During the visit, Oba Gbadebo commended Seaman’s Schnapps for its steadfast dedication to supporting the Lisabi Festival and preserving the rich heritage of Egba traditions.

The monarch joined in prayer with Seaman’s Schnapps, beseeching for sustained progress in Nigeria and Egbaland, while extending heartfelt wishes for Grand Oak’s management and success across its diverse operations.

The Lisabi Festival, an integral part of the Egba people’s cultural heritage, is celebrated annually in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State, to honour the legendary Lisabi Agbongbo Akala, a renowned hero of the Egba liberation struggle deeply ingrained in Yoruba history.

This festival unites thousands of Egba sons and daughters, as well as tourists from around the world, to commemorate Lisabi’s remarkable legacy and celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the Yoruba people.
