The homes felt so much love and happiness as they enjoyed the celebrity performances and charitable donations. Some of the children from different homes all took turns to give ‘star’ performances in dancing, singing and the likes.
When asked how he felt Uti Nwachukwu said, “I feel so blessed, I am so happy that God has used me as a platform to continue to care for victims of the society. It is Christmas time and it is a season to be thankful. This is my own way of saying thank you to God for such a wonderful and successful year. It has been the best career year and personal emancipation for me. Uti Leads The Stars was revisited and I feel honored that some of my friends came through for me. Thank you so much guys. To all our sponsors, my mentor in South Africa, the students who sent their widows mite, and finally to the wonderful women that run the Uti Fan Club (UFC), words cannot express my gratitude, I am totally honored and I pray that you all harvest in 100 folds the seeds you have all sown.”
