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;
The final promises to be an intriguing and explosive end to what has been an amazing journey. So, once again,

The Champions League of public speaking is back!!!
