My Calabar Carnival Experience

I was invited to Calabar by members of the Carnival Calabar organising committee as a Judge for the main Carnival which took place on Sunday Dec 27th 2009 in Calabar, Cross River State. There were 37 judges in all, drawn from various states of the country and from different professions. There was an ex University Vice Chancellor, professors, lecturers, lawyers, journalists, art enthusiasts etc. And I was amongst them...I feel too honoured.

It was my first time in the State and I had the most amazing time.















At the stadium with Kevin (BB 4 winner) and other carnival judges and friends

MI and a few other Nigerian artistes performed at the Stadium on Saturday Dec 26th but I was only able to catch MI's show which was incredible. He performed with Ice Prince and Kevin, BB4 winner.

I took some pictures with my camera...very amateurish but enjoy...:-)  



Governors of Cross River State and Rivers State arriving the carnival. We shared thesame boot so I was able to take close up pix of them.


Miss Carnival Calabar 2009 who sat directly behind me...


We shared same tent with Gov of Cross River State, Liyel Imoke...who came before the carnival started to make sure everything was in place and also to greet the judges...:-)




Meeting with other Calabar carnival judges a day before the carnival


At the hotel with two other judges and a friend of the house. Wearing black is El Nathan (A lawyer from Abuja - a judge ). A little behind me is Kaseem (a BBC reporter - a judge) and Bill Uko.

I took over 500 pictures of the carnival...will upload more for you guys to see, especially pictures from the carnival itself...back later.
Hope you all are having a fab time...
Catch you later...
Kisses

from another "black" lover...

some of us just really luv black outfits..aint nothing wrong with dat...abeg let linda be..
i wear what i'm most comfortable in and that is what matters...my sense of style is what it is .."MINE".....and linda's sense of style is "HERS"...

for me, i consciously decided to add some colour cos i found out whenever i went shopping , i only gravitated towards black...dat being said..linda dear,u could
incorporate some colour into your wardrobe IF U FEEL D NEED...

good to see u had fun in calabar!

HAPPY NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE!!!

I think Linda wants to keep us talking by wearing black all the time. i see you are been hard headed about it, but maybe that's her signature. happy new yr.
