Everything You Need to Know About The Amala Hangout in Ibadan

Let’s talk a little about Amala, Ewedu and Gbegiri. An amazing nutritious indigenous delicacy of Western Nigeria (Yorubas).

Nigeria has 250 ethnic groups, yet, Amala has found its way to unite them all irrespective of where the people are from.

In Mega Cities like Lagos, Abuja, and Port Harcourt, Amala is not considered as a meal for a particular tribe. Everyone enjoys the meal whenever they feel like.

In other cities across the country, Amala has gained popularity also.  
Due to its much-gained popularity across the Nation, it has become a common feature on menu lists in parties, trendy restaurants and even in social gatherings.

The ability of Amala, Ewedu, and Gbegiri (The Trinity) to unite people of different tribes and culture has been proved by RareAlaka Empire through her hangout tagged: The Amala Hangout.

The Amala Hangout is a community of Amala lovers (irrespective of their Tribe and Culture) coming together to celebrate the culinary heritage, using amala as the focal point.

The first outreach was on the 23rd of March 2019, with about 50 guests. The success of the first reflects in the second hangout on July 6, 2019. Over 250 (a 400% increase) Amala lovers showed up from different part of the country.

The Success Story Continues, and we want you to be part of it...

The last Amala Hangout of the Year (2019) is scheduled to hold on the 30th of November, 2019 at the National Museum of Unity, Alesinloye Ibadan

The choice of venue is to infuse the culinary heritage with the cultural heritage. Which is a way of bringing people together to learn about the history of the land over a plate of Amala (I mean, Amala originated from Oyo State).

Events for the day will include but not limited to games, music, comedy, dance, amala, an exhibition of vendors products, networking and so much more.

In addition, we will also increase our Mental Health awareness, which is a timely topic as the increase in depression and the suicide rate has become alarming among youths.
