Public Health student takes home Brock’s Got Talent win

There’s no doubt about it, Olajumoke (Ola) Shobowale’s got talent.

The third-year Public Health student took home first place in the 2024 Brock’s Got Talent competition, hosted by the Brock University Students’ Union.

Shobowale participated in the competition’s finale on Thursday, Feb. 8 in front of a panel of judges, including Canada’s Got Talent finalist Maeve.

“Participating in Brock’s Got Talent wasn’t merely about performing; it was an opportunity for me to express my passion and forge connections with others in an enjoyable manner,” said Shobowale. “It provided an avenue to break away from the monotony of daily life and spread happiness. I’d eagerly embrace the experience again, drawn by the profound sense of satisfaction it provided.”

Shobowale will go on to represent Brock University in the Ontario’s Got Talent finals at Conestoga College on Friday, March 8, where she will compete against winners from seven other Ontario post-secondary institutions for the title and $900 worth of prizes. Last year, Brock’s Got Talent winner Amanda Ogunmekan, then a third-year Psychology student, won the 2023 Ontario’s Got Talent competition.
