Lagos Govt Plans Festival To Showcase Creativity

The Lagos State Government has said the Afropolis festival will serve as an opportunity for youths to showcase their creativity and innovation.

The state Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Toke Benson-Awoyinka, stated this on Wednesday during a town hall meeting held at the John Randle Centre for Yoruba Culture and History, Onikan.

Benson-Awoyinka said, “Afropolis is not just an event scheduled to be held between October 26 and November 3, 2024, it is also a celebration of rich cultural heritage, creativity and innovation. It is a platform where African creatives can come together to showcase their talents, exchange ideas and embark on ground-breaking projects.

“The festival is a testament to the diverse and dynamic spirit of our continent. Lagos, as the host city, is proud to be at the forefront of this cultural revolution.”

Also speaking at the event, the founder of Afropolis, Qudus Onikeku, noted that the festival was being sponsored not only by the state government but also by CcHub and Wema Bank.

“The theme for Afropolis 2024 is ‘We need new myths,’ and the festival will feature musicians, tech creatives, writers, poets, visual artists, filmmakers, fashion designers, animators, and art galleries, among others to generate a synergy within a diverse network of global Africans,” Onikeku added.
