#RoundAboutTown With Henri Yire

So it’s the first weekend in about three months that we have nothing major to look forward to.
No Big Brother Naija Saturday Night Party.
No Big Brother Naija Eviction Show. ( am sure by now you know that I am a loyal BBNaija fan.)

Anyway, I had a feeling that you might be stranded with no fun thing to do this weekend, so I put together some sort of ‘bipartisan’ list of what and where you can hang out this weekend.
(Don’t worry millennials, this list covers you too!).
