The results of the just concluded 2022 Carnival Calabar have been announced.
CONVERSEER reports that Odukpani Local Government Area won the Cultural Carnival Parade, while Passion 4 won the Carnival Calabar and South Africa won the International Carnival.
Recall that the Bikers/Cars Parade was discontinued by Governor Ben Ayade following the auto crash that claimed no fewer than 8 lives and injured about 28 others.
Recall that the Cultural Carnival was held on December 26, the Bikers Parade on December 27, Carnival Calabar on December 28 and International Carnival on December 29.
Passion 4 is the most successful competitive band and that justifies why it is called Africa’s most outstanding band by all its adjudicators.
