About this event

Nigerian Independence Day is an official national holiday in Nigeria where we celebrate the anniversary of its independence from Great Britain. Nigeria gained independence on October 1st 1960 under the leadership of Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe leading the country to continue on its path of resilience. Choosing the Dominican Republic to host our first ever annual Nigerian Independence Day celebration has stood as symbolic to us for many reasons. The African Diaspora is an expansive and rich source of evidence that culture reigns in the worst of circumstances. With the Trans Atlantic slave trade rummaging through the coasts of west Africa, many of our people were transported to islands all over the Caribbean and the America’s. Pieces of our culture still remain present and vibrant despite being so distant from home. As Nigerians we celebrate this special day out of the year in remembrance that we are all one people and we will forever be connected to home no matter what area of the earth we nest on. We hope that as you enjoy the sequence of surprises and festivities we have planned for you that you will keep our desire for connectivity and culture in mind. Always and forever.
