on

History was made recently in Emohua Kingdom, Rivers State, as the people of the area witnessed a rare celebration  following the historic visit of Go Round Community Worldwide to the Paramount Ruler of Emohua Kingdom, Ohna, Sir Sergeant Awuse, Olo  IV , Nneweli  Emohua XII in his palace at Rumuche-Emohua.
Speaking at the well attended event, the founder and leader of the Go Round Community, Bro. Felix Obuah stated that the purpose of their visit was to give honour to whom honour  is due  and to felicitate with their political leader and mentor, over his divine emergence as the new first class traditional ruler of Emohua Clan.
Obuah, who was the former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Rivers State, also noted that their visit was to commend Ohna Awuse for his selfless contributions to the peace and harmony in the community, which made their visit to the Kingdom possible.
The former Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA) boss explained that Go Round Community is a universal association of people with like minds, who believe in oneness, peace, equity and justice as well as love for one another, which the present administration of Governor Nyesom Wike also upholds.
He lauded the Governor for the recognition the state government accorded Ohna Awuse as the new first class traditional ruler of Emohua Kingdom.
He described Awuse as a dogged fighter and one of the leading political gladiators in Nigeria.
Responding, Ohna Awuse, who could not conceal his joy for the unique visit, show of love, solidarity and goodwill towards him by the Go Round Community, said, “this is one of the happiest moments of my life, today is like the beginning of my reign. I expected a simple courtesy call and not this large crowd of well meaning people from within and  outside the State and beyond for which l am highly grateful and honoured.
“Go Round Community has not only shown love and friendship towards me as a person, but to the entire good people of Emohua Community. This historic visit has revived the age long peaceful co-existence between the Ogba and Ikwerre ethnic nationalities of Rivers State”, he said.
According to Ohna Awuse, “Go Round Community is worthy of the name as their credo, Ibiri mey biri which literally means when you live, I live  is an eloquent testimony of their love and oneness. I am indeed glad with your community of like minds. I am delighted that one of my sons is your member. I will encourage the rest to also join you”,  he said.
The EMOLGA monarch disclosed that he was once a politician, but if people today say he is still a politician, he is comfortable with that. “Once a soldier, always a soldier. Our party, the PDP is a grassroot party, our governorship candidate in the 2023 election, Siminalayi Joseph Fubura  is the Rivers State Governor in waiting. We thank Governor Nyesom Wike and the PDP leadership in the State for giving all the governorship  aspirants a level playing field to contest, therefore, the emergence of Fubara is a divine mandate we shall all support him”,he declared.
Awuse further thanked Governor Wike  for giving Rivers people the opportunity to reap the benefits of this present democratic dispensation in the State. “ Our Governor is a good man and God fearing, he planted this fruitful tree from which all of us are reaping today. We shall continue to pray for him and encourage him to do more, wherever he goes, there we shall all go”, he stated.
Also speaking, the Chairman of Emohua Local Government Area,  Dr. Chidi Lloyd  lauded Go Round Community for their visit which he said was a great honour to Ohna Awuse,and also commended Ohna Awuse for his humility and leadership qualities which has endeared him  to the hearts of his  large crowd of followers and has contributed to his increasingly amazing popularity in the State and beyond.
In his vote of thanks, the Deputy Speaker Rivers State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Edison Ehie expressed gratitude to God for the life of Ohna Awuse which he said has impacted positively in the lives of his ardent followers, while his legendary  exploits in the PDP as a party remains a legacy for all to see.
He pleaded with the traditional ruler to carry everybody along in his administration to move the community forward, because to whom much is given much is also expected. Hon. Ehie also lauded Go Round Community for identifying with the new Emohua Monarch.
Highlights of the glamorous event which showcased  the traditional heritage of Emohua Clan, also featured songs of praise by  the Eagle Voices of the God Church seven days, Eagle Island Port Harcourt led by Pastor Douglas Iyama, gospel renditions by Ayala Classic Brass Bands of Bayelsa State, led by Gospel Okoroede and cultural displays led Udoeli Cultural Band of Emohua. Others include Giration by Melody Group of Emohua, wining, dining and dancing extravaganza and other side attractions.

Big Brother Naija 2022 Kicks Off, July 23, 24

Published

on

On Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24, the most watched Nigerian reality TV show, Big Brother Naija will kick off for a seventh edition. The show would get fascinated Nigerians talking again and produce the next coterie of superstars before they are put aside for another set of reality stars, then the cycle continues.
While the reality show has given former contestants the opportunity of a lifetime to see beautiful cities across the globe and travel beyond the shore of Nigeria, more-often-than-not, once the buzz dies, they are left to fend for themselves and rediscover their steps.
Should a prospective reality star go into the house without a proper plan for himself or herself once the show comes to a conclusion, they would be back to square one.
The pampering and fending in Big Brother’s House is only for two-three months, then the media team of the reality show takes care of their image and publicity for the next calendar year before they are allowed to dip their feet into the sea immediately after the reunion show of that season comes to a conclusion.
Once they are back to reality, they have to begin to struggle for endorsement deals, creating a more resourceful career path and becoming a person of value which was their initial aim and objective prior to heading into Big Brother’s House. However, they get lost in the excitement of being talked about for several weeks then fade away into obscurity.
It’s barely a year since WhiteMoney emerged winner of the 2021 Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eyes edition, albeit, his music career is yet to take off. Life outside the ‘kitchen’ is a different reality, when the fans are no longer watching, it is onerous to carve a career for oneself.
Also, she has continued to remain relevant on social media due to her value. Should she be able to evolve, she would attain her utmost potential.
Meanwhile, housemates such as JayPaul, Arin, Tega Dominic, Beatrice, Adeniyi Lawai, to name a few have been unable to carve a niche for themselves. As a matter of fact, they fizzled out prior to the conclusion of the show. Moreover, they had no storylines during the recently concluded BBNaija Shine Ya Eyes show; collectively, the show was weak.
This is why you do not enter the Big Brother competition with a ‘dream’, most times, it ends up being a ‘pipe dream’. The winner of the 2020 BBNaija Lockdown edition, Laycon showed the world what he was made of with his content and strategy.
Nobody saw him coming, he delivered a gauntlet attack on Nigerians. Gave Nigerians and viewers across the globe a fascinating show on television, then his music projects did the magic outside of the house.
In 2020, you could not escape Laycon. He was everywhere and won the show by a fine margin. The prospective housemates should learn from him, going into the competition means you are building on a foundation you already designed for yourself, your team and most importantly, the brand
Alot of reality stars go into the competition with a ‘vague dream’, abstract to say the least, then they are surprised when nobody buys into their agenda or ploy.
What prospective housemates need to know?
On Saturday, July 23, Nigerians will be introduced to a new set of reality stars. The number of housemates is yet to be confirmed, however, by Sunday night viewers would become more familiar with the direction of the new sea
