“That being said, it goes without saying that none of the lofty goals of this event can be achieved without the contribution of our esteemed sponsors. Kayokayo, in its fundamental essence, resonates teamwork, unity, and togetherness.
“It would require collective efforts towards ensuring that this year’s event delivers on the philosophy of the festival. This is why we have every expectation that you will once again step up to the plate to help us deliver yet another memorable Kayokayo experience.
“Please save the date and be part of the program and conscientious effort to rewrite, recalibrate and project the potential of our community from the prism of our culture,” the statement read.
Having lifted the veil of the festival, revealing a grand celebration that will captivate hearts and souls alike, with bated breath, the entire Epe kingdom embarks upon a journey of cultural splendor and enchantment, guided by the regal hand of the highly revered Olu-Epe, HRM Oba Dr. Shefiu Adewale.
