Speaking with media correspondents and social media influencers at a media briefing on Wednesday, Founder/CEO Ibile Foundation, Henry Balogun announced the decision to create a World Skit Day.
“People all over the world are finding ways to have fun and create laughter in the midst of the many challenges they face daily.”
“Skits have become part of our lives, we have learnt to have fun, laugh with and at ourselves and create a ‘Skit Movement community’. Skits have become medicinal and are helping promote unity, health and wellness through fun. We have therefore set aside the
1st Saturday in August as World Skit Day.”
Lagos is fast becoming the Skit capital of the world and we decided to create a the Skit Movement and “World Skit Day” to promote Lagos and attract the world to Lagos’ growing entertainment industry and boost tourism.
Details of the World Skit Day events are expected to be announced soon and it is expected that countries all over the world will join as a nexus into cultural participation, personal empowerment, cherished moments, human connection and community.
