Hey, that’s no license to go ballistic with the groove quotient.
We made it through the best and the worst in the Lagos event scene, from badly-planned events to the most sought after gigs that rocked the event landscape.
But we are not done yet.
Here are some of the last ( but definitely not the least) events to close out your year.
We suggest a sojourn to some faith-based settlement to be close to God when the new year pops. So find some time amidst the partying to do that, okay?
Here’s our event offering for this weekend
DECEMBER 27-29th, 2019
A platform for artists designed to provide exposure for artists of African descent in the bid to help connect and bridge the gap is curating a 3 day exhibition.

The Lagos Review Closes 2019 With A Final Literary Offering
The Lagos Review, a cultural platform that features reviews, literary essays, interviews, chats and other forms of cultural expressions, kicked off sometime this year, deciding to position itself alongside a slowly dying breed of literary gatekeepers who employ literary criticism to analyze creative works.
As the year wraps up, The Lagos Review presents its final newsletter for 2019, scheduled for Sunday the 29th of December with a note of thanks.
