      Lol, I know right? It’s funny how people who don’t live in Lagos generally complain that all the events on this site are only in Lagos. The reality is that those who live in parts of Lagos that aren’t V.I, Ikoyi, or those other supposedly posh places don’t have too many hot things popping in their areas. No fancy area, no poppin’ party.


      April 29, 2011 at 8:39 am

      many of these areas do have big things happening. port harcourt, abuja, and sometime calabar has its events, just that they don’t make it to this site for the wider audience.
