Lagos Events You Must Attend This Christmas 2016


It’s that time of the year again folks! “The most wonderful time of the year” and when it comes to holidays especially in Nigeria, Christmas is most celebrated by a long shot.

2016, it came and went by so quickly, yet it was a weird and tough year for most people; however this December it’s time to change the motto; special shout out to Pepsi Nigeria for the #TurnDown2TurnUp campaign because this is the motive this Christmas. It’s time to turn down stress, struggle & dead vibes and turn up, music, events and rocks! Let’s end 2016 on a high.

I’m sure some of you must be trying to package the best possible rocks this holiday, you don’t want to dull by any means and in this regard I am glad to tell you that we here at GidiGuide have got you covered.  Now there are a ton of events going down this month, but we have handpicked a few that you should not miss by any means.
