First Naija Peppersoup Festival Holds December 14


The ancient city of Ibadan will be alive on December 14th as prominent Nigeriana musicians will storm the city for the Naija Pepper soup Festival.

Honourable Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Hon Wasiu Olatunbosun applauded the entire team for bringing out such unique concept, We’ve been discussing  Amala festival, Pounded Yam galore and so on, but  celebrating pepper soup seems and looks very unique to me and it’s a welcome idea and we can’t but give it the needed support”.

Mr. Rotiwa Arowa, CEO Portyer Event and the initiator of the  Naija Peppersoup festival  while speaking on the event said  “It’s an experience no one can afford to miss, a special experience and the first where over 50 cooks will be on ground to prepare different kinds of pepper soups for people to consume, this is one area that has not been explored and another huge potential for tourism attraction. it will also go alongside music and entertainment as top and popular Nigerian singers like Obesere, Eedris Abdulkareem, Adex of Artquake, Klever Jay etc will be on stand to thrill guests”.
