6 Ways To Be Relevant At A Nigerian Party



How to be relevant at a Nigerian Part

Nigerian’s throw the most extravagant, fun parties ever! Argue with me in the comments section if you don’t agree-no party like a Lagos party. My favorite Owambe’s are wedding receptions. So lets take you through the 5 things you can do to be relevant at an Owambe

LOOK GHEN-GHENCIOUS: If you’re going for an owambe try and buy inside the asoebi and give it to a correct tailor. Complete your look by visiting or inviting a professional make up artiste to beat your face and tie your gele-the kind of gele that will command respect and attention and spray your most expensive perfume.

FIX YOUR ENTOURAGE: Arrive early and enter an owambe in a group or as a couple, me I can’t go alone and no one really pays attention when you enter alone. You need your company to come correct, just so you can command attention. Also, watch the way you carry yourself-don’t just waka scatter enter the venue, count your steps, suck in belle and elevate your head.

PLACE YOURSELF STRATEGICALLY: Find the right location to sit down. Sit where your host will see you clearly and where you can have a good view of anything going on. As soon as you enter the venue, with your eyes, scan quickly where the important people are sitting, you will know. Just find a way to place yourself there. At this point you may have to tip an usher to fix you up with a good sitting spot. Where you sit will make a difference whether the ogufe will finish before it reaches you or if AC go circulate reach your corner and if you will generally enjoy the event.

TIP: Money makes the world go round and at a Nigerian party tipping the ushers can make a major difference in your experience. Tip the official photographers and collect their business cards –this will make them focus on you a lot especially as they believe you will be a potential customer. Tip the camera man for the same reason. The most important tip is for the band. Write your name on a piece of paper and give it to the band assistant (they always have one) so that they can just be singing your praises as you do the next step.


SPRAY SPRAY, SPRAY: Pre-determine from your house if you want to spray money so you have enough time to convert higher currencies to small currencies or foreign currencies. Ensure you’re one of the first or one of the last-work your way to an angle where the camera will focus on you and don’t forget to signal the band say time don reach. Develop a unique spray style i.e you can choose to spray the notes single, single, or if you’re BIG lol, stone your host with bundles of notes. Spray till you empty your pocket.

Dance! Dance! Dance!: Have fun at the party, don’t just be a spectator. Be the party.
