A six-year-old girl has impressed hundreds of students of the University of Benin (UniBen) with insightful songs at a Christmas carol.
The event was organised by the office of the vice president, Pharmaceutical Association of Nigerian Students (PANS), Faculty of Pharmacy, Courage Omoregbe. The competition was meant to promote the creative skills of students.
Gracious Enosetale Tafamel, a keyboard player, enticed the audience after rendering songs by cleverly using the keyboard. The young singer was given a standing ovation at the event.
Speaking on the topic, ‘sexual purity,’ Dr. Patrick Igbinaduwa stated that even if the Christmas celebration was to recognise the birth of Jesus Christ, many still sabotaged its essence “to commit all sorts of lewdness.’’
He therefore advised pharmacy students to use the opportunity to preach love.
“Many persons sell themselves very cheaply during the Christmas celebration. This is wrong. Thank God for an event like this. As you all go home, instead of being partakers of lasciviousness, try to reach out to the poor man in the street, try to put a smile on the faces of the destitute because that is what Christ would do if he was here,” he said. There was also a drama presentation at the event. The 500-Level class choir was announced the winner of the singing competition and were given free classroom fittings.
Vice President Omoregbe thanked Tafamel and the 500-Level class for their exceptional abilities.
