What is Lagos known for on weekends? If you answered anything other than “Parties”, you’re so wrong!
Lagos is the largest city in Nigeria and in West Africa. It is the hub of economic development in Nigeria, generating 10% of the nation’s GDP.
Although the former nation’s capital was initially dominated by a sub-group of the Yoruba tribe, it’s hard to tell the dominant tribe in central parts of the State now.
This is because you can almost find every Nigerian tribe represented in Lagos. Lagos seems to be the place where “things are happening” so it constantly receives visitors and people who relocate from their initial States of residence. Lagos is known to be a largely populated area, bearing over 28% of Nigeria’s population. It’s no wonder there are parties in Lagos every day! In times past, Lagosians were known to hold parties every Saturday; now every day is party day.
Studies have shown that most prominent event centres in Lagos are often quickly occupied on weekends, hence Lagosians are forced to hold parties on weekdays. Does Thursday or Monday Wedding sound familiar? The good thing about everyday parties is that it has aided wealth creation. Event planners, food vendors, MCs, DJs, and of course, Event Hall Owners have had their pockets enriched by just being available to partying Lagosians.
