You can roll your eyes at bus conductors and MC Oluomo’s boys but they know ball. You’ll get more than a sufficient high with sachets of gin.

They also come in sachets and midget containers these days. The most you’ll spend is ₦600 and you’ll be higher than a kite if that’s what you’re going for.


A truly versatile king. You can afford it on your N1k budget whether you are at home or at a backyard club. Not the big leagues, abeg.



Is it the Nigerian economy or these guys will try anything to get their coins? Anyway, there’s whisky in sachets now and it’s not as expensive as what they sell in Quilox.
