Veteran Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, rang in the New Year from the Emirates city of Dubai.
She shared pictures on Instagram of her posing in front of the Burj Al-Arab, which is tagged as the only 7 Star hotel in the world. She also shared a picture of her swimming with a dolphin…that photo was particularly sweet.
Dubai has become a regular vacation destination for those who live the jet-setting lifestyle. Movie stars, musicians, on-air personalities, entertainment entrepreneurs and fashionistas. Almost everyone heads to Dubai sometime in December and Ini Edo is no exception.
After a near-death experience, when she barely missed being squashed to death by the Church which fell and crushed several people in Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom state, it is no wonder that she took some time to cool off. She shared about the near-miss on her Instagram where she wrote:
2 days ago, I was very bitter about the unreliable nature of some of our airlines cancelling flights without prior notice thereby hindering my plans to attend a church service ceremony held in uyo.Now out of determination, I took a flight to calabar with the hope of being in uyo just in time for the service since the journey between calabar and uyo was just about an hour.The journey ended up taking over 7hrs because of an unexplainable traffic.No accident, good road no hitches just a headlock traffic. Whilst in the car, I started wondering why all my efforts to be at the service was being thwarted… then I got a call, that the entire church building had collapsed during the course of the service …. Once again, God had saved me..
My heart goes out to the families of the departed..may the good Lord grant them the heart to bear the loss.
Everyday we see is a blessing..it’s not because we are special or better..It’s the exceeding Grace of our Lord Jesus.Iam so humbled and grateful to God for preserving me… Happy thanksgiving…..
Ini Edo is also the Special Adviser to the Governor of Akwa Ibom state.
