It was all chills and vibes at the Obi Wali International Cultural Centre in Port Harcourt Rivers State where the 4th edition of the Bole Festival was held. As promised, it was bursting with so much rich African cultural display. The food, the drinks, the play; the connect was all seamless.
The rich Niger Deltan festival which began in 2016 has gradually grown undeniably into one of the biggest festivals in Nigeria with over 6000 attendance this year and with what promises to be more next year.
Bole which is made up of roasted plantain which is crispy at the skin is eaten with roasted yam, charcoal-grilled fish and chicken smacking with a lot of flavours and a great delicious, mouthwatering, never unappetizing oil sauce.
The quality of this slow-cooked peppery marinated dish cannot be found anywhere else in the world except for the city of Port Harcourt.
It wasn’t just the eating that made this event graceful; it was also for the music, the games and the love shared amongst a people. Our taste, our culture.
The Dumebi crooner Rema thrilled the audience with his ever blazing sounds alongside Dandizzy, Dr. Barz and other Port Harcourt based artistes.
Truly, Port Harcourt is a beautiful place.
