|the only picture of me here!! surprising huh! enjoy|
I'm new to Abuja so I wasn't sure what to expect. I imagined Carnivale di Venezia (link) but I didn't want to look crazy & over dressed so i wore a super short dress. Then on my way to the car, after loads of "selfies" with my lovely cousin, i ran up & opted for knee length dress instead.
When I got the event i was super surprised!!!! EVERYONE was in masks, guys were elegant, ladies were in dresses you that could wear to a wedding, not trashy or clubby (bear in mind that Nigerian wedding guests & american wedding guests are very different, over here [in Nigeria] you dress to kill... might as well be going to the Grammy's!")
So If it happens again this year... best believe i'm bringing my A game.
*whew* finally PICTURES!!!!..... I got them! Here's loads of people & what they wore to the PLAY masked ball.
ps: Play's a lounge/ club... so you can imagine how surprised i was! it was so well done, free drinks, good dj, they even had a few performances. (I'm not about that singing Carol life... but i know people enjoyed it, and I felt boughie with myself, i secretly wanted the place a little darker & tighter so people would dance... we went to Play for the after party so that worked)
Loved the masks!! cuz I felt anonymous!
sooo.... I'm always on SnapChat: good or bad, I'm there.
for those who don't know what it is, basically you send a picture/ videos to friends & it lasts 1-10seconds for your friends/ followers to view. There's a 2nd option of a story, and that expires in 24hours. I saved some for u to get a 42second experience of our night, closet selfies, and my friends dancing "Shoki" at the party:
ok... now More fun pictures...
:) :) :) :)
|Pretty talented performer|
So many gorgeous people, lovely clothes, masks, gotta shout out Play Lounge, Charles, & Dike , & my homies who hooked me up with an invite & masks, cuz being bored isn't fun! Pretty cool gig
Life in Nigeria can sometimes be fun! Don't let the media paint us 100% bad, it's just 99, i'm joking, I promise. Nigeria can be an amazing place, and has so much potential. Anyways it's 2.13am, and y'all aint paying me to stay in bed gotta be up at 6am.
