Founded by Prince Edwin Ochai, the carnival is a non-profit endeavour inspired by a common desire amongst organizers and volunteers to globally project the Idoma cultural heritage, as well as showcase investment opportunities inherent in Benue State.

Speaking at the organization's last quarterly meeting, the President—Prince Edwin Ochai—announced the successful conclusion of core arrangements for the carnival; adding that the organization is however open to more partnerships.
