Top rated artists like Olamide, Small Doctor, Lil Kesh, 9ce and Ycee are some of the confirmed A-list artistes billed to perform at The Lagos Street Carnival scheduled to hold on Sunday, 3rd December 2017.
The carnival, which will kick-start the series of entertainment activities at the Centre of Excellence will be held along the stretch of Oba Akran Road, Ikeja.
A press release on Friday by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, stated that the event will feature activities such as colourful carnival processions, outdoor games, kiddies’ play zone, food stalls and a star-studded musical concert.
The statement said the carnival, held as Lagos Street Party in 2016 but has been rebranded and repackaged to serve a much wider purpose to launch the State into a series of activities lined-up to celebrate the yuletide season.
Top Fuji act, Alhaji Sule Alao Malaika and Waka Queen, Alhaja Salawa Abeni as well as top DJs are also in the rich line-up of artists that will entertain at the carnival.
According to the Commissioner, the carnival will attract more than a thousand revellers in colourful costumes and displays in a controlled procession.
“They will flag off and sustain a spectacular parade of colours, dance and showmanship to create a carnival atmosphere that Lagosians always crave at the end of the year,” the Commissioner said.
Although the carnival is being managed by an independent organisation – HEAT Nigeria Limited, in partnership with the Lagos State government, Ayorinde said adequate safety and security measures, as well as seamless traffic management strategy, are in place to ensure users of the designated alternative routes do not experience discomfort as a result of the planned road closures on Oba Akran road and its environs.
The event, as usual, is expected to display the inherent creativity, beauty and energy of Lagosians who are widely celebrated for knowing how to work hard and derive maximum pleasure from entertainment and leisure activities.
The rich culture, food and lifestyle of Lagos will also be experienced by visitors and tourists that are already drawn to the attractions that the Lagosians Street Carnival holds, the Commissioner stated.
