ,potential title challengers but would be needing huge starlets to be in red hot form

1.ROBERT

Arguably the best footballer in the faculty ,truly a player that has it all starting from blistering pace,amazing awareness ,great control ,trickery as well has a huge physical presence .

Nominated as the shock revelation during last year’s games ,although did not have a great tournament with his team finishing fourth with just a single sin .I.e a 3-0 hammering of the class of 20 with Robert scoring one and assisting the remaining. 

He featured for his club side MAFIA FC during the FLUFA CLUB system tournament scoring 4 times ,but was also unable to see his team through to the final .

The main target man for the class of 19 ,through him all goals come forth .

He would want to make a definite statement to the teams I’m the faculty as well the university of Lagos .

2.ID LAWRENCE 

The leader of the titanic ship that is the class of 19 .The heartbeat of the midfield of the team 

The versatile central midfielder brings the creativity and experience to the team. As well as Robert failed pull his club side through during the club system tournament and would be looking to right the wrongs at this year’s games .

3.LENNY

A thorn in the sight of every attacker that comes in contact .The centre back has formed a formidable pairing alongside Peter Paris in the heart of the defence .

Going forward he poses a massive threat with his great presence in the box and would be looking to prevent as well as notch up goals for his class team .
CLASS OF 2018
Finalists in the finals of 2015 ,and also missing out of last year’s final due to points deduction after a clash of players between the said class and the class of 19 .

However , a strong team not lacking in depth . A team that truly should be feared .
1.KAY 

Captain of the squadron .Traditionally a midfielder ,Kay also amongst the special players who can play in various positions if required .This great attribute was portrayed as he was instrumental in his club side’s title charge in the Flufa club system competition.

A tenacious midfielder ,who often tends to show his aggressive side as well as his creativity coupled with great composure .

He would need to be in red hot form if his team is to succeed in their charge for the title .
2.VARLO

Another versatile player who could be deployed anywhere on the pitch if required .

With his amazing pace and dribbling skill giving him the ability to ghost past players showcased during his club side’s title win in the club system final.

It is fair to say that varlo and Kay are both wonderful individual players but, both perform better with on another complementing the other .And they would be key to their teams hope of lifting the grand prize .
CLASS OF 2017
A class truly boasting of raw talents ,finalists in the last two tournaments but still yet to win the golden prize.This being their final year,maybe third time is the charm .

With the most experienced squad going into this year’s games ,they would be hoping that certain players can fulfill all righteousness .
1.QUASIM 

Dep.team captain for the class .Would definitely bring his A-game ,with his creativity ,strength and balance to the heart of the team’s midfield .

Missed out of the club system tournament due to injury ,hopefully returns with a bang.

His ability to spot a pass ,would be of paramount interest by all and sundry .one thing is for sure other teams better be wary of the midfield maestro

2.SEYILAW 

Storming out of the blocks would see seyilaw ,the blistering winger with abundance of speed and trickery in his arsenal .A thorn in the sight of any defender going against him.

Another winner with team Vado at this year’s FLUFA CLUB system tournament notching up 2 goals .He would want to put his decisive penalty miss of last year that handed the title to the class of 16 .Would definitely want to make amends for the error and bring home the trophy .

3.TOBI (MACHO)

Macho as he is popularly known by all .The captain of the star studded team and an embodiment of strength (c’mon look at this man ) .His awareness sets him apart from the reminder of the squad .

Once again another player with the ability to play in any position if required .Creativity and industry is key to captain fantastic and he would want to lead this team to victory this time around with one last try .
With the host of players surrounding the class of 17′ one major problem for them is going to be taking their chances when created as we all witnessed what happened in last year’s finale .
 With the quality of players on show ,this promises to be a thrilling tournament .

ABIOLA OJO GAMES: TEAM BY TEAM ANALYSIS

Year 5.

Last year’s Black Panthers are probably the favourites for this year’s tournament. If they can get themselves to train that is. They got so close last year, losing on penalties to the then year 5. Seyi Law must still have nightmares about the woodwork, even his mates now call him barrister Seyi as only him seems to be called to bar
Key Players: There is a lot of quality in the side but few players are some worth mentioning. You probably know them but let me just do my job.
Tobolos– Highest scorer for the class of 17. He has been in incredible form having just scored his first the year before the last. His most potent skill is notably his dedication and sheer will. He is not one to lose the ball as he will chase it to every corner of the pitch. Let’s hope his will will will his team to victory. 

Macho– Power, Leader, Composure, snake bite that’s all. 

Quasim– the multi talented sports maestro is the silent commander on the pitch. He isn’t overly glowing on the pitch but in the shadows he orchestrates the play like the master full puppeteer. 

Seyi law for honourable mention. With a playing style that reminds you a little bit of zaha and penalty woes like zaza let’s hope he can improve and remedy his errors 

This quartet can decide the games by themselves. Skill, workrate and end product are in abundance and defences (and attacks) should beware.
Special mention to Pelumi…and Dormo.
Year 4.

Last year’s Winter Soldiers, can they bring on the heat this time around? Their classmates will hope so. They’ll want to bring the trophy back from Law School (or Pryce’s studio). With their recent history, it’ll be fun to see how they temper their anger without curbing that amazing competitive spirit that has made them so interesting.
Key Player: Kay. This fantastic piece of footballing magic is probably the faculty’s best utility player (Robert might disagree though). Rumors had it that he would have played for Southampton if not that he thought they were too small a team for him. And he wants to focus on his Law career, of course.

Special mention goes to Russell also known as Q. And Ogalu Bolaji whose twinkle toes seems to be one of the many talents that make their class a unique blend.
YEAR 3.

WAR MACHINES!!
You can practically hear Robert shouting it. The class has a lot of very good players and will be looking to go all the way to the title. Hopefully, Cannon can finally become a title winning coach.
Key Player: Robert. The only forward that is box to box. Trust me, you haven’t seen anything like this (except you watched his last game of course). Special mention to the rest of the team, his supporting cast.
They also have a new intake in the defensive midfielder Olu who seems to just be the missing piece in the jigsaw puzzle of their team. ( Well to some the team plays like they are puzzled)
Year 2.

The Class of 2020, the former antmen, are no longer strangers to the Faculty’s sporting event, which means they have no more excuses for failure. Everyone expected a stronger performance from them last year but they failed to live up to expectations. This year however they are not the same team they were last year. They have trained and improved their team for the games but will it be enough to see them crowned victors this year? We can only watch.
Key Player: Femi. The rock. The only 4. This Kante/Gattuso/Casemiro hybrid has improved from the average DM he was last year to a beast who dazzles match after match. Known for not giving up, there’s no need to dribble him because he won’t leave you alone. The Class of 20 can’t wait to get their amazing DM to work.
Special mention to Efemena, Ayo, Afilaka, Semiloore, Khalil, OMIO. Lemme kuku mention the whole team.
Year 1.

The rookies. The debutants. The new boys on the block, sorry pitch. Anyways, the Law Class of 21 are not here to play with anyone. They’re here to win. A formidable team, their strength is in teamwork (what do you expect in a team sport?) rather than individual brilliance. They’ll surely be a pleasure to watch, not play against. Robert might have something to say about that though.
Key Player: John. In an era filled with brilliant attacking players, it’s refreshing to see a defensive player like John (and Kante) take after Femi from the Law Class of 20 and put on a wonderful show for the spectators. Tackles, interceptions and the occasional goal make John a delight to watch. Attackers, beware!
Special mention to Dami and Laolu.​

REMINDER: PROFESSOR ABIOLA OJO GAMES ANNUAL PRESS CONFERENCE

Come Friday the 9th of June 2017,the faculty of law would host it’s annual Professor Abiola Ojo sports festival press conference .The conference is going to be focusing on the tactical analysis of the various coaches on the various sports being contested .With the introduction of an Olympic themed concept .

This year’s press conference would also witness the unveiling of the unified games trophy which would be the symbol of dominance for the class with the highest number of medals ,accompanied with other trophies and medals.

This year’s competition would be tagged “CLASH OF THE TITANS “. Last year’s conference witnessed some brain racking decisions with eventual answers costing some teams ,and this year’s conference promises to be no different .

In past times,the games have been framed up on the the backbone of the hotly contested football competition ,and this year’s conference although with the introduction of the Olympic theme would probably be no different .With that been said ,the thought everyone should keep in mind is the fact that none of the contesting classes has been able to get their hands on the conveted prize at least except for the class of 21′ who for them would be the first taste of the games. The reminder would definitely go out with a point to prove as this year the stakes would be raised,no holds barred .

This year’s conference would for sure be the starting point and possibly spell the end for each and every competitor .

ADRONITIS

Only a phrase resounds in my head, “I’m sorry “ .If you ask me, I don’t know for what exactly. No, I don’t particularly have any regrets, but I definitely feel the absence of your youthful presence.Your courage, I immediately admired, saying you loved me , investing so much time to that effectgave so much to know me , and you still had all for loss.
If only I knew me, I’ve never quite deciphered what this creature “Me” is about. When you ask me , who exactly I am, what I want, what my spec is, or what captivates me; All these questions, lead me to a door, that may lead to a possible answer, walking through this door with all excitement to find you these answers, I am only welcomed by the barricade of yet another door and another.
Forgive me, forgive my inability to love you back, I do not know how to. I do not know what “ Right” is right or might be wrong.
Pardon me for shutting the door against any acknowledgement of your love, I’m just skeptical, reality in itself might not be real, and the word “ Love” in itself might be synonymous to hurt, deceit and hate.
I see your back now, walking away with all determination, because you finally see, the things I couldn’t bring myself to tell you; that I’m not that one, I’m not worthy of this love of yours and you cannot discern my complexities , you never will, I can’t myself.
I replay your last words to me and the coldness with which they were relayed , I replay the words you first blurted out and the gleaming passion in your eyes. The story wouldn’t have been any different , I am still a puzzle , laid back, not able to fix itself. So let me be, that lone warrior, whose appearance is as a dove, but whose rigours is as the troubled sea’s.
You have shown me that I am not without any emotions, a cold heart .I feel my heart’ s hurt in every word I scribble down. You have opened yet another door, I thought was lost in oblivion, and for this, I pledge my gratitude from the other side.

I, NOCTURNAL, NOCEUR

I understand in life there’s a cycle for everything, and furthermore, there is the average standard to these cycles, of which you mustn’t fall below or above.
You see, above all cycles is the lifecycle, where a person cannot die too young or else he was killed by superficial forces ,or live too old as then, he would be tagged as the superficial force behind the death of his younger generations.
Embedded in this major cycle, is the eating cycle, where you can’t eat a little too little else you’re tagged sick or a bit too much and you’re called glutton.
Then there’s also the growth cycle where you can’t be too short for your age else you’re asked to overdose on pulse (beans), or too tall and then you’re condemned to the basketball court.You can’t be too thin else you have sickle cell or you’re too fat and you’re almost never getting a boyfriend i.e you’re obese😂😂.

Most important of these cycles, to me is the “sleep cycle”. What standard time, of the 24hours in one day, is the human body and mind paralysed to sleep and it’s activities numbed to slumber?. Biology tells me to every human, 8 hours of an ephemeral bedrest is allocated. Logically calculated this would be from 11pm-6am. When a person falls short of the yardstick of this highly exhorted cycle , he is named after Jonah i.e sleepyhead, Lazy, or ornery, all qualifying “Abnormal”.

On a first note, I’m lucid at night and a great slug by daybreak. Before you tag me “lazy, ornery,or sluggard ” allow me justify myself by giving a breakdown of my night plan, after the lights are out and every other normal mortal assumes their hibernation.

10:55pm…
My average African mum walks into my room, reminds me of how my usual excuse of sleeping late would not be tantamount an excuse to wake up late.She shuts the door mumbling something about how my mates are all asleep, in a bid to be up and doing the next day. I sulk under my sheets, faking my own sleep (although at this moment I wish the sleep was legitimate). I struggle , trying to keep my eyelids shut and actually try to really sleep. About two scenes from the day, come into limelight behind my eyelids and this completely flopps every plan I have to sleep at the normal time nature recquires.

11pm…
Everywhere’s dead silent now. The noise of the silence awakens my eyes back to the reality of the phone I tucked into my pillowcase at the sound of my mum’s footsteps five minutes ago.I begin to reply all my messages, including the unnecessary broadcasts with a “thank you“😩.All in a bid to discover abnormals as myself. I frolic up and around Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat as I unleash my stalking personae. At this point I remember how PHCN will not bring light in the light of the day and how I must save my subscription. I chat a little more and then I put my phone on flight mode.
3am…
At this point I tell myself its time to sleep and once again try the “eyelids shut” technique of sleeping. Sudden clatters from the kitchen indicate that the fellow nocturnals of the other specie are wide awake.I remember my mum once likened me to a rodent , and I remember the half opened cookies in the fridge. I am reminded of the sordid state of hunger my stomach is in and sneak out and back in, making a grab for the cookie. I carefully munch it in and tuck the wrap under my bed to displace any proof of my theft. I am thirsty from the stolen cookie, and once again sneak into the kitchen to get a drink from the dispenser, this time almost squashing a mouse with my foot. I hurry back after my drink and I’m determined to sleep now. Except, as i lay to sleep, I remember that I have a crush on Lanre and another round of “nightdreaming” begins. I think about what I could do to catch his attention. I remember stalking his page and seeing all those “instagram girls ” comment flirtatiously on his “hot hot” posts. Then I convince myself or instead, confuse myself, that he’d rather be into a girl like me. I dream of our prospective awkward moments of love, what marriage would feel like looking into his eyes as he looks fit in his tuxedo and I look my prettiest in my silvery white wedding dress. I then think of the famous ‘wedding night” and I’m rushed back to the reality that I’ll always be to him, if he ever noticed, the girl across his library desk. Then I console myself with the thought that one day I’d drive a Benz into the faculty in a hot black dress,dark shades , flerky hair and make up, and then, he’ll be only an option to me ☺.

5am…
The cock Iya Pelumi gave my mum as a christmas present lets out its alarming first crow and then I begin to panic. Thinking , I had just one hour left to sleep, after I once again jeopardised my bedtime. I promise myself I’d sleep only for an hour with the intent of cheating nature. Soon I am unaware of my environment and deep asleep.

10am…
I toss and turn in my sheets, wondering why the room felt unusually hot. I reluctantly open my eyes to check if the fan was still rolling and I am almost blinded by the sharp ray of the Sun from my window. I hurriedly check my phone, my mind blown off and my mouth wide agape. I rush to view my alarm icon and I soon see my notification “Missed alarm :5:30am; 5:35am; 5:40am; 5:45am, 5:50am; 5:55am; 6:00am“.
Noooo, I have a test for 10:30am“, I scream running into the bathroom with the intention of doing the infamous “rubb and shine “.

Ps : I dosed all through my test and subsequent lectures.
Ps: It’s a repeated cycle😓.
