Think of class. Think of poise. Think of sophistication. Think of glamour. The 4th of September, 2022 would be a date never forgotten for a while as it was a day where all the above listed elements were in high display.
If you are based in Enugu, or anywhere in the South-Eastern part of Nigeria, the Mr & Miss Diverse Talent (MMDT) South East organized by Israelie Signature Nigeria wouldn’t be news to you. It’s always been an event where quality representation & experience is at its best and this year was no exception.
As usual, the event also featured the annual I.Sig Nigeria Icon Awards (INIA) 2022 & the Special Unveiling of the new INIA Awards statuette. But let’s take it bit by bit, shall we? In this post, we’ll be giving you a brief rundown of the event.
THE GREEN CARPET
As partners of the event, The Green Carpet was presented by Dav-Oz Blog & hosted by DOMI Award winning poet & Dav-Oz Blog Columnist, Mr. Nadic. The Carpet saw a lot of fabulous personalities in spectacular dresses & attire grace it. Among those who shared the Green Carpet with Mr. Nadic were the CEO, Israelie Signature Nigeria & Chief Executive Producer of the Event, Israel Godson; Nollywood Actor & the Vice Chairman, Israelie Signature Nigeria, Don-Larry Eboh; the Director, Miss Humanity Africa & Co-Judge of the event, Ezeani M Jane; CEO, Muhna Empire & Director, Miss Silver Africa, Roseann Munachi; Nollywood Actress & Chief Judge of the Event, Choice Amajuoyi (A.K.A Lolo Igbo) as well as several all the MMDT contestants & a host of other guests who were present to witness the event.
THE NEW INIA STATUETTE UNVEILING
Dare I say that this was one of the most awe filled moments of the event. It began with the amazing Ogochukwu Nworji (CEO, Obebe’s Wellness) dressed in a beautiful tulle ball gown, moving in grandiose steps from the entrance of the hall to the stage, with the veiled award in hand as she strode. Finally, she is gets to the center of the stage with the most beautiful smile you’d ever see while the unveiler, Don-Larry Eboh speaks on about the award. The Award is eventually unveiled with uproarious applauds across the hall. The new award designed by the visioneer, Israel Godson, is a gold elegant female statuette that symbolizes wealth, influence & productivity, which is the basis of an Icon.
MR & MISS DIVERSE TALENT SOUTH EAST
The MMDT took place over the course of the show. The pageantry was like none ever seen as it focused more on the talent of the contestants than their beauty. They exhibited various skills like cooking, acting, dancing & singing. Towards the ending of the event, the results were announced.
Taking home the grand crown & title as Mr & Ms. Diverse Talent South East respectively, were King Jonathan Ogene & Queen Akwue Joy; while in second place, were King Chidiebere Alumona as Mr. Diverse Talent South East Tourism & Queen Mary Clare as Miss Diverse Talent South East Tourism.
THE AWARDS PRESENTATION
Another highlight of the event was the INIA Awards presentation that saw major high & mighty being awarded. Amongst the awardees were, Eboh Ogugua Ruth of BNB Events, Nwebiem Hope Uchenna of Grand Effects & Multimedia 360, Emmanuel Chidera Agbo of The Kings Concept Global Ltd, Chukwuuemeka Okechukwu of Spera in Deo Ltd and a host of other prestigious personalities.
The event was quite successful and breath taking. Major congratulations to the organizers; most especially the vision bearer, Mr. Israel Godson for an exceptional effort in ensuring the best thru the event.
