12 higher institutions of learning have emerged top to vie for the four definite slots available for the much talked about Campus Connect: 2face & Friends Tour 2013.
According to 2faceonline.com, the official website of 2face Idibia, the 12 campuses are University of Lagos (UNILAG), University of Benin (UNIBEN), University of Ibadan (UI), University of Calabar (UNICAL) and University of Ilorin (UNILORIN).

Campus Connect, a production of Now Muzik En.Core/Hypertek in partnership with Soundcity, was launched to establish the re-connection between 2face and his fans on campus.
According to Efe Omorogbe of Now Muzik, ‘The overall objective is to ensure that we bridge the gap, find a solution to all the inherent problems that made it impossible for 2face to tour campus circuits in the last eight years’.
Star acts expected to hop on the ride with Africa’s finest include, but not limited to, Olamide, Dammy Krane, Rocksteady, Sheyi Shay, Durella, Capital FEMI, Harrysong, Sound Sultan, Crystals, Basket Mouth, Timi Dakolo and many others.
Voting for the definite four slots, on Idibia’s website, will close on February 20 by 10pm.
Omorogbe says the tour time table complete with venues, dates, artiste line up and after-party venues will be released after the close of voting.
