As part of activities marking the end of year Christmas festival tagged Ukapisua, the Akwa Ibom State ministry of Culture and tourism will on 26th December host a street party/Carnival tagged “Street Groove”. The event will see five bands traversing and partying along the streets of Uyo.
Earlier today, the honourable commissioner for culture and tourism named the five bands to include:
