If there is one thing most of us have in common is that a lot of us spend the whole week looking forward to the weekend. After a stressful, busy and hopefully productive week that probably involved a lot of deadlines, traffic and the likes, it is only natural to want the often very short break so as to kickback, take a breather and maybe do some event hopping. If like me, you’re a social butterfly and a great weekend involves going one from art exhibition to a book reading to a store launch then you might be feeling a little bumped at the idea of having to spend this weekend indoors thanks to the Nigerian presidential election which will be happening on Saturday, 23rd of February

Whoever said that the election weekend has to be dull and drained of fun and social activities? If you would be battling a case of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) over the weekend then here are some fun events happening in Lagos that you should get into – before or after you perform your civic duty of voting of course – this weekend.
