Anthony Ekwensi, A Nigerian Wins Chinese Language Contest (Pictured) by Nobody: 8:46pm On Aug 06, 2018
A Nigerian student Anthony Ekwensi who took part in the 17th Chinese Bridge Chinese Language Proficiency Competition for Foreign College Students, has been crowned the African champion.

Though a Russian student Ruslan was the overall winner at the event which paraded 152 students from 118 countries, the 21-year old Anambra-born Nigerian, who came fourth in the final competition, made it to the last round of the championship with four other contestants who were also crowned champion of their respective continents.

The other winners were Theodore Joseph from Australia who came second, Guan Huimin from Indonesia, who took the third position and John Gardner from the United States, who placed fifth.

NAN reported that the grand finale of the competition took place on August 4 in Changsha, Hunan Province. In an interview with the News platform correspondent, the Nigerian student who is a final year student of Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK), Awka, Anambra State, said he looked forward to returning to China to pursue a post-graduate programme.

‘‘I went into the competition because I knew there was an opportunity to do something great, and also I wanted an opportunity to visit the country I’ve always dreamed of going.

‘‘My next plan now is to graduate successfully from UNIZIK and then come back to China for masters. I dedicate my award to God,’’ the final year student of Education Management and Policy said.

Before the competition, Ekwensi learnt Chinese language in Nigeria for two years at the Confucius Institute, UNIZIK, Awka. According to the organisers, the final competition consisted of three parts and tested the finalists’ language skills and all-around abilities, including their knowledge of Chinese culture, history, traditions and communication, as well as their singing and acting skills. All five winners of the language competition, have been offered full scholarships by the Confucius Institute.

This is very nice, applause to the guy. Meanwhile there's another Nigerian boy who's making wave in the comedy Industry with the Chinese language. His name is Ibrahim aka Ibrolee. He made a parody of the popular "This is America" and he tagged it "This is China". Watch below

Igbo know how to accept a different culture whole heartedly. That is why there is an Igbo man who is an Italian senator today. Yoruba think there is something special about Lagos drawing Igbo there and it makes me laugh. Give us another economic hub in the south south or south east and watch Igbo people leave Lagos en masse

One thing about naijans, is that when determined above the sky is the limit. We are too intelligent to be okay with running the country too foolishly. I wished we were at the levels of the countries that came 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th.
