Events This Weekend: The July 2012 Kick-Off Edition



Good Morning everyone, it’s Thursday!

First of all, we will like to thank you all for joining us here once again this beautiful morning and how are you doing? We hope great! On this edition of Events This Weekend – the slot where Africa’s pace setter for entertainment, fashion, lifestyle, music and a whole lot more keeps you constantly updated with all the most interesting and buzz worthy events to be seen with your loved ones this weekend, we searched high and low for exciting events to make this weekend a sure blast.

We have got so much packed up for you from the city that never sleeps Lagos (P.S, I mean that I was out late yesterday night by 11 PM and the streets of Lagos were still buzzing with exciting activities) to the nation’s capital city Abuja to one of Nigeria’s most cultural city Calabar. So sit back, grab a cold drink and see for yourself the places of interest to be spotted.
