As part of the continuing efforts by Igbos in the Diaspora to save Igbo Language and Culture a new Igbo Pageant has been introduced.The new “Nwanyimanaria Ibeya na elu uwa” (Miss Igbo Universe Pageant) will be staged at the Holiday Inn Express Atlanta Airport on October 26, 2019 from 5pm to 1am (See enclosed Flyer for details)
Among some of the duties of the winners of the Pageant includes travelling to different Igbo events and speaking to the issue of the demise of Igbo Language and Culture, encouraging Igbos to teach their children Igbo Language and to speak in Igbo Language all the time when communicating with their fellow Igbo brothers and sisters.
