Nigerians from the Southeast have an affinity for their place of origin and Christmas celebrations in towns/villages is usually filled with fun and glamor as people travel to celebrate the season with families and loved ones at home.
As the yuletide season takes full swing, people from the South East are in for another big bang as Adazi-Nnukwu town in Anaocha L.G.A of Anambra State, is set to celebrate the 20th Anniversary Celebrations of the annual Harmattan Carnival. Harmattan Carnival is one of Anambra’s biggest social events and is scheduled to hold from 30th December, 2012 to 1st January, 2013. It is a 3-day period of celebrations, laced with music, dance, and performances by musical acts, massive fireworks, traditional bonfire fire dancing and lots more.
One of the organizers (Dynamic Minds League –DML), Derek Ofojekwu said preparations are in top gear to host a spectacular edition of the event.
‘Popular Nigerian Artiste and king of Igbo rap music, Mr. Raw (formerly Nigga Raw), Sortitude, Desperate Diva, Parrot Mouth, Dj Vegas etc are amongst the stars expected to thrill the over 10,000 expected attendees at the 3-day event.’
The Harmattan Carnival 20th Anniversary Celebrations will hold more than just dancing, singing or having fun, it will also celebrate pioneer organizers who through passion instituted the carnival in 1992. It promises to be a unique blend of the modern and old skool tunes creating a platform for returnees (As we say, ‘nataad’ persons) to the South Eastern part of Nigeria during the yuletide season from all over the world to unwind and have fun whilst interacting within the setup of a typical African Carnival. It showcases fantastic fireworks.
In a nut-shell, the Harmattan Carnival is more than an event – it is an EXPERIENCE…….Don’t be left out.
