Now it has grown to be the biggest carnival celebrated in the Middle Belt (north of Niger), and held in the heart of the Idoma nation at Otukpo, Benue State, Nigeria.

This year, the carnival is being taken notches higher than before with the inclusion of many interesting facets that would make the carnival and Otukpo tourism destination of choice.
