The two-day festival graced by Yemi Solade, Shola Kosoko, Saheed Balogun, and Lizzy Da-silva who are brand ambassadors to some of the exhibitors, attracted property buyers who enjoyed discounted deals from the exhibitors.
Each day of the festival saw participants with a genuine interest in the real estate market, asking questions and participating in the fun activities like face painting, bouncy castle, and the raffle draw.
