With all the fun done, it was the moment of truth. Nigeria’s true passion was unveiled as Olumide Ajibolade was declared winner over Henrietta with #TeamFootball winning 52% of the votes compared to #TeamFashion’s 48% in the voting outcome by Nigerian via Facebook and SMSs across the nation.

Olumide, shocked by the outcome, broke into prayers as he beamed with joy and called his family to break the news in 6 words “tell them say I don win”, the crowd erupted into laughter and applause.

Uche Onwudiwe, the Marketing Manager of Malta Guinness said “we are glad to have been the umpires in finding Naijas true passion. People have always assumed it was football and really the fashion industry is an exciting one plus they gave a good fight on this one but football came out tops with a narrow margin. However, whichever passion it was, the Malta Guinness brand purpose is all about helping the everyday Nigerians get ready for that big break that is all around us either by nourishing them with goodness and vitality or helping them with rare opportunities like this one”.

Reacting to his win of the grand prize which is a trip to England for a series of training and coaching classes and a sum of two million Naira cash, Olumide said “they say Malta Guinness fuels the passion of Naija, I am a testimony! Our lives are changed forever and I am deeply grateful to Malta Guinness, my team captain Daniel Amokachi, our rival captain Mrs Lanre Da Silva, all other contestants and the almighty God“.

    I mean I love Fashion and I love Football, very much. From the beginning, I thought the way LDA went about it while on Channels TV was inadequate, and I love LDA a lot. If you want the government to support fashion, you can make your points without comparing it to football and then saying “what has football done even as it’s supported by the government”. Nigeria’s team is not as good as it used to be, but you can’t say they’re doing bad, even as they didn’t qualify for AFCON. Football has done a lot, to the society, let me remind you it also takes people out of the ghetto. Needless to say, I’m happy football won. I think LDA and other Nigerian fashion designers can get support for their industry. It’ll have been more ideal if she stated her facts, and mentioned how Nigeria’s fashion industry has grown even without support, and then even mention how supporting the industry will help fashion designers and indeed help the Nigerian economy. My point? People need to learn to make points without bringing another thing/person/organisation down.
    Go Football! Even as a girl, I’m happy. Still love fashion though.

    There’s that ugly red dress again…
    Top and bottom fabrics of Wajes outfit do not flow. This makes me uncomfortable.

    @bellanaija_this is totally not related to the post but I have to bring it up.
    It’s been a long time I saw an article from Arese, kindly bring the feature back because it has been of great benefit. Thanks!
