Nollywood star Omoni Oboli has described Dubai as a special place, explaining that she is always excited visiting the tourist haven.

“Dubai is new every time you come; that’s what is so special about Dubai. So you never feel like you’ve seen it all, you never feel like, ‘oh! I have been to Dubai before,” the screen goddess told a group of visiting African journalists, among them News Express Nigeria Publisher Isaac Umunna.

Speaking at a media interaction on Tuesday, September 6, at at Jumeirah Emirates Towers, the delectable actress, one of the four Nollywood divas known as Dubai Girls – the others being Chioma Akpotha, Ufuoma McDermott and Uche Jombo – disclosed that she has been to Dubai “like maybe six times.” “But,” according to her, “every time it’s time to come back to Dubai I’m so excited because, first of all, I know there’s going to be something new, there’s always something new, like if you leave Dubai for like six months you come back, and there’s one building that didn’t exist before. There is just some fun place that never existed before, right?”

Omoni added that “there’s something for everyone; that’s what is so special about this place. So if your kids are two or three they’ll find something amazing that they are going to do. If your kids are – you know, late teens like my kids – there is something for everybody. If you are an adult, even grandparents, you know, it’s just – it’s a home for everyone. So you feel like you can see the world through the eyes of Dubai.”

According to Omoni, “Every single part of the world you can find it here. You come to one destination and it’s just like you’ve been to Europe, you’ve been to North America, you’ve been to Asia, you’ve been to all this other continent just in one place, you know.”

Continuing, she said: “What I also love about Dubai is the fact that there is a blend, so you don’t feel like you are not at home. So you are in Africa and you come to Dubai you feel very much at home; right? You are in Asia and you come to Dubai you feel very much at home. You are in America and you come to Dubai you feel very much at home.”

Yet another attraction: “The cuisine – I like food so the cuisine is amazing; it’s so multi-cultural like how are you in one place and you can eat cuisine from all over the world. There are no words when it comes to describing Dubai. It’s just amazing. For me Dubai is going to always be home, always.”  

News Express reports that Omoni and her fellow Dubai Girls were in Dubai to give this year’s winners of the ‘Stay More Pay Less’ Dubai Promo a treat of a lifetime.

The trip which began on September 6 was the third by the beautiful quartet after previous ones in 2018 and 2019. They had during a scheduled live Instagram session selected lucky winners from all over Africa to join them to explore the never-ending splendor of Dubai this time around.

Winners of the promo get a round trip economy flight ticket, five nights’ accommodation, meals, entry permit, airport transfer, and Dubai Girls’, specially selected activities.

Lots of fans from across Africa and beyond have been taking advantage of the ‘Stay More Pay Less’ Promo, which gives travelers who pay for either three or five nights in selected hotels in Dubai two extra nights free.
