As the Lagos @ 50 celebrations continue, the stage is set for the first edition of Lagos City Suya Carnival which holds on Independence Day, October 1, to wrap up the Lagos @ 50 celebrations.
According to the organizers, the Lagos metropolis will be put on the world map courtesy The Lagos City Suya Carnival as it sets the world record of the longest suya steak with the production of a single 50ft suya. According to the organizers, this is to be achieved in conjunction with the Guinness Book of World Record in Lagos, Nigeria.
Speaking, Kehinde Talabi, said: “We have been working tirelessly behind the curtains in the past few months since we berthed this idea with the full support of the Lagos State Government. Again, we thought about our culinary expertise as Nigerians and found out that one delicacy that could be served as a full meal is Suya. Though Suya doesnt have its origin in Lagos but it would be agreed that Lagosians in particular have an undying penchant for Suya,” Talabi said.
Speaking, Miss Abimbola Otubu, the Coordinator of the event said there were plans to have the carnival replicated in the other climes with Lagos as a major partner and first hosting state. Otubu also called on top organisations to support the carnival as it aims to promote Nigerian culture.
A brain child of Kehinde Talabi, CEO of Suya Stops, the Lagos City Suya Carnival is organised in conjunction with the Lagos State Ministry of Tourism Arts and Culture.
