It is 2 days to Jaw War 2021 and we all know it’s gonna be bomb! With Halls and Faculties preparing “fervently” for the trophy, enthusiasm has been building vigorously and the questions on people’s lips are:
What hall or faculty will win?
Is Ayeni Otito-Jesu speaking?
Who will lose and who will qualify for quarter finals?
Well, to be honest, these are hot questions! but the hotter question now, is:
Who are the top speakers speaking at Jaw War 2021?
For the first three questions, you can only get the answer when you attend Jaw War (Oh, don’t forget to get your front row seat ticket here for a cheap price of #500. You don’t wanna be the person sitting at the back😉).
