THE MISS ANAMBRA SAGA ;A PLOT TO PAINT ANAMBRA STATE BLACK?
Our society and the judgmental syndrome , so many are waiting to dissociate them selves from the 2015 Miss Anambra beauty queen, Miss Chidinma Okeke and the pageant organizers Anambra Broadcasting Service,ABS, but where would that get us ?Have we bothered to thread carefully to ponder on these scenarios?. 1 .Who was behind the video? 2. Can we believe Chidinmas stories after initially denying the video was shopped ?,Who is threatening to kill the pageant winner?3.was this video acted under duress ?4.why is the queen hesitant to name names ? 5. Has the desired effect been achieved or are we being taken for a ride here as gullible audiences? .The persons that has the answers to all our questions is no other than Chidinma Okeke and her alleged PA . Homosexuality is bad ,first,lets call a spade a spade.Our culture and our norms abhor it. Whatever led to the video should be condemned in its entirety . But what is the catch ? is this aimed at bringing the government into disrepute? Anambra is known for its new ventures into massive agriculture both mechanized and at subsistence levels even there is gist of aerial maintenance of farmlands in Anambra State .Anambra state is also noted for a new reputation for its tourism ,economy and political stability , what is the impact of the video at this tumultuous electoral period ? is it a masterstroke to undermine the serving government? or a plan to portray Igbo people on the negative side, is this aimed at making caricature of the achievements of the state politically ?.The state actually meant rice and vegetable products mostly ,don’t remember cucumber as one of the Agricultural products Anambra is famous for .Well this is the action of one individual and not as these blackmailers, whomever they are ,want the world to believe . Nigerian Pageants are free of Morleys magic ,and are rated by highly qualified industry players . But what should be under the radar is ,what just happened ?Chidinma , tell us the truth . Dragging the name of Individuals who have done nothing ,but be good citizens doing their jobs as dedicated Anambra broadcasting Service staff, is just pitiable . Rushing to take sides on an issue like this is not just hasty , but portrays us as no different than jungle justice mobsters. Lets judge ourselves, even if that young woman is guilty, does it seem as if the parents sent her on such an inglorious mission? .Most pageants frowns at nudity of recent , most pageants are reverting to non swim suits on the run way ,meaning bikinis are not popular anymore .Yet Chidinmas misfortune recorded huge searches for part 3 of the videos!!! oh she did wrong ,but what is the crowd rushing to watch ? this is hypocrisy. Modelling is a big industry worldwide ,trying to cast aspersions or ridicule models as loose people is unsavory . Pageants would always be there , one bad apple does not mean all models are bad people . Pageantry dates back to the bible in esther 2 1-18 and is in the culture of most ethnic nationalities,where the king calls out for a display of all nubile brides in the community. Cultural pageants are on the increase since 2005 , we owe our children and the generations yet to be borne a duty to only condemn as guilty those who are guilty and exonerate the guiltless .Jesus Christ suffered on the cross because a mob wanted him crucified . First , as events unfold we would know which story is the true one . Was that video scripted at gun point?Was she blackmailed? by whom and for what purpose .Lets get the real stories and not point fingers at innocent people that may be mere onlookers . By the way stop watching out for part 3 . www.adandiigbo.blogspot.com
