2016 Imo Carnival: Uwe Nja 2015 team got the trophy!!!
It is no longer news that the just concluded 2016 Imo Carnival was said to be the highest since creation of Imo State. It was really one of a kind, and a true celebration of excellence. Many people came from all walks of life, and from different parts of the state to felicitate with Imolites on this awesome outing.
One of our journalists, Ethelbert Obinna Umeh was in Owerri, the state capital to witness the grand finale of the event. It is interesting for our readers to know that queen Uwe Nja 2015 (Lilian Adolf Njiribeako) was in the team that took the first position. She was in the Deputy Governor’s band. The team performed to the amazement of all that was there.
Their matching, dancing style and costume was legendary, which really depicts that of kings and queens. The governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha was super excited for the team that took the first position, and he quickly promised to give them 10 million naira, and also promised to take them to the next Calabar carnival.
A victory party was held in their honour on Thursday, 22nd December, evening at the Deputy Governors lodge. It was really an awesome outing. Chatting with our journalist about the carnival, Queen Lilian expressed great thanks to God for guiding them through all their preparatory stage and for eventually clinching the trophy, which was a handsome reward of hard work. Surely, hard work pays great dividends.
Queen Uwe Nja 2015 is one of the fastest rising fashion model, runway model and beauty queen in Africa. She always associates herself with excellence. We are proud of her, and wish her Merry Christmas and many happy returns for the New Year 2017.
