LITTLE MISS DELTA GETS ROYAL BLESSINGS
The Asagba of Asaba, Obi (Prof.) Chike Edozien, has advised reigning Little Miss Delta, Tarebi Guanah, not to be overwhelmed by her early recognition but to see it as challenge in achieving greater feats in future endeavous.
He gave the advice at his palace in Asaba when organisers of the Little Miss Delta Beauty Pageant, Events With Terezze, led winners of the second edition of the competition held in December last year to the palace to solicit royal blessings. Ten-year-old Tarebi Guanah, daughter of Delta State former Commissioner for Lands, Mr. Raymos Guanah, who emerged overall winner, was closely followed by Miss Lovely Odebala (first runner-up) while Miss Karen Isichei was second runner-up.
Asagba congratulated the winners and prayed that the feat would spur them to higher achievements in the near future, even as he commended the organizers, saying that the project of discovering was a worthy cause. 'It is quite an achievement in a state of about three million people. When talents are discovered early in life, they must be encouraged to do more but occasionally early recognition makes children to be overwhelmed and as such would not want to do more. I pray that this early recognition will spur you to greater feats in life,' he said.
He also advised the parents of the young beauty queens to ensure that the early recognition does not distract the children from their educational pursuits. Earlier, the Chief Executive Officer of Events With Terezze, Miss Teresa Eboka told the monarch that the aim of the pageant was to discover little female children and help them actualize their God given talents.
