As a Nigerian in this recession, how will you be spending the Christmas & New Year holidays?
For those who can afford it, a trip overseas is doable, while others will maybe take a trip to some out-of-town resort for or better still, the hometown to see grandpa and grandma. But as is the norm for true Lagosians and many others – visitors, expats and tourists, the Lagos Metropolis will be buzzing with life this December and very well into the new year.
So for those stranded by the exchange rate situation and those looking for the best place to be during the holidays, there are a few good reasons why you should stay back and spend the festive season in Lagos;
- Ain’t No Party Like A Lagos Party– Call us biased, but the best parties are held in Lagos. You really don’t want to miss exciting events like the One Lagos Fiesta holding from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day, where music fans will get to party live with some of the biggest artistes on the African continent, such as MI, D’banj, Tiwa Savage, Don Jazzy, Olamide, and many others. With over 40 concerts, and 500 hours of entertainment in 8 days, this one should be the mother of all parties.
- Rediscovering the beauty of Lagos– Although it is a known fact that Lagos is ‘hustle central’ as far as Nigeria is concerned, this season, you will get to see the fun and interesting side of the state, and also get to catch up on its rich history, and discover the many tourist attractions which will be showcased at the One Lagos Fiesta.
- The Ultimate New Year’s Eve Countdown– Superstition or not, Lagosians are big on starting a new year the exact same way they’d want it to end – joyfully! So why not countdown into the New Year alongside your favourite celebs, traditional rulers, and several hundreds of thousands, in an atmosphere of fun and entertainment, set on a background of amazing fireworks display at the One Lagos Fiesta on Bar Beach and in 4 other parts of the state.
