Lagos puts Nigeria on world record with 60,000 cupcakes mosaic
Lagos State on Thursday put Nigeria on the world record by celebrating the 60th Independence Anniversary with 60,000 cupcakes.

The state produced the largest anniversary logo in the world, made with cupcakes mosaic.

The initiative by the Lagos State Government in conjunction with Fly Africa aimed to put Nigeria in the Guinness Book of World Record as holder of the world’s largest anniversary logo made with cupcakes mosaic in the world.

Speaking at the event held at Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu noted that the state through the laying of the largest cupcakes mosaic, has sent a message to the world that it remained a land of creativity and innovations.

Sanwo-Olu, who was represented by the wife of the State Deputy Governor, Oluremi Hamzat, at the event monitored by officials of the Guinness World Records, said the last largest cupcakes in the world was a 30,400 cupcakes made in Singapore in 2015.

He said: “I am sure that with this largest cupcakes mosaic today, we have sent a message to the world that Lagos State is a land of creativity and innovations.

“It is my belief that Lagos State and indeed Nigeria would continue to strive and record greater achievements.

“I call on everyone here today to join hands with our administration to build a Lagos that we will all be proud of.”

The governor commended all the founding fathers of Nigeria, independence icons and those who had worked tirelessly to ensure that Nigeria remained a united nation.

The Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf, said the world’s largest anniversary logo made with cupcakes mosaic was very unique to Lagos being the trailblazer in every lofty initiative.

Akinbile-Yussuf said the government, through the event, was putting itself before the international community, especially tourists, to see what the state could offer in terms of breaking new grounds and in creativity.

She said the relevance of Lagos State in Nigeria could not be undermined as the state had been channeling its efforts into activities that had strengthened the nation economically, culturally and socially.

According to her, Lagos State has been serving as the melting pot for Nigeria’s tradition and culture.

She said: “The coming together of Fly Africa and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture for this event, which is one of its kinds in the history of this nation, underscores Lagos’ rich attractions that have earned the nation a global voice and respect across the continent.

“It is also commendable that we are equally using this event to eye Guinness World Record through the laying of the Largest Cupcake Mosaic in different colours, being the first ever in the world.

“I appreciate the almost 150 volunteers who came together to make this Largest Cupcakes Mosaic possible, as well as the various partners for this event.”
