Nigeria’s leading luxury hospitality brand, R.S.V.P, is set to host Lagos to its second edition of African Heritage Week this February.
Following the success of its first edition, R.S.V.P has created a month-long celebration of modern reimagined versions of African culture. African Heritage Week will feature five distinct interactive exhibitions in Cuisine, Art and Music. These collaborations aim at projecting the relationship between fine dining, music, arts and how each of them has played dynamic roles in Africa’s heritage, individually and collectively.
Kicking off the month-long celebration will be a series of carefully curated and commissioned art installations within R.S.V.P’s restaurant by the online art platform ARTOJA, graphic artist, Omoligho Udenta and sculptor, Obinna Makata. Guests will continue to enjoy the renowned food menu and cocktail list along with this rare interactive experience.
The month culminates in a Kitchen Takeover by Chef Kwame Onwuachi; a celebrated US-based Jamaican/Nigerian chef who is bringing a unique twist on African Heritage to dinners and guest on Saturday, February 24th.
Also taking place will be ‘NAGO’, a soundscape and poolside party hosted by contemporary DJ and Artist, AYE!
