Globacom has announced the entry into the twin mega shows, the Glo Mega Music Nationwide Tour and the Glo Laffta Fest comedy Show.
Planned to hold in 27 cities around the country from April 2017, would be N2,000 recharge card usage within a month preceding the shows.
This is just as the company also announced that the two shows would take off next weekend, adding that the reduction in the threshold from the initial N3,000 to N2,000 would make it possible for more youths to attend the shows.
To indicate interest in attending the Glo Mega Music Concert, the company urged subscribers who have used up to N2,000 in the preceding month to text "Music" and their preferred location to a short code, 207. For instance, to attend the music show in Abuja, the subscriber should send "Music Abuja" to 204, while for the Laffta Fest Comedy show, the subscriber is to send "LOL" and the preferred location to short code 240.
