My name is Teedum Nubari and I recently won the title of Mr Nigeria UK 2016. I am from Ogoni in Rivers State, Nigeria. I am a singer, dancer, actor, event host and self-trained presenter.
In March 2014, I took part in my first runway fashion show “KAOS”, where I modelled for fashion houses like New Look, Urban Vintage, Vintage Collections, and that was the green light for me to get into modelling. Since 2014 I have been honoured to grace over 20 runways within and outside London. In November 2014 I took part in my first ever pageant, ‘Mr Africa International’ and did not place anywhere really. After that I modeled for events like the Magnetic Fashion Show, Kwame Koranteng Bespoke Designs, Suffolk Fashion Week and many others. I gained invaluable experience through these events and in 2015 I won Best Runway Model at the “KAOS” fashion show in Norwich.
My major career started in 2016, when I caught the pageant fever again and competed at the Mr African and Caribbean Society on the 4th of April 2016 where I emerged in the Top 4. That didn’t stop me, as I went on to apply for Mr Nigeria UK 2016, and I came back home with the crown. It has been a hell of a journey, and I give all the glory to God. On the 25th of September 2016, I came into record as the New Mr Nigeria UK 2016 after a very tedious and obviously tight competition. Now my project is to bring to fruition the vision of One Nigeria and to pull my nation together with my works.
I want to use this platform to create real awareness of the sad and harsh reality of the happenings in the northern part of Nigeria. Boko Haram is known around the world for kidnapping girls and young women, and separating them from their families. This has taken a massive toll on Nigeria as a nation. It has lead to much sorrow and worry, and has turned the nation upside down. This is where I want to shed light on this dark matter. Due to the terrors of Boko Haram, students have been moved around and schools have been broken down, and as as a result children are missing out on basic educational needs. Therefore I would like to improve these IDP (Internally Displaced People) camps by helping with learning resources, stationery, as well as clothes and non-perishable food. This is where I will require your help, as I want to raise £2000 towards this cause.
It is a privilege to be honoured with this title and all attached benefits. A more profitable way of making it count is to invest my time and resources into serving humanity and giving hope to the hopeless. It is my dream to discover and help to unleash the potentials in young Nigerians especially those who are in Borno State, Nigeria, affected by the activities of the Boko Haram sect, which has rendered millions of people homeless and put a stop to the education of many children and youth of my generation. I intend to use this also to forge an alliance between the south and north. I myself will be in Nigeria and will be visiting the camps in order to offer my training, expertise and encouragement to the young people based there.
Please, I urge you, be a part of this life-changing project that aims to bring life, joy and happiness to Nigeria once again. It may not seem quite big, but every life is important. This can only be achieved through your help. Give. Spread the word. Change a life.
