See pictures below.
According to identified Facebook account “Nsikak Ibatt” who shared the pictures, said the activity was moved by the University of Calabar (UNICAL) students, Malabites and Malabresses, during the induction parade of newly admitted students of the department of Theatre, Film and Carnival Studies. Many students were seen performing lots of cultures as you can see in the pictures. Students were dressed “weirdly” clamouring on the streets.
Here are pictures showing how some sets of Malabites and Malabresses were playing and dancing in front of UNICAL building.
In my opinion, Student Carnival is one of the nice activities that shows how creative and talented students can be, but regarding how things was done, I think the Malabites and Malabresses didn’t get everything right by not maintaining social distance and wearing nose masks. After the poster wrote “Earlier today, Malabites and Malabresses where in disbelief during the induction parade of newly admitted students of the department of Theatre, Film and Carnival Studies, University of Calabar” Some people said, the activity looks demonic and occultic initiation, while some recommended it as good and long time tradition in the University of Calabar.
What do think about this? Would you recommend your child, brother or sister to engage in this activity? Leave a comment below
