Since its inception, the kayokayo festival has become a veritable platform to promote the local economy, address some of the socio-economic challenges of the community and most significantly, propagate our rich cultural heritage.

The will be held for four days, beginning on September 8, with a medley of lineup activities.

Highlights of the event include a Royal visit to Olu-Epe, the Tahjud night, Jummat Service, an Annual prayer at the palace, as well as a Drama performance at the Epe theatre, and of course, the Lighting of Etufu by Olu Epe of Epe kingdom.

This year’s Kayokayo, despite its suppressed design, is expected to draw first-class dignitaries across Lagos State while also ameliorating the socio-economic and religious-cultural landscape of the Epe Division.
