Lagos City Suya Carnival
When: October 1, 2017
Where: Obafalabi Street, Ikeja, 100121 Nigeria
The idea was borne out of the need to celebrate Africa, Nigeria and most especially our Lagos using one of the chops that has become a household name across metropolis over several years.
Suya, as we all know, didn’t originate from Lagos but you will all agree with me that the average Lagos street or road has one Suya joint or a nearby Suya Mallam joint just few streets away. Such is the love we have shown this delicacy that has seemingly become part and parcel of Lagos.
Making a 50ft long Suya steak and breaking a record hence putting Lagos state as a whole on the world map isn’t a bad way to launch the event of this magnitude.
