The Lagos state ministry of culture, arts and tourism says it plans to make 50ft suya(roasted steak) to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the state.
Speaking at a press conference on Friday, organisers of the inaugural Lagos Suya Carnival say they have their sights on breaking the Guinness Book of World Record of the longest steak.
The event will be organised by Suya Stops in collaboration with the Lagos state.
“Nowhere better than Lagos and which better way to launch it than the commemoration of the Lagos at 50 celebration with the event rounding it off? Making a 50ft long Suya steak and breaking a record hence putting Lagos state as a whole on the world map isn’t a bad way to launch the event of this magnitude,” Kehinde Talabi, CEO of Suya Stops, said.
Talabi also promised and assured Lagosians of a well-organised spectacle of the event poised to be held annually.
“We have been working tirelessly behind the curtains in the past few months since we berthed this idea and with the full support of the Lagos state government and Akinwumi Ambode, the governor of Lagos through the ministry of arts and culture, we are sure Lagosians and people in Lagos are in for a good ride.”
9ice and Aramide are two of the ambassadors expected to perform at the carnival.
