1. Have Mind-Blowing Fun
If there is one thing we know about the Dubai Girls, it is that they know how to have fun. Followers of their Dubai escapades will testify to this as pictures and videos of their previous visits tell a thousand stories with wide grins and smirks on their faces.
The quartet made their first visit together to the beautiful desert city in 2018 and it was a trip to remember. A year later in 2019, they were off again to Dubai where they had an even more memorable adventure as their time in the city saw them successfully face off against the Chop Life Gang.

If history is anything to go by, the 12 fans who get the chance to go with them are in for the time of their lives. Omoni Oboli certainly feels this way as this is what she had to say about the trip; “You already know the Dubai girls are bringing the heat so come fully prepared to have the fun of your life! My bags are already packed!”

2. Lots of Surprises
No one can hide the fact that you are going to be having mind-blowing fun if you get to visit Dubai with the Dubai Girls. However, much about what is going to go down during the 5-day trip is shrouded in secrecy.
The organizers – Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) have boldly stated that it will be full of suspense and surprises so one can only imagine what that would entail; Swimming with dolphins? Enjoying a day at the waterpark? Embarking on a hot air balloon adventure? Jet Skiing? Skiing on real snow? Riding sand dunes? Who knows.
We are not going to let the cat out of the bag but one thing that we can assure you is that you should expect the unexpected and be ready for many surprises.
3. Meet and Interact with Nollywood Royalty
Chioma Akpotha, Ufuoma McDermott, Uche Jombo, and Omoni Oboli are all household names. They are some of the best Nollywood has had to offer. For many years, the girls have entertained audiences far and wide with their perfect portrayal of the different roles they take on. It is no surprise that they have all been recognized by the top award-giving institutions.
As a result of their talent and achievements, many young ladies and aspiring actresses in Nigeria and Africa as a whole look up to them for inspiration. Having a chance to become a mentee of any one of the actresses will be a career-changing move and this is exactly what going to Dubai with The Dubai Girls can do for you. Be confident in your ability to make an impression and see how things can change in your life while having the time of your life.
4. Get Inspired By The Magnificence of the City of Dubai
More than just a city to travel to for fun or business, Dubai has a way of igniting the fire in you. It will inspire you to dream about the unimaginable and how to make the unthinkable a reality. Take for example the Museum of the Future where you get to have a look beyond the present of what is possible through technological development and innovation.
There are many more wonders spread across the city that did not exist like it is today about two decades ago. It has however since become a magnificent wonder that attracts thousands of visitors.
You would not be the only ones excited about visiting Dubai and getting inspired as some of the Dubai Girls who frankly might have seen it all still get goosebumps and motivated whenever they come around. Speaking about the visit, Ufuoma McDermott said; “Dubai is no longer a city to me. It is an inspiration. Each visit resets my goals and rejuvenates my God given abilities.”

5. Discover the History and Culture of the Emirate
Beyond having fun and making connections, there are a few things to learn when you visit Dubai with the Dubai Girls. Many forget or do not even know that before the oil boom that led to Dubai becoming what it is today – a cosmopolitan city of the future on its way to becoming the global center for finance, leisure, and tourism, it was a fishing village and an important port of call for foreign tradesmen.
Amidst all the varying cultures and technology that make it a dream destination for tourism, the local culture of the emirates is not lost. It is especially so when you visit the local markets and traditional restaurants serving local dishes. All these and more are things you would get to learn if you are part of the lucky twelve.
