    I dont understand the meaning of this. “Nigeria’s first
    purpose build night club Please explain

    • CovertNigerian

      December 27, 2013 at 9:28 pm

      I assume they mean it was built and designed to be a club as opposed to being a randomly available space that was converted to a club. I wonder how true it is…I vaguely remember that Flavour opened a club a while ago, whether it was purpose built I don’t know for sure. In any case, I think it’s an irrelevant fact that some people are putting out there hoping that it makes their news more important/interesting.

    This bleaching thing sha…. It’s never bothered me before
    but the skin on some ladies here is rather worrisome. The club
    looks really good but BN you didn’t tell us what part of town it’s
    located… Or the brains behind it. (Maybe you already did so in a
    previous post )

    What kind of lies is ‘Nigeria’s first purposes built night
    club’? What happened to places like Niteshift Colisseum in Ikeja
    and The Dome in Abuja? Arant nonsense.

  5. CovertNigerian

    December 27, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    I don’t understand why we so often feel the need to claim
    to be the “largest” or “biggest” in West Africa or Africa even when
    there’s no way to know, or even if there is no attempt has been
    made to verify. Unnecessary vanity will not suddenly make things
    better than they actually are. It looks like it could be a great
    venue, that ought to be more than enough.

      my dear I was wondering the same thing. at first I thought they meant governors of the club, I had to re-read to verify nigerian’s stupidity

      Na Wa O’. No wonder our country is in such a mess. Our governors are party animals! I know our action governor, BRF will not attempt such as a thing.

    So I am looking at the demographics of the opening night guests and a few thoughts come to mind. Perhaps the owner is in his late fifties; this is a club for older folks – which could be cool I guess; the owner is out of touch with the real clubbing crowd – the young uns. Either way, I no get money. I shall patronize to see what it means to actually erect a structure with the intent of clubbing in mind. It had better beat MGM Grand Las Vegas nightclub. he he he hehe

    The word to describe this club is “Obnoxious “. Gathering of the Alatika Crowd who are looking for a higher aspiration in entertainment but lack a clue.How can you build the “biggest niteclub in Africa” without Parking Space.I went into the place recently and the Interior was disgusting.It was overdone.The promoters including Shina Peller showed the lacked Taste and Class. Didn’t they here the saying “Less is More”. Well,the Lagos Cool Kids so no to this and 8 months lifespan for this Club will be asking for too much…..Rubbish

    the club is actually owned by shina peller thats why he invited his dad’s friends for support i guess. its located @ ozumba mbadiwe if going to lekki its on your right handside. nice place i must say but its toooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo BIG.

    December 28, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    Looool!! You guys and your comments!!! ‘Alatika’ oh gosh!!! Lmaoooo!!! I think I quite agree though. There are barely even any pictures to show the interior of the so called multi-purpose club… money without class= epic fail!

    December 28, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    See money. Sorry folks. It’s for big boys and girls.
    Finally something decent for big boys and big girls. My kind of
    crowd. Cool sophiscated Yoruba setting.silent money. Not the
    pangolo empty crowds we see. Will definitely visit. Sorry to the
    young ones. You will not understand.

  24. Amh

    December 28, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    This is the kind of club you take your wife too. From the
    pictures it’s apparent the men came with their wives.the crowd are
    older. Runs girls piss off it’s strictly for the matured money.
    After 20 years of marriage You will appreciate dinner, clubbing,
    with your spouse.

    this club looks very mature…for uncles…who are probably NOT single loooool

    The crowd sha……no comment. Wey Dbanj, Banky W and co. mentioned in the article. I’m guessing they didn’t showed up or they left early cos it wasn’t their crowd. Perhaps they declined having their pictures taken:)
    The club might actually be a good concept cos people who do not fit in with typical island club crowd now have a place they can feel right at home:)

    @Amh – Abegi most of these folks look like my parents’ age mate. Trying to picture my parents all dressed up talking about ‘We’re going clubbing’ lol! Dinner and a movie- yes , clubbing – hell no. There are some things we have to let go after a certain age:)

    Well I see reason why nigerians aint gonna move forward, you dont appreciate when your fellow man do something great, there is a difference between Grand opening and normal night clubbing, I was there at the Grand Opening and I have been there 3 times after, I would say its one of the best in whole of Africa, most of you commenting I believe you never left the boarders, you people lack exposure When there is a Grand Opening you expect Prominent people, dignitaries that alone would tell you how big the club is so if you know you cant afford luxury dont hate thats just your destiny let those who can enjoy it

    I was shocked when I first heard about quilox I flew all the way from SA to see the so called club, I was never disapointed I was so impressed about its standard, service and people I met, I am a fan of some of nigereia musicians wizkid, davido,dbanj, etc I met them there I realised I was at the right place so my rands was not a waste. I had the best time of 2013 i was babalaz

    I am 27yrs old hard working dude,i heard the gist and I went there the next day I must confess its a place to be there were people of my age maybe older in the late 30’s I met different people classic, clean and reputable guys not all those rubbish clubs were you will find dirty idiots and you cant even enjoy your money maybe there will be one club someday better than quilox but for me quilox A++++++++++++

    Nigerians!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why do we like to criticise ourselves for God sake. I have read a lot about Quilox and I can say it is a good change to nitelife in Nigerian which will definitely add value to this country considering that entertainment is an important factor in general. We should learn to encourage our fellow Nigerians in order to make this country a better place.

    @Cambridgeshire babes and others critics, I read about Quilox on some other blog that proved you wrong and I am sure there still a lot more………

    January 12, 2014 at 11:24 pm

    Faceless jobless nigerians, what single thing have you ever done for your country or what single contribution have you ever made to your home town or city or state??? Nothing! What then qualifies you to criticise someone else who tries to improve social life, who brings in ideas from other developed cities and implements them in our country? Or would you rather the whole country be as jobless, as unambitious, as lazy, as selfish, as useless and as unproductive as you lot???! Always quick to type whatever rubbish comes to your feeble minds in between sips of cheap paraga! Quilox Management, more power to your elbow. Stand up and applaud continuing development of Lagos State. We pray for many more!
