On Friday 28th October 2011, Yola played host to the first-ever Nigerian Homecoming event organized by the students of the American University of Nigeria, Yola. The platform for this exciting occasion was the “Mr and Miss AUN Pageant“.
The competition featured 11 students in display of intelligence and skills, while pacing back and forth the stage to the delight of the crowd and were judged by “Kele Kele Love” songstress Tiwa Savage and Noble Igwe of 360 Nobs.
Also in attendance was the Hip-Hop sstar Sauce Kid.
After deliberation by the judges, Charles Charles and Maryam Awaisu were crowned the 2011 Mr and Miss AUN. Other winners of the night were AUN’s Mr Talent 2011 Moses Obasi and AUN’s Miss Congeniality 2011 Bisola Mohammed.
Chairman of Campus Board Activities Dorsey Spencer came on stage to welcome the audience to Nigeria’s first ever homecoming.
He said “the celebration was worth the excitement in the faces of the crowd, the first homecoming in Nigeria is something to be excited about, it’s the first, and that means a lot, it’s not the second, or third and it’s definitely not going to be the last.” and further that the homecoming not only celebrates AUN graduates, but reflects a culture that shares in the interest of even the current students.
The night ended with commendations for all those involved in organizing the event including the designers, Committee Members and Chairman of Campus Board Activities Dorsey Spencer.
