Nigeria has set a Guinness World record for being the country with the largest anniversary logo made with cupcakes.


This comes after Lagos state produced 60,000 cupcakes to mark the nation’s 60th Independence Day anniversary on Thursday.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor, said with the development, Lagos has again shown the world that it remains a hub of creativity and innovations.

The governor, who was represented by Oluremi Hamzat, wife of the state deputy governor, said the feat puts Nigeria ahead of Singapore which held the record since 2015 with 30,400 cupcakes.


“I am sure that with this largest cupcakes mosaic today, we have sent a message to the world that Lagos State is a land of creativity and innovations,” he said.

“It is my belief that Lagos State and indeed Nigeria would continue to strive and record greater achievements.


“I call on everyone here today to join hands with our administration to build a Lagos that we would all be proud of.”

On her part, Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf, the commissioner of tourism, arts and culture, said the initiative was aimed at announcing the state’s creative prowess to tourists as well as the international communities.

She also thanked those who made the project a success.

“It is also commendable that we are equally using this event to eye World Guinness Record through the laying of the Largest Cupcake Mosaic in different colors, being the first ever in the world,” she said.


“I appreciate the almost 150 volunteers who came together to make this Largest Cupcakes Mosaic possible as well as the various partners for this event.”
