As the city of Ekid a.k.a Eket Local Government Area In Akwa Ibom State prepares for it’s annual Carnival, Rhodies World takes a peek into the pretty life of the reigning/outgoing queen, Miss Jane Ekanem. Known for her fervent optimism and drive for modeling and entertainment, Miss Jane is a multi-talented stunner with singing, dancing and acting in her kitty of abilities.

Born twenty something years ago, Jane grew surrounded by a family of 6 siblings with parents she’s proud of and easily swanks about. She savours memories of going out with her dad to a beach, the Qua river bank, picnics, eateries and all.

It’s no surprise to her where she is now as she grew up believing she will model and govern the beauty world as queen. Says Jane; “ I remember always telling people that I’m going to be a world class model when I grow up and I’m glad I’m not losing track of that”. In pursuit of this childhood dream, the 34-27-36 beauty has already contested for Miss Heritage Polytechnic and Face of Splash; she went home with the Miss Heritage crown.

Her reign as Miss Ekid Carnival queen has held positives for Jane. She insists that she has learnt to be patience with people, learnt to look good at every event, to keep her composure as a leader through good or bad and to have faith in herself.


Though a stylish person, who could be mis-read to be cosmopolitan, Miss Jane maintains good representation of her nativity with her undying love and support for the Ekid and Ibibio culture, language, cuisines, music and traditions. This however doesn’t take away the lady nature in her, whose favourite colour is pink and whose favourite movie is Vampire Diaries.
As key rep for the Eket Carnival Queen pageantry, Miss Jane promises that this edition will be much more fun than ever with “an added touch of excitement”.

Her job will be a tough one for whoever wears the crown after her, yet Jane sweetly assures the next lady to be crowned queen a reign full of adventure and pleasant surprises.
