At the 2014 Annual Walk, enthusiastic Nigerians clad in bright orange shirts turned up in record numbers at Rowe Park Yaba, Lagos on the 12th of July 2014, to participate in the event. The event featured groundbreaking leadership content, amazing conversations, rib-cracking comedy, and great live music by entertainers including; KCEE, Praiz, and Sound Sultan. Professional comics, Tee A and Seyi Law ensured rib-cracking moments, as they put their artistry to work as Masters of Ceremony; while veteran Comedian and voracious reader, Alibaba, engaged the audience on “What was the last book you read?” Captains of the Nigerian business industry, such Larry Izamoje, Joseph Benjamin, Ayo Animashaun, turned up to support the convener, Kolawole Oyeyemi, Founder, Ignite Africa Leadership Foundation, whose message is to ensure that the badly degraded reading culture in the nation is swiftly revived amongst the younger generation.
