Media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, has offered fans a trip to Dubai for missing the #AgbadaChallenge at the Merry Men movie premiere on Sunday.
The 36-year-old was conspicuously missing as other male and female celebrities attended the premiere of AY’s new movie in different agbada designs.
His absence took some shine off the event, with many Twitter users disappointed that he was nowhere in sight.
Some even labelled him Amaka after 2face Idibia’s trending song of the same title.

Some personal issues came up which I inevitably had to attend to…
To show how serious I am, I’m currently in talks with @visitdubai_AF so I can travel with some of you to Dubai. I’ll let y’all know the details very soon.
