The first thing you need to realise is that this is serious business. And for everything business,
1. Arrive early.
But be rest assured the party will start late. So go with a charged battery plus there’s no shame in carrying a power bank along.
2. It’s all about the food.
Forget what they said, it’s about the food. Even though you will hear people form with nonsense like “I can buy this food outside if I want.”
But you didn’t Sir.
3. No ankara no semo.
Save yourself the stigma and try to buy that Ankara, or lace. The people serving food might never stop walking past you with the small chops. But there’s a counter-strategy;
4. Tip the food servers: Watch your story change forever with this single move.
”Can I have one more chapman? Or maybe six?”
5. Home training is not very important.
Eat like it’s your last.
Order an extra plate. Ask for two drinks and keep one in your bag. And when you hear, “Its Young John the Wicked Producer,”
Just because you’ve eaten enough for the next one week.
6. No matter what you choose to eat, make sure you have a taste of their Jollof.
Period. Party Jollof makes all the pain go away?
