Top-rated artistes 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.
The colourful carnival, held as Lagos Street Party in 2016 but now rebranded and repackaged to serve a much wider purpose, will 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.
In a press release signed on Friday by the Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde, the event will feature activities like colourful carnival processions, outdoor games, kiddies’ play zone, food stalls and a star-studded musical concert.
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, ” he said.
Although the carnival is being managed by an independent organisation – HEAT Nigeria Limited – in partnership with the Lagos State givernment, Ayorinde said government had put in place adequate security measures and seamless traffic management strategy to ensure safety of the people and to make sure motorists using the designated alternative routes do not experience discomfort as a result of the planned road closures on Oba Akran road and it’s 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 to 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, according to the Lagos State Government.
