Many people, especially millennials in and around Lagos flippantly declare that the city was nothing close to ‘summertime’ in 2017. Their convictions are simple, metropolitan cities have a great culture of assembling young and free-spirited individuals to celebrate worthy causes, sometimes just for the fun of it, most times for social good; only a few of those events happened last year and Konamii wasn’t one of them. Konamii Africa – a charity soccer fiesta founded five years ago by Change Africa Foundation has grown to be one of the largest gatherings of young Nigerians. The annual festival brings over 4,000 people annually to network, eat, drink and watch favourite celebrities play the game for a charitable cause.
Currently in its 5th year, the event will hold on the August 5, 2018 at the Campus Mini Stadium, Igbosere, Lagos. CAP also has plans of taking the fiesta to Abuja, Accra and other African cities in coming months.
