Parties, Concerts and Everything You Should Be Doing This Weekend

March 5, 2022


Please tell me you haven’t been locked up without doing anything fun since your lonely valentine in February. If you were like us and you were busy hating on all the couples and ‘boo-ed up’ photos on social media, then the first weekend of March needs to be beautiful. We don’t care whether you are staying in or not, for the sake of your future, make it fun!

We are here to save you by giving you a list of things you can do to cure your boredom this weekend.  

1. Gym Flex

Remember when you said you were going to get fit this year? Well, we are now in the month of March, and you are yet to step foot in any gym. For those of you who had the guts to get the gym subscription and have not used it, there is a special side of the gym for you.

Anyway, we just thought of telling you that you have less than three months to get your summer body.

2. Owambe ‘Parry’

If you keep avoiding those owambe invites, your friends will believe you’re a sadist. Biko, pick up any of your dripping native attires and grace the occasion for the sake of your sanity. Head to the ‘gram, step on our necks. And who knows, you may meet your Femi or Chidinma this weekend.

PS: Any wedding owambe that still begins with a ‘Dorime’ procession for the train entrance deserves your immediate exit. Enough said!

3. Davido’s 02 Concert: Naija Style

OBO will be live at the 02 Arena! Let’s not begin a ‘who’s bigger’ quarrel. But we all know who the biggest is, and he will be live in London this evening.

If you live in the UK, that’s great – you can get the last two tickets in ALAT by Wema’s giveaway. #ICYMI, Davido became the digital bank’s ambassador in December 2021, after that ₦250 million he received from fans and friends from across the world.

If you are in Nigeria, you can get about 10 friends, grab drinks and pizza and stream the show live on uduX on a large screen. In fact, turn it into a watch party! (If you are smart enough, you can make money out of it)

You can even get free backstage access to the show. There will be a surprise takeover over on ALAT’s Instagram account to give followers an exclusive peek behind the curtain. PS: click here to join the ALAT Trybe  on TwitterInstagramFacebook to get all the juicy gist and drama backstage.

On a second thought, what more are you searching for outside?

4. Watch Football — Premium Disappointment

Being an Arsenal or a Manchester United fan can be the hardest thing right now but trust me you need the adrenaline rush once in a while. It can be some form of preparation for future heartbreak, who knows.

This weekend is another game week in the English, French, Spanish, German, Portugal leagues. It’s a blood match!

Grab a glass of Heineken and have fun shouting, ‘’you should have scored that you, rabbit stew!’’ Or whatever you please. Just use it to let off some steam.

5. Enter The Market (Not Go Shopping) And Save Some Money

If you’re tired of giving these vendors all your money, you could pick up your ‘’Bagco’’ bag and head for the market.

Ignore the headache that the price hikes would cause and focus on the fun of doing something for yourself. Buy egusiponmo and beef. Haggle with that pepper vendor and let her hiss at you! Lol.

But jokes, aside. Cooking may help save money this week. Then by the upper week, you can go back to gourmet dishes and restaurants that sell thimble-sized food at exorbitant prices.

6. Binge on a TV show

As usual… There are too many recommendations. Streaming sites like Showmax are offering HBO specials for every urge you may feel. Whether you are hooked on Euphoria or not, there is something for you.

The most important thing is to relax and enjoy yourself. Ignore that friend that says you never go out. Let them bring the money to help you flex. Until then, TV binging is the way to go.

7. Sip and Show Of Your Picasso Skills

Yes, everyone seems to be doing them. But they are popular for a reason – you get to show how much of an artist you are (or disappoint yourself) and laugh at others. It’s fun and light and the perfect way to unwind.

If your painting turns out horrible, you can leave the venue without it. But you would have laughed.

8. Go Paintballing:

Sometimes, all those adrenaline-fuelled movies tell the truth. With a lot less carnage, add in friends that you won’t mind being hit by colourful paint bullets and you are good to go.

Please, do some stretches before you hold that gun. It can take a toll on you.

9. Pray o!

Do something you haven’t done in decades. Go on your knees and pray to your God, with the hike in prices, the ‘disappearance of fuel, and all that is happening at the moment, you just might need a high.

Whatever you choose to do, have the most fun out of it. If you love it, do it. Life is too stressful to do otherwise. Forget your employer, bae or stress… you only live once.
