What better way to wind down the flagship event of our prestigious college than having a world-famous artist come and perform on our very own campus! Oculus S.P.I.T., in collaboration with Zaeden, hosted one of the grandest musical serenades on the night of 27th March 2022. The S.P.I.T. quadrangle was filled with young, enthusiastic students who gathered in big numbers since early in the evening to catch a glimpse of the newest upcoming talent in India.
Entry was given around 8 PM post-security checks. Within no time, the quad was packed with the audience. Zaeden came out to a nearly deafening roar! From “Tere Bina” to“Socha na tha” and from “Kya Karoon” to covers of songs by foreign artists like Lauv and Justin Bieber, the crowd hummed and repeated all the songs after him! A lucky superfan wearing Zaeden’s exclusive merchandise even got a chance to share the stage with him, and she was enthralled. Aashna Hegde further escalated the mood by making a short appearance in one of Zaeden’s songs. The event went smoothly, thanks to the core and subcommittee members handling the barricade and the very excited crowd.
