"I want people to enjoy their different cultures at this festival but most importantly, share their various cultures with one another… whether you are from Brazil, Cameroon, Nigeria, Germany, Indonesia, wherever… fell free to share what you hold dear with everyone,"Erma Olierhoek, RATU founder explains to Pulse TV.

"Indonesia has so much culture and diversity and its same here," Miss Indonesia 2014, Maria Rahajeng  explains. "We have a lot of differences in our cultures but at the end of the day, we are one people, we are in one nation and we come to support each other."

Meanwhile, Miss Grand Brazil 2015, Paula Gomes tried to compare the women in Brazil, Indonesia and Cameroon and their beauty regimens: "In Brazil, women love the body healthy fitness. The Indonesian loves her natural beauty and what I see here in Cameroon, the African woman loves to make up and prepare their hair. I like these… For me the African skin is very beautiful."

Speaking about how our cultures could influence our communities, Wanry Wabang  from the Indonesian  Embassy in Abuja told us: "It doesn’t matter where you are from so long as you have the earth, the motivation and the positivity to contribute more to what's happening around you .. cultural product is just one of so many contributions you can give to the society."

RATU Festival also handed out cash prizes to two young rising fashion designers and as well as movies which made the industry top charts in 2015. There were also performances from singers Neglect, Marcellia Lesar, Yuh Chris and many more.
