Lagos dominates Nigerian corner at Notting Hill Carnival

The Nigerian corner at the annual Notting Hill Carnival in London has received a boost this year.

This followed  a huge presence of celebrity artistes who have been promoting the Lagos brand through a variety of shows that have endeared several visitors to Adela Street, where the Nigerian corner is located.

Although the show started on Saturday, it became more enthralling on Sunday as the Nigerian corner is billed to transform to Lagos Corner, courtesy of the Lagos branding campaign that has taken the city of London by storm in the last two days.

The series of entertainment events also feature star actress, Funke Akindele, who mounted the stage for the first time as Mrs. Bello.

Promoter of the Lagos Corner, Ayo Sonaiya said that the event coincides with the Notting Hill Carnival’s 50th edition.

“We are happy that at a time that Lagos State is counting down to its 50th anniversary, the administration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode is using the huge platform of Notting Hill Carnival, which is also celebrating its 50th edition this year to reach out to millions of Nigerians and Lagosians in particular about the emerging powerful brand that Lagos has become in the areas of arts and entertainment and in connecting with the Diaspora about the great things being recorded in Lagos,” he said.

The Lagos Corner will provide a veritable platform for performing artistes from Nigeria to showcase their talents and further give verve to brand Lagos as the home of creativity.
