GOSPEL OF BUKA FOOD ACCORDING TO SAMI
Ofada rice, amala, semo, ewa aganyin, ofe nsala, banga soup, egusi soup, efo riro, name it… it was simply a harvest of local African delicacies served hot and fresh by top food vendors in the city of Lagos when Sickle Cell Advocacy and Management Initiative (SAMI) had her first Buka Festival in the warm ambiance of Ndubuisi Kanu Park, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.
Not limited to food alone, the event was a good opportunity to create awareness, engage the public, meet friends, support charity and make an impact. It also included fun activities such as games, comedy, and music.
Many members of the team of the favourite radio show, Touch a Cell with Toyin and the Gang, like Sheggun a.k.a. Baba Shukura, Mabel a.k.a. Bororo, Josh a.k.a. Jossydeks of Eko FM were also on hand to give glamour to the event.
Held on Sunday, 29th September, the fun-filled event rounded up the several awareness activities in the month of September known globally as Sickle Cell Awareness Month.
