The last quarters of 2023 have taken interesting turns, especially since the commencement of the 2023 edition of the MTN mPulse Spelling Bee competition for primary and secondary school students between the ages of 9 and 15.
The buzz around the competition skyrocketed following the emergence of last year’s winner, Miss Kate Ene David, a 13-year-old student of Intimacy with Christ Secondary School, who not only won the competition but made history as the first-ever female CEO of the ICT giant, MTN Nigeria.
Before Kate, the competition had seen the rise of two other champions: Snow George and Akinyele Ademoyegun, both of whom have left an indelible mark in history by joining the League of Spelling Bee champions in Nigeria.
