Nigeria is moving funny, and the only respite most of us have is in the arms of our family and friends. If you’re like us, we’ve curated some ways to make it count while you’re having the time of your life with your friends.

Put your phone down

Believe it or not, the best way to enjoy time out with your friends is by putting your phone down and living in the moment. It might be hard, but if you can ignore the multiple calls, texts and social media notifications, we promise you’ll have a swell time.

Play fun drinking games

When has playing a drinking game not led to shenanigans and ridiculousness. We suggest you play “screw your neighbour” and make your drink of choice Jack Daniel’s whisky. It’s smooth and won’t have you feeling like what you’ve been through the next day.

Social media challenges

Something about making a fool of yourself with your friends while trying and failing to learn TikTok and Instagram challenges makes everything in the world right again.

Try new things

Make a list of all the things you’ve always wanted to try, and get your friends to join you in what may or may not be a series of bad decisions. You’ll tick things off your list, make memories with your friends and have a lot to talk about for years to come.

Share the tea with a drink

Drinking on your own is fine, but there’s nothing as good as sharing hot gossip with your friends over a bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey.
