In the year 2014 the whole of Benue particularly the Benue south senatorial district stood still from the 23rd -25th December as the street came alive with one of the best things to happen in Idoma land. Agila Social & Economic carnival is a dream birthed by one of Idoma’s illustrious sons Prince Edwin Ochai.
The streets came alive with bright colours as people from all over the world came to enjoy Idoma’s rich culture while also displaying their own culture. It was a sight to behold even as the airwaves have been buzzing about last year’s event till now.
This year, Agila Carnival is back, bigger and better than last year with more exciting and entertaining activities some of which are local wrestling, Children Carnival, Cooking competition, Folk tales, Face Of Idoma beauty pageant and so much more.
Music is thrilling but when mixed with culture it produces a clear statement. At Agila carnival 2015 there will be a clear statement of music and culture rolled out in style. The best DJs, the hottest dance squads, the clashing turntables, the biggest masquerades and the finest, most decent and cultured Idoma damsels will hit the run way for the Face of Idoma crown. Counting days to go, start preparing for the biggest street party of the year and don’t forget that Terry G will be live on ground to burn down the stage…. Thinking December? Then think Otukpo, think Apa Agila. Come let’s party. Free carnival mask & beer.
