Grace Ene Anteyi; I Am A Proud Benue Born. I am Benue
My name is Grace Ene Anteyi, C. E. O. of Ageless Modeling and Ushering Agency
Ageless Modeling and Ushering Agency is one of the biggest Ushering agencies in the south – western parts of Nigeria, adding class to events (weddings, cooperate birthdays, burials e.t.c) with our top notch team of beautiful ushers ensuring the proper organisation of events. We also provide models for photoshoots, video shoots and beauty Pageants.
Just like the majority of our Idoma mothers, when I was growing up. My late mum would always insist on keeping everything very organised and in order. She inculcated this habit in me and as I grew older I realised that it had become a part of me and I sought for ways to take this drive to the next level, which birthed the ‘Ageless’ dream.
I love what I do because it places me on a position to touch lives; I have over a hundred ushers and in no time I realised I was lending a helping hand to the unemployment menace in the country (Nigeria), we have a few Benue based musical Artists that we manage too, promoting them in our little ways outside the shores of Benue. And also, I have always dreamed to be one of the numerous putting Benue and her traditions on the map, I’m happy I’m already doing that in the little ways I can and the future is really bright as I even plan to expand.
Benue is a really beautiful, loving and peaceful place, with lots of food, hardworking and cultured people. It’s so saddening that the Fulani herdsmen disaster is threatening the peace of our people. I pray and plead with the state and federal government to save our land from this evil.
To all the Benue people making us proud home and abroad, I use this opportunity to send a shout out. And to the up comers, remember that hardwork beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. The size of where you’re from should not be a limitation, but instead, let it motivate you to let the world know of your root.
