The Lagos State Government has announced that the winner of Big Brother Naija Season six, Hazel Onou (Whitemoney) and a former housemate of the show, Rebecca Nengi, will attend the 2021 Lagos Food Festival,
The Commissioner for Agriculture, Abisola Olusanya, said 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.”
Olusanya also noted that the festival would boost the economic potential of the state in international 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.
