Club Boys Ran Unis Back In The Day. Were You One?

November 21, 2018

Back in Uni, if you weren’t a club boy, what really were you?

No seriously, before G-boys ruined everything, Club boys were the business.

Can you remember how it felt when, after hearing about club boys, the biggest ones in school came to invite you to join them?

Lowkey, you were scared they wanted you to join a cult though.

Then they mentioned all the 20k you’ll be dropping for house, club , school and even church party and your head started spinning.

Can we respect our allowances, please dear?

Five minutes after you finally agreed, your Twitter, Facebook and birth certificate name changed to ‘Yinka InXcess’

Back of jersey too. If you don’t give them, how will they take it?

Did you ever see a club boy meeting? Forget CEOs, these guys were making serious power moves

No jokes, these guys were making power moves.

If you don’t believe us, every club boy had a position. There was The Chiefo, 1st co, 2co, treasurer and freshers

The hierarchy was solid, forget!

One of the best things about being a club boy was when it was time to do event publicity and they had to go to all the hostels in branded t-shirts

They swore this was what they looked like this though

If your friends didn’t try to hustle you to allow 10 of them enter your club event for ₦2 500, you had really good friends

Seriously, boys were not smiling that year.

If you think you know disappointment, then let club boys tell you about how girls, drivers and venues cancelled on the day of their events

And it was never the week or day before. Always that very day!

That disappointment is even small, club rivalries were the realest. Imagine literally no one showing up to your club event because another club picked the same day to throw a party

And you thought they knew how to fight on Game of Thrones.

If you think club boys just liked to party, guess again. These guys were cashing out!

Think of it, 3 000 for regular, 5 000 for VIP. Table fees, couple fees, these things usually added up!

Were you a club boy? did all your parties bang? Let us know!!!
