The telecommunications company, as expected, had the venue decked in its beautiful greenery, while the various Regberegbes (age grade groups) were resplendent in their colourful attire and majestic performances as they competed for the prizes.

In the competition which was one of the key features of Globacom’s sponsorship of the festival, Egbe Bobasete Okunrin Omooba turned out as the best dressed age grade, while Egbe Bobagunte Okunrin Akile Ijebu and Egbe Bobamayegun Okunrin Asiwaju emerged first and second runners-up in the male category.

In the female category, Egbe Bobagunwa Obinrin Omooba came first with Egbe Bobagunwa Obinrin Asiwaju and Egbe Arobayo Obinrin Akile Ijebu emerging as runners-up, winning the same prizes as their male counterparts.

Earlier in his goodwill message, Globacom Chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga, Jr., stated that Ojude Oba and other age-long festivals in the country have huge potential to promote cultural diversification, national identity, harmony and unity. He also noted that the festivals could foster cultural exchange and showcase Nigeria’s rich heritage to the world.

Dr Adenuga observed that the theme of this year's celebration, UNITY AND HARMONY IN IJEBULAND: THE GIFT OF OJUDE OBA, emphasised the values that the festival had espoused for over a century that it has been in existence.

He added that the festivals also had potential to boost tourism and help in the diversification of the economy which was why the Federal Government and many governments across the globe have placed tourism on top of their development agenda.
