Lagos State has a long history of holding Carnivals, particularly on Lagos Island, as a result of historical links with the returnees and their descendants from Brazil, West Indies and Sierra Leone in the late 19th century.
The Lagos Carnival can’t be ignored as the carnival as always proves to be better always with fun in a more energetic pattern.
