Osun to immortalise Susanne Wenger, others…

OSUN State government has concluded arrangements to immortalise late German cultural icon, Mrs. Susanne Wenger and others who have contributed significantly to the development of arts and culture in the state.


The state government said it will put in place a hall of fame to immortalise both living and dead cultural icons for their various contributions to cultural development in the state.

Chairman, Osun State Tourism Board, Mr. Abimbola Daniyan at a press conference in Osogbo yesterday also explained why the state government has committed huge sum of money to tourism development in the state.

Special Adviser to Governor Rauf Aregbesola on Culture and Tourism, Mr. Oladipo Soyode stated that artistes who are traceable to the state would be included in the state’s hall of fame.

He said though Susanne Wenger who died about four years ago has not had any monument named after her, the state government has always been celebrating her during the annual Osun Osogbo festival.
