Francis Ebie, Chief Coordinator of the event, says monitoring and observing the different ways the barbecue festivals are done in different countries of the world, and implementing the best experience, infusing it with our own culture and ways of doing things will make this year’s event even better. One of our major objectives is to nurture this event to international standard, considering the huge tourism potentials this event can attract to the host cities.

The entertainment host, Falz will surely keep people entertained and keep the momentum going during entertainment intervals with his witty personality and endless jokes. You sure are in for a treat.
