In a statement by the Akwa Ibom born sensational artist, Ms Perfecta Ekpo, she said that she took part of her lyrics from the Annang Pledge composed by Professor Ezekiel Ette, the Ati Annang USA Chairman and available at the Annang Heritage Preservation website (www.annangheritage.org) .

The song as well as the group will be introduced to the distinguished guests by the Chairman of the USA Chapter Professor Ezekiel Ette who commissioned the work for the special ocassion. ENDS
