#RoundAboutTown With Henri Yire; “The Love Aftermath”

Lagos has settled.


The aftermath of the intense amoral activities of yesterday, Valentine’s Day, has left a few lovebirds drained.

Emotionally and otherwise.

The island was clogged with traffic and with the unrealistic ban of Okadas and Kekes, Uber and Bolt drivers were on a roll. Selectively accepting rides without apology or empathy.

An otherwise N100 naira Keke went for N1,500 when navigated using an Uber.
But that did nothing to deter love enthusiasts as they came out in throves to consume the targeted experiences curated by show promoters.

Valentines day is over but the experiences are not. In fact for some discerning lovers, it is only just beginning.

We have put together a collection of weekend experiences that you can try out.

Here they are:
