Food; fashion; fun. Three things when combined, would leave you absolutely satisfied and all three were in excess at Sterling’s Eat and Drink Festival/MBN event.
The 2023 Eat and Drink Festival (EDF) and Made By Nigeria (MBN) event, powered by Sterling Bank, was held on the 27th and 28th of December at the Cricket arena of the Tafawa Balewa Square. The festival was a lively fusion of flavors, a carnival of food, and drinks, and an ode to the incredible creativity and skills of Nigeria. Sponsored by Sterling Bank, this festival was like a global pantry, featuring food from around the world.
From sizzling African dishes to tantalizing Asian bites, European treats, and even some Caribbean delights, the Eat and Drink Festival was a foodie’s dream come true. And hey, we didn’t stop at just food! We had a blast showcasing amazing stuff made in Nigeria by Nigerians.
Think classy clothes, fancy footwear, handmade bags, pleasant perfumes, and yes, even Nigerian beer! It was a proud moment celebrating our homegrown talent.
Sterling also rewarded customers with cash prizes for partaking in various activities like dancing, tongue twisters, and other fun games. Still on giving, WasteBanc rewarded people who swapped their recyclables with amazing gift items. The festival boasted celebrity presence, with influencers such Enioluwa and Harmonie also in attendance to thrill the crowd with some exciting activities.
But hey, it wasn’t just about the grown-ups! We made sure the little ones had a blast too. There was a kid’s cake decoration class, talk about a fun time for all! Sterling kept it family-friendly with games such as puzzles, snakes and ladders, jenga and so much more fun activities.
In essence, the festival became an eloquent expression of Sterling Bank’s dedication to promoting the flavors, craftsmanship, and diversity of Nigeria to the world.Through strategic support and passionate advocacy, Sterling Bank acts as a bridge, connecting the dreams of local businesses with the global marketplace, ensuring that the world not only hears but embraces the incredible story of Made By Nigeria.
