Seaman’s Schnapps, Nigeria’s original prayer drink from the stable of Grand Oak Limited, has announced its role as the lead sponsor for the 37th Lisabi Festival. This collaboration underscores Seaman’s unwavering commitment to preserving cultural heritage and supporting community festivities across the nation.

In anticipation of the festival in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, the Seaman’s Schnapps team, led by Marketing Manager, Mr. Gbemileke Lawal; Trade Marketing Manager, Mr. Sylvester Nwanze; and Activation Manager, Mr. Benson Oluwafiropo, paid a courtesy visit to the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, Okukenu IV.

During the visit, which was to extend heartfelt felicitations to the monarch, chiefs, and all indigenes of the historic kingdom in anticipation of the annual celebration, Oba Gbadebo commended Seaman’s Schnapps for its steadfast dedication to supporting the Lisabi festival, and preserving the rich heritage of Egba tradition.

The monarch graciously joined in prayer with Seaman’s Schnapps, beseeching for sustained progress in Nigeria and Egbaland, while extending heartfelt wishes for Grand Oak’s management and success across its diverse operations.

Lawal expressed the company’s excitement as the headline sponsor of this year’s festival, stating, “Seaman’s Schnapps is thrilled to play a pivotal role in this year’s festival, which promises to be a memorable and vibrant occasion. As the original No. 1 prayer drink in Nigeria, Seaman’s Schnapps embodies the essence of cultural celebration and community unity”.

He emphasised that the partnership between Seaman’s Schnapps and the Lisabi festival represents a harmonious blend of tradition and modernity. Through this collaboration, Seaman’s Schnapps aims to showcase Nigeria’s enduring cultural heritage while fostering unity and camaraderie among attendees.

The theme of the 37th Lisabi festival, ‘Encouraging Youth in Agricultural Business: A Panacea to Solving Unemployment in Nigeria’, resonates deeply with Seaman’s Schnapps’ commitment to societal progress and economic empowerment. By supporting initiatives that promote youth participation in agriculture, Seaman’s Schnapps aims to contribute to the collective effort to addressing unemployment challenges in Nigeria and fostering sustainable development.

The Seaman’s Schnapps team also had the privilege of visiting the Olowu of Owu, Oba (Prof.) Saka Matemilola, and the Gbagura Regency Council, where they received royal blessings in return for their felicitations.

At the Olowu’s Palace, Oba Matemilola commended the visiting Seaman’s Schnapps team for its commitment to supporting the cultural aspirations and initiatives of the Owu people.

The Lisabi festival, an integral part of the Egba people’s cultural heritage, is celebrated annually in Abeokuta to honour the legendary Lisabi Agbongbo Akala, a renowned hero of the Egba liberation struggle deeply ingrained in Yoruba history. This festival unites thousands of Egba sons and daughters, as well as tourists from around the world, to commemorate Lisabi’s remarkable legacy and celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the Yoruba people.

Seaman’s Schnapps, revered by royal fathers and elders alike for its premium quality and authentic taste, has been a trusted part of Nigeria’s cultural fabric as the No 1 prayer drink for decades. Committed to celebrating culture, tradition, and community spirit, Seaman’s Schnapps continues to uphold its legacy of excellence across the nation.
