3 July 2011


It was a glorious home-coming for Yeka Onka, winner of the maiden edition of the Nigerian Idol, a music reality TV Show, when Pepsi sponsored her on a three-day visit to her home State, Abia last week.

The visit saw her meeting with 'Who-Is-Who' in Abia State including the State Governor, Chief Theodore Orji, the Speaker of the House of Assembly and a host of other highly influential citizens. Yeka also paid a visit to Girls High School, Ogbor Hill, Aba, her Alma Mata and some select schools in the State including Girls Senior Secondary School, Abayi, Umuochim, Amuzukwu Girls Senior Secondary School, Umuahia and the Seventh Day Adventist Motherless Home, Aba.

Highly elated Yeka was full of praise for Pepsi for facilitating the visit adding that the State visit really afforded her the opportunity to canvass for the need for productive ventures in all human endeavours by youth in the country.

In her words "It is a big privilege for me to be honoured in my State by my own people. I appreciate the fact that my people are rejoicing with me for emerging the winner of the very first edition of Nigerian Idol. I must however add that Nigerian youth should live their lives to the fullest by ensuring that their talents did not die with them".

She charged the students of the visited schools to strive to be relevant in the society saying "the society is looking for strong people who can change the world for the better. Your steps to this starts now. So, you have to be very obedient to your teachers and learn the rules of obedience because it pays at the end". - News in, about, for Nigeria and Nigerians.
