According to Ambassador Ladipo ,who spoke with Mindset Media Limited and Gabrio Voice Magazine, said this event is the 4th Annual Yoruba Cultural Exchange Festival 2016 which would be coming up on September 9th-10th in Dallas Texas USA.

It is all about promoting Yoruba culture and other Nigerian cultures in Diaspora. My few years of residing in USA till now and having travelled to other foreign countries, I have discovered that many Nigerians no longer give their children African names to identify their origins anymore

This event is not all about promoting African culture only, but also there is going to be Kegite gyration, workshop, symposium, and awards for people who have achieved in their various careers in life.

He added that my purpose of coming to Nigeria to create cultural awareness on the event. It is not just Yoruba culture to be promoted at the event only but also other cultural heritages of Nigerians like Igbo, Hausa, Igala, Edo and others would be displayed too.

He further stated that Buhari’s government is doing well to override corruption and “No sweat No Sweet”. The era of collecting free money is over. This event is not just for me but to promote Nigeria culture in Diaspora. This event would be taking place at Oduduwa Hall Power Event Centre, 1025 West Pioneer PKWU Grand Prairie Tx 75051, he said.
