The Lagos Eyo gives good meaning to the words, festival and spectacle. The only Eyo that is not part of a group is the most senior Eyo-Adimu Orisa. Only a very old and spiritually advanced male can robe as the Adimu. It was rendered as a wedding present when the Oba of Lagos married an Ijebu princess. It is however, a taboo to either wear the Eyo costume overnight or cross any body of water, such as the Lagoon, Rivers, and so on. The Eyo festival is organized under the auspices of the Yoruba tradition, as well as social organizations or clubs.

It is an outlet used to showcase the culture of the Isale Eko people, since it can be organized for special occasions apart from the death of prominent chiefs, elders, or installation of a new Oba. It can be used to entertain at special state functions or occasions.

    Annual Tour

    Noha would follow the disappearing reindeer and mammoths to the east. Will his people, the Eyo, children of the Giant Reindeer, listen and follow him? Che, too, has a dream. She would follow Noha as his mate. But not as a mindless beast of burden, mother of cubs, warmer of the sleeping place, and obedient child. She would be as a hunter, free to kill for meat, explore the unknown lands, challenge the beasts of the Endless Lake, and give the desires of her artist's heart fruition.
