The Lagos State Government has announced that Hazel Onou (Whitemoney), the winner of Big Brother Naija Season 6, and Rebecca Nengi, a former housemate of the show, will attend the 2021 Lagos Food Festival.
Abisola Olusanya, the Agriculture Commissioner, stated this in a statement on Monday.
She said, “The Lagos Food Festival is an offshoot of the annual Seafood Festival which was held between the year 2012 to 2020, where the state celebrates its seafood varieties spiced up with other exciting activities.
“Big Brother Naija Whitemoney and Nengi will attend the 2021 Lagos Food Festival, which will hold on Sunday, December 12 at the Muri-Okunola Park, Victoria Island, Lagos.”
Meanwhile, Olusanya pointed out that food program will improve the economic potential of the state in global markets.
“The festival will project the various food offerings from the diverse socio-cultural groups in the state to the local and international markets.
“Although Lagos is a major player in the fisheries value chain, cognisance is being taken off the other agricultural value chains where the state has a strong comparative and competitive advantage,” she said.
