K Camp, Streeter concert headlines Homecoming
Nov 14, 2016
Rapper K Camp got Claflin’s 2016 Homecoming started Saturday night, Nov. 12, with a splash.
Claflin held its concert featuring K Camp and Seyven Streeter, with the Spiff Kidz being the opening act. The concert was the start of many events on Claflin's campus this year for Homecoming.
A few students really enjoyed when K Camp launched bottles of water into a raucous crowd. It seemed to get everyone hyped.
"I really liked it when K Camp did his old songs and started throwing the water. It got everybody turned up," said Daquan Smith, junior mass communications major from Moncks Corner.
Smith said he really enjoyed how everyone was having a good time at the concert. Smith didn't attend the concert last year and he heard how much fun it was, so he wanted to attend this year.
Clark Porcher, a junior business management major from Charleston, enjoyed the K Camp performance. Porcher didn't like that the concert got shut down a little early.
"He was doing some stuff that wasn't in his contract," said Porcher, who is a member of the Student Activities Board that plays a role in selecting the concert artists.
Junior marketing major from Washington, D.C., Rasheed Gibbs, wasn't as interested in the artist performing as everyone else.
"I was just standing around looking at everything," Gibbs said. "I couldn't relate to any of the songs."
In the future, Gibbs said he would like for the school to try and get someone who is popular with and can related to students. He said the concert was not promoted well.
"I didn't know about the concert until Thursday," Gibbs said. "I was really debating if I wanted to go or not."
Gibbs said if it weren't for his friends showing up, he wouldn't have enjoyed himself.
