Hi, what are you looking for?



Nothing but euphoria will witness the maiden edition of The Naija Pepper soup Festival as top Nigerian entertainers are set to make December 14th a day that will  forever linger and remains memorable.

First of its kind, The Naija Pepper soup Festival was conceptualized to bring about the lost memory of that special cuisine discovered and first prepared in West Africa even when some people believe it’s of foreign origin. The Naija Pepper soup Festival however is a celebration of culture using food {Pepper Soup} as a common denominator. The festival features varieties of Nigerian Pepper Soup and the major accompaniments of a Pepper Soup experience drinks and music.

Tagged ‘Ibadan Invasion’, the maiden edition which has been endorsed by Oyo State Government will hold on 14th December 2019 at Agodi Gardens and put together by Portyer.

In his speech during a courtesy visit to his office, the Honourable Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Hon Wasiu Olatunbosun applauded the entire team for bringing out such unique concept.

“All I have been seeing here is Amala festival, Pounded Yam galore and so on, celebrating pepper soup seems and looks very unique to me and I believe so it will to other people, it’s a welcome idea and we can’t but give it the needed support”.

However, the brain behind the festival, Mr. Rotiwa Arowa, CEO Portyer Event said “It’s an experience no one can afford to miss, a special experience and the first where over 50 cooks will be on ground to prepare different kinds of pepper soups for people to consume, this is one area that has not been explored and another huge potential for tourism attraction. it will also go alongside music and entertainment as top and popular Nigerian singers like Obesere, Eedris Abdulkareem, Adex of Artquake, Klever Jay etc will be on stand to thrill guests”.

When asked why the choice of Ibadan as the venue for the maiden edition, “ Ibadan is the political capital of Yorubaland and as it is, it is the indigenous capital where event of this magnitude can hold, though plans are on to extend the subsequent editions to other parts of the Naija but we have to start from the cradle.”

Heritage Banks, Adron Homes, Noble FM, Oyo State Government and top media organizations are throwing their weights behind the Naija pepper festival, “Ibadan Invasion”.
