Osogbo is a relatively quite city, in the Southwestern region of Nigeria. It is dominated by the Yoruba ethnic group and the two prominent spoken languages in the city is the local Yoruba dialect and the English language. It is blessed with a serene environment.

Unlike most state capitals in this country, you should be prepared with the knowledge that it is not as busy with activities as they are. However, you can be sure you won’t be disappointed as it and a whole lot of fun to cover up for its lapses in other areas.

It is the capital of the state and quite frankly, a lot more peaceful than most state capitals you’ll find in the country. Not much is to be expected of business activities but one should be able to get by with daily required activities and funding. It is a great place if you are willing to adapt.

Choose a well ventilated area. Be ready to buy lamps because electricity is not really reliable. He or she must be ready to spend because there are much fun like tourist center, parks, zoo, etc. Depending on which country the person is coming from, my city is not really cold meaning we have moderate weather.

The sole attraction in my city is the annual celebration of Osun Osogbo festival. It is celebrated during summer and it attracts tons of tourists from different parts of the world. My city is known for its strong influence on the Yoruba culture just as it is labelled as a cultural site.
