July Plantain Lovers Connect in Pictures

On July 13th, 2019  Plantain Lovers in Lagos gathered at The Patio, Ediye Limited, Fola Osibo, Lekki Phase 1 for another exciting edition of Plantain Lovers Connect. 

The event saw Plantain lovers enjoy a variety of plantain dishes, food, games, and drinks. The highlight of the event was the eating competition which saw teams of plantain lovers compete against one another to discover the first team to finish a jar of plantain chips.

The event is part of Dodo Gang's efforts to improve the mental health of its gangsters by creating a fun environment for plantain lovers to relax after the hustle and bustle of the workweek.
