I was having a normal day at work and a colleague whispered to me that there’s no work next week Monday , whaaaaaaaaatttt???!!! I jumped up my seat and danced ‘shoki’. (that’s my celebratory dance move) You see why i love my country? We love holidays.
Anyway, how is the week been my good friends? I know…just hang in there you’ll be going on vacation very soon (even if it’s just for a day) So I’m here to dish out those fun places to be this weekend in our beautiful city. Before I go on, here’s to 53 years of success, of greatness, of hope, of peace and love and more victories. I’m proud to be Nigerian . Trust me, I don’t think I’m ready to leave for anything.
There are lots of events happening this weekend in Lagos, You should not only try to attend but also relieve memories from them and that’s why you’ve got my social media handles to do the magic. So follow me on Instagram for pictures from the events you missed.
