Photos From Calabar International Carnival 2012

Published

on

The 2012 edition of one of Africa’s biggest street carnivals, the Calabar International Carnival, lived up to expectations as it attracted more foreign tourists who visited Calabar for the carnival.

It is gradually matching up to the standard big carnivals like the Nottinghill Carnival in the UK and the Rio Carnival in Brazil have set.

Even with absence of the ailing governor of the state, Liyel Imoke, the carnival didn’t fail to hold as the atmosphere around the streets of Calabar was lively. Top Africa’s pay-TV provider, DSTV did a live broadcast of the event. Both local and international media had their reporters covering the carnival.

Brazilian Sampa performed on the stage right before the performance of TRINADAD AND TOBAGO who used drums and acoustics to play many local tunes.

2012 CALABAR INTERNATIONA CARNIVAL is great fun filled event that truly worths all the troubles and roads closed to allow the processions of the entertainers. The carnival was started by Donald Duke, governor of the state between 1999-2007.

    Sum of dz pics r nt d calabar carnival pics…
    Master Blaster is said to be the biggest participant in the calabar carnival. It is reputed to parade about 2,000 performers. The other 4 bands parade an average 1,200 each. So, in total there were about 8,000 performers in the competitive bands. The non competitive bands must have contributed another 1,000; consequently bringing the estimated number of performers to about 9,000.
    We can assume that 50 percent of the performers were female. ie about 4,500.
    My question: why is it that despite this large number of indigenous female participants, it only the pictures of the 10 female guest artistes from brazil that is being posted all over the place as evidence of calabar carnival being only an exercise in female nudity?
    I am merely speaking before we are all bullied into silence by a very vocal and apparently very ascetic group.
