Buzzerbeater is the biggest basket ball tournament in Lagos, which started summer 2016. The second edition held in July, this year at Ndubisi Kanu park Ikeja, Lagos. It is a lovely event for friends and family, packaged with lots of food,fun, and alot of basketball.

This event was “founded” by two young adults named; Adeleke Olayinka-Bello & David Aiyeleso.

They are both still in school and they started Buzzerbeater because they wanted to give  today’s youths something positive to do, thereby giving them an avenue to showcase their talents.

Last year, Buzzerbeater got sponsorship from companies like Seypop Limited, Fiyole Development Limited and their family members. While their friends came together and formed a planning committee to help make the event a success, these friends are Alex, Gift, Obinna, and Ayotunde.  Ayotunde helped with the video coverage and social media hype.

This year was a huge success, they had a great turn out, with over 900 attendees, they made this work by making it free for both the teams and the spectators (Nigerians like AWOOF!). This year, the age bracket for the teams was 17 – 23 years. Buzzerbeater did not start as a charity event, but now it is.

There will be more events to come!
