Today on the hustle, BollyLomo works in a bakery where Agege Bread is made. So all our Agege Bread lovers get to see where it comes from.
“To start, you have to arrange and clean the bread pans,” says the boss as he sends Bolly off to start his day’s job
The bread is called Agege Bread because it originated from a place in Lagos called Agege. Everyday in Lagos you can readily find them in the stalls of food vendors, or people hawking them from street to street.
