Many Nigerian societies have a rich tradition of masquerades. Masquerades are a symbol of culture and customs. They are normally portrayed in colorful robes accompanied by traditional dancers or music. The masks adorned are determined by tradition and beliefs.

Due to COVID-19, we have postponed the 2nd Edition of the Exhibition highlighting the 60th Anniversary of Nigeria's Independence until next year in 2021. It will host the launch of Who's Who Diaspora: The Nigerian Story 2nd Edition and be unique in nature representing key tribal groups from Nigeria. Come experience Culture!
