5 Best Places to Find Nigerian Celebrities in Lagos

5 best places to find Nigerian celebrities in Lagos city

The bustling city of Lagos is populous with the highest concentration of movie, music, television, theater, and sports celebrities of any city in Nigeria. From film and television shoots on the streets, to star-studded events at event centers and glitzy clubs a trip to Lagos would not be complete without a little celebrity spotting.

For travelers, celebrity spotting is a rarer occasion; in Lagos, it is just casually recognizing Genevieve Nnaji wearing sunglasses with her hair a little glamorous, browsing the aisles of The Palms, Victoria Island or Don jazzy nodding his head to some beat in his car while in traffic. However, if you want to catch a few more snippets of the real A-list lives, read on as we share insider tips on where to look for Nigeria's hottest stars in Lagos.

1. Ojez bar

Although this bar just does not pack in the A-listers like it used to, some famous people still love this place. Located in central Surulere, the hangout offers nourishing local and international cuisines and a nightclub and bar for drinks. Nollywood stars and popular TV icons are the most regular celebrities you meet here. At lunch, you might see Charles Novia and Emeka Osia enjoying an early happy hour, or, Funke Akindele asking her assistant why they could not get her favorite table.

2. Quilox

A night club on Victoria Island, Quilox seems to be doing the rounds in Lagos at the moment, with more and more big names being reported there every week. Recently, even the governor of the state was rumored to have visited the club with his crew. Also the likes of Davido, Wizkid, and Cynthia Morgan have said to have come for a night out at the club. The chic decoration and assortment of drinks (cocktails and spirit) makes it easy to see why it is proving to be such a big name haunt in the city.

3. Eko Hotel

Located in the heart of Victoria Island, Eko hotel is one place to find celebrities in Nigeria. You can either catch them attending one of the numerous events that are hosted in the venue, them dinning at one the onsite restaurants or just changing money at the Bureau the change. Celebrities are spotted in this fabulous hotel on the regular, especially for Sunday brunch as it offers a safe haven where they can come in for a great, relaxing meal without interference.

4. The Rock Cathederal

One of the most beautiful structures in Lagos, the Rock Cathederal houses a church –The House on The Rock. And while a church is not the best place to go celebrity hunting, you stand a chance of sitting next to one or at least on the same row with one. Most celebrities in Nigeria from Nollywood stars such as Chioma Chukwuka and Chidi Mokeme to music celebrities like Tiwa Savage, P Square and Seyi Shay frequent this church on Sundays and so, the building sees a constant stream of celebs, coming and going. A trip to this place allows you to kill two birds with one stone – get edified with a good sermon and possibly run into a A-list celebrity afterward.

5. Murtala Mohammed Airport (Local)

Nigerian celebrities are always on the move and a majority of them prefer to move via flights. While many of these stars who prefer to travel first class, hide in private airline lounges pre-flight, they must mingle with the public post-flight at the baggage terminals. If you do not happen upon an encounter with them there, then head to the arrivals terminals at MM1, as it is another area they are usually spotted.

How To Choose A Fishing Rod And How To Make It Last

No sportsman wins by sheer talent alone. No matter how talented a sportsman is, if his equipment is not good enough, his chances of winning will remain slim. That is because his equipment will hinder rather than help his game. A runner needs good shoes to run. A bowler needs a bowling ball that weighs and fits right in his hand. The same goes with a fisherman and his fishing rod.

Fishing is a sport that many people find enjoyable. It is always a challenge to get the elusive fish to bite the bait, and sitting still for hours on the end just to be able to catch fish can be very relaxing. But regardless of the challenge and the relaxation that fishing offers, the goal of fishing is still to catch some fish. Barring bad luck and circumstances that are really unfavorable for fishing, a good fishing rod is necessary for a good catch.

If you are a beginner at fishing, it is perfectly all right to use a simple fishing rod and reel – nothing spiffy and nothing fancy. When you are jus…
