Olokun Festival, a celebration of the rich cultural heritage of the Yoruba, most especially the Olokun, is a two-day event holding between August 27, and August 28, at The Monarch Event Centre, Lekki, and a mass celebration at Lagos Beach respectively.
Speaking at a press briefing in Lagos, convener Yeye Lara Fashola-Fanimokun said the Olokun Festival is a celebration of our culture and spirituality as Yoruba.
“Olokun is the parent of Aje, the deity of healing, wealth, and blessings. Olokun is revered as ruler of all bodies of water and has authority over other water deities. It is popular among people of Yoruba and Benin descent,” she said.
Fanimokun said as law-abiding citizens, COVID-19 protocols will be observed.
