HEINEKEN SHARES UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DRAMA WITH LAGOS FANS ON VALENTINE’S DAY



On Wednesday, February 14th, 2018, Nigerian football fans were treated to an exclusive viewing of  UEFA Champions League matches by International Premium Lager Beer, Heineken at the IMAX Cinemas, Lekki, Lagos. The vibrant event commenced with various fun games which entertained the eager fans ahead of the live matches, Real Madrid Vs PSG and FC Porto Vs Liverpool.

The Cinema venue was teeming with over two hundred excited fans, all set and ready to cheer  their favourite clubs to victory, while sharing dramatic moments on screen during the matches with friends present and those at home. Daniel De Humorous was also on hand to host the event, adding to the energy and excitement in the air as fans settled to watch the games.

History was made on the night, as Cristiano Ronaldo, the Real Madrid striker became the first player to score 100 and 101 UCL goals for a single club. The mostly Real Madrid supporting crowd was quite agitated when PSG scored the opening goal, but Ronaldo’s equalizer, which came via a penalty just before half-time, was enough to calm nerves. The Portuguese striker scored a second goal in the 83rd minute, which was shortly followed up by a third one from Marcelo to take the game beyond the Parisians.

To liven everyone up and calm things down  during the halftime break, guests played the “I Know The Game”quiz, where football fans were tested on the depths of their knowledge of the game,and winners were rewarded with Heineken branded items. The evening ended with much banter and excited chatter amongst the fans in attendance, as Real Madrid beat PSG 3-1, and Porto lost at home to Liverpool by 5 goals to nil.


UEFA Champions League fans in Lagos, Abuja and Port-Harcourt can continue to look forward to enjoying the Heineken UCL experience at IMAX Lekki, Silverbird Abuja and FilmHouse Port Harcourt, as the brand will be hosting fans every week across these three cities, with a series of live matches planned for the rest of the 2017/2018 Champions League season.

5 Types of People You’ll Meet at Heineken Viewing Centre on Champions League Night

The UEFA Champions League season is an exciting period for football fans all over the world. In Nigeria, many prefer to watch live matches at viewing centers, sharing the fun and dramatic moments with friends over a bottle of beer.
International Premium Beer, Heineken treated UCL fans to an exclusive viewing experience at IMAX Cinemas Lekki, on February 14, 2018 where they watched the explosive clashes between Real Madrid and PSG, as well as Porto Vs Liverpool. The event is first in a series of live matches planned for the rest of the 2017/2018 Champions League season in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt.
From our observation in Lagos, here are the 5 types of football fans you might meet on a typical UCL night at a Heineken Viewing Centre:
The Glamorous: Dressed in smashing outfits, cool, fresh people who'd never be seen out there without looking their classiest best, whether it be a red carpet event, or on a UCL game night.
The Romantics: What's better than lovebirds who also share a love for football? And the night was made extra special because it was Valentine's day
The Beer Lovers.
The Video Game Fanatics: While fans were busy cheering their teams on, the FIFA game addicts played their own match with so much concentration and intensity.
Football Elders: This set of people came with so much passion for the game and argued before, during and after the game. They know the stats, formation and all the players' middle names.
Which category do you belong?

FOOTBALL, LOVE AND PASSION AT HEINEKEN UCL VIEWING CENTRE IN LAGOS


Lagos|Nigeria: In the spirit of love, IMAX Cinema Lekki experienced a different atmosphere with International Premium Lager Beer, Heineken, hosting and rewarding football fans at an exclusive viewing of UEFA Champions League matches on Val’s day.


























Fun loving couples thronged the event to enjoy the energy of the live matches, Real Madrid Vs PSG and FC Porto Vs Liverpool. The classy crowd boasted a cocktail of men and women celebrating Valentine’s day, while also cheering on their favourite teams playing on the night.  There were four different viewing screens at the venue, each with differing aesthetics to add spice to an exciting football experience.
Even with a male dominated audience, the women present still proved their mettle by not only competing in the fun games on ground before kickoff and during the half time break, but also winning Heineken branded items in games and quizzes that tested their football knowledge.


After emphatic wins by fan favourites, Real Madrid and Liverpool, the guests ended the night on a high, leaving the venue with laughs and memories of a night full of drama.
Fans of UEFA Champions League in Lagos, Abuja and Port-Harcourt can look forward to enjoying the Heineken UCL experience at IMAX Lekki, Silverbird Abuja and FilmHouse Port Harcourt.

The 9 kinds Of People That Attended The Legend Real Deal Experience In Enugu



It was a night of great music, fun and excitement at the Polo Park in Enugu last Sunday as Legend Extra Stout stormed the beautiful coal city with its signature music tour, the Real Deal Experience concert, the first in 2018.
The headline act, famous Afro pop and highlife singer, Harrysong who unsurprisingly was the toast of all present, thrilled the crowd of fun-lovers with a bevy of his very popular hit songs as the revelers took him on in an unending sing-along.
With a good supply of premium Legend extra stout, cash prizes, gifts and other numerous side attractions, the night couldn’t have gone better for the fun-loving residents of Enugu who came out in large numbers to enjoy the concert.
As with every make sense concert, the audience at the Real Deal Experience was a mix of the good, the weird and the downright hilarious. From the lovebirds who saw the event as an opportunity to profess their age-long affections especially as Valentine’s is already in the air, to the those whose only business at the venue is the free drinks (not that Legend is complaining anyway), the Real Deal Experience had every constituency well represented.
If you dulled yourself and couldn’t make it down to the Polo Park last Sunday, we got you covered. Here are the eleven kinds of people that attended the concert in all their glory last weekend:
The Punctuality Prefects
You know them, probably met them or are one yourself. These ones got to the venue long before it started. They were there when the stage was set up, when the sound check was done, when Harrysong arrived, when he took off his left shoe, when he said hello hello chin chin. These ones are always there...they go way back...lol

The lovebirds
These are the Romeo and Juliets. They came to see the headline act perform but miss out on most of the fun because they just won’t let each other be; it’s either they are distracting other party-goers with their unwarranted PDA or laughing out loud to a joke only they heard.


The I-have-no-idea-what’s-going-on-here
These ones just happen on the concert venue either by luck, wandering or just fill in the blank...They clearly don’t know what’s going on, but everyone seems to be having fun so whatever...they join in. We would have called them the mogbo-mo-branch but they are completely clueless, and they didn’t gatecrash really.
The my boyfriend-is-here-so-I-came-too 
You know them: they are in your school, at work, in church and everywhere. You have them as friends, as colleagues, heck you might even be one of their kind. These ones came for just one reason: their boyfriend.


The I-came-for-the-drink-only
The brutally honest types: they are not here to dance or party, just for the free drinks. They don’t mind getting a plate of pepper soup to go with the free drinks too...oshofree!


The I-came-for-Harrysong-only-opening-acts-can-go-take-several-seats
You probably belong in this group. These ones only care about the headline act, if you like, introduce 50 fantastic opening acts, they still won’t look up from their phone. They came for Harrysong only and so shall it be...did I hear a silent amen?
The unofficial-photographers
These ones took pictures and videos at the concert venue all through the event. They missed out on the fun while trying to capture the event while making sure to distract those who have come to truly enjoy the concert.
The Playlist gang
These ones prepared a playlist from their house for the artiste. They won’t stop yelling at the musicians to perform their songs, well, until people around them yell at them to shut the f**k up.
The social media addicts
These ones are always glued to their phones tweeting and chatting away while missing out on the fun. They miss out on the fun and excitement but they end up having social media posts to show for it..so it’s a win too.

Social Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) By Ahmed Olayinka



In a generation where everything needed and wanted seem to just be only available at our fingertips, but also juggling for importance and attention, we are becoming more social than ever in trying to either strike a balance of interest or been pressured to get our needs and wants met. 


In Africa, being through with one’s studies raises the expectations of family and friends high. It may mean that at least, one should have seen a few things to be engaged with and in, in order to sort out a few needs. So, been pressured to meet your needs is a daily task everyone is saddled with. 


It’s not farfetched to know the reason why millions of young people across the world seem to have found a zone where the need is met. As young people, and this is me speaking from a social media expert point of view (Twitter precisely), I realized that the things that happen to us and the things we make happen are not clearly distinguished. 

Online, there are two kinds of people, people who MAKE THINGS HAPPEN, and others who INFLUENCE WHAT’S HAPPENING. Either is profitable and time consuming, rewarding and at the same time draining. Given the political downturn and its effect on the economy, many of us are becoming closer to our devices, exploring applications that can more or less ease us of the pain of irregularities before us. The media platforms are therefore the environment that float our boat. 


I am also well aware of the overwhelming ability of the social media platforms in influencing mass behavior via the text, images and videos we’re inundated with on a daily basis with contents charming and driving our attention and consequently, our resources. 


Twitter, as a case study, is highly effective in demonstrative campaigns that have influenced mass behaviour online (It won a national election in my county). We may get odd with circumstances we can’t control externally, but with a device, good network and our solitude, we get even with ourselves.


In conclusion, Social media has gone past being just a tool for social interaction; the tool now strongly affect the economical & political development or non-development of any system.
Alas! Youths in a failing system have a non conventional avenue to attaining the financial stability needed to reach their goals. 


In a generation choking from the influx of influences, a social CPR is the best solution.

Inside Lagos Strip Clubs ( The Fun And Dangers )



Weird, wacko, inordinate choice, just anything; such opinions matter little to her. For 28 year old Anastasia, tall, chocolate colour, endowed with well rounded mammary glands and other feminine attributes that are the nemesis of men, it appears nothing will separate her from the love of strip dancing. The young golden-haired lady is indeed hooked on her chosen profession.
With gusto, she declares, “I love it die. Strip dancing brings out the weirdness in me, especially when I see men watch with open mouths and salivate as if they could devour me any moment. It fills me with sense of power to get such rapt attention; only God knows what goes on in their minds. For me, I just do my thing, have fun, get paid and move on.” Ann as she is simply called, however, objected to her picture being taken. “Nobody knows I do this; even my parents or relatives do not know. Even the name I told you was not my real name. It is my business name. But that’s how I make ends meet.”
Strip clubs everywhere
Strip clubs are not new in Lagos. What is new is how the clubs are invading nooks and crannies of the centre of excellence. In 2009, some of these clubs were closed by a Task Force for operating in residential areas without permit. But they were later reopened when the state lawmakers felt that there was nothing illegal about the business.
That action may have emboldened the operators. Investigations by Saturday Sun showed that places like Igando, Ikotun, Egbe, Ajegunle, Okokomaiko, Egbeda, Festac now have enough dose of hotels that operate their own kind of strip club.
At Igando, very close to the main bus stop, is Oxygen Bar and Lounge; close to Iba Estate on Iyana – Iba – Isheri expressway, you find Ibuoye.
When this reporter visited Egbe town after hostel bus stop on Ikotun-Egbe road, some young ladies between the ages of 18 and 30 years were seen hanging around. But investigation showed that those ones were resident prostitutes. “I am not a strip dancer”, Beauty, one of the ladies told Saturday Sun , “I hustle here. I have my room inside. I can’t dance Unclad before all these men. When a man wants to see me, we go inside my room and do it”.
On further probing, Beauty said, short time ranges between N1000 and N3000 depending on what the man wants in addition. “The strip dancers come from outside. They are paid around N10,000. And they make more money from the men who sometimes do it with them at the dance floor.”
In these hotels, it is common to see banners hanged at their gates, lavishly designed with photographs of half clad ladies. “The banners are not mere advertisement puff,” a bar tender told Saturday Sun. “They are tips of the iceberg of the real stuff we can offer. Our girls are carefully selected for maximum satisfaction,” he said.
At Ibuoye where a bottle of beer that sells for N300 in the ordinary bar, goes at double the price inside the club, a service boy told the reporter that some of the girls seen were the strippers but were waiting till the club starts proper around 12am to change into their performance regalia.
What they do
Strip dancing also known as pole dancing is about skimpily dressed ladies smooching a silvery pole with ease and twisting their body seductively in a manner of dancing; engaging in er*tic dance steps packaged in a manner that the largely male audience can’t resist.
Occasionally, the girls pull up their bikinis and lingerie, revealing s*xy and sensuous cleavages to the delight of the male dominated watchers. Aside wriggling around the poles, the half unclad girls also serve their patrons with lap dance which is sitting on a client’s lap while performing seductive acts. It was learnt that during the clubbing, sometimes the dancers, when given enough tips, have Mouth Action with guests.
The girls go extra miles to entertain their guests; exhibiting daring tendencies towards clients as they throw themselves at men with ease, allowing free handling which in most highbrow strip bars are not allowed. While servicing a client, male or female, as women also visit strip clubs, especially the highbrow ones, such client is expected to generously stuff money in the girl’s bra and pant. The price differs; but the more, the merrier, for maximum pleasure; as liberal spray of good naira or dollar notes ensures the dancer stays longer with such generous client.
Investigation showed that strip dancing appears to have become a fad, a sort of selling advantage; such that most hotels in these suburbs now operate their own brand of strip club. In most of the hotels visited, there were no elaborate decorations like in the ones in the highbrow areas. At Egbe city, plastic chairs were part of the seats seen at the VIP floor with seven dancing poles. Any space usually demarcated from the main open bar, with coloured bulbs could do.
“After all, what makes strip club tick is the liquor and the lewd dancers”, Elias, a patron of strip club said. “Forget about all those high brow clubs that charge exorbitant prices for the same thing.
If I can catch my fun around here at a cheaper rate why waste so much money elsewhere?”
Before the proliferation of strip clubs; it was only in places like Ikeja, Opebi, Ikoyi, Victoria Island that you find clubs like The Cave, Millenium Koko, Wall Street Bar, Ocean Blues, Unique Club etc.
Patrons of such places are mainly the upper class; people with deep pockets. To gain access into the main place attracts about N5,000 as gate fee. This does not, however, cover the cost of drink or the cost of lap dances the client may be treated to. On a good day, lap dance costs between N3,000 and N5,000. Being at the VIP section costs between N20,000 to N30, 000. The drinks still don’t come cheap. For instance, a bottle of Malt or Smirnoff Ice sells for N800; a bottle of stout and other beers go for between N1,000 and N2,500 . The cost of wine and spirits range from N10,000.
Saturday Sun learnt that one of the clubs, Unique Club even published a magazine called Unique Babes. In it, the female dancers’ seductive photographs were displayed with reckless abandon. Some of the clubs have girls who are partly quartered in rooms in which willing clients can have ‘full’ blast s*xual experience with any girl of their choice.
For this service, the client would part with about N6,000 to the club as rent and about the same amount to the girl for her service. For instance, Millennium Koko said to parade the largest number of strippers, who claim to be undergraduates; aside the conventional nightclubbing has suites for customers who wish to relax after having enjoyed the strip dance.
Investigations showed that some of these girls indeed raise money through this means to pay their school fees and take care of their needs; but many are just out of greed and living weird life. “Many are girls who come from broken homes and lacked parental guidance.
Most of these strip dancers have one funny story another. They either claim to have poor parents or being in need of school fees. All I know is that it is a weird life. How can a lady created by God expose her body and allow men to do all sorts of things with her? And it is painful because these girls are indeed very beautiful. May be some of them are possessed by demons,” Paul who said he was visiting for the first time out of curiosity told Saturday Sun.
One of the girls, Chi claims poverty drove her into her choice of profession; that she was an undergraduate in one of the universities in Lagos. According to her, the only way to get out of the doldrums was to do what she is doing and see herself through her education.
Why men patronise strip clubs
Ikechukwu, a respondent shared his experience why men patronise strip clubs. “Men patronise strip clubs because there’s a 100% guarantee that there will be women there with no clothes. Any man who denies that this is the most important reason should ask himself whether he would still go there if 60-year-old men were the ones taking off their clothes.
“Men love to see women’s bodies. The more they see, the better. In a strip club, they don’t have to ask, beg. Another reason is that these men are living a secret affair with no strings attached. Men usually fantasise about beautiful women; they see beautiful women as the epitome of successful dating. By seeing women of equivalent beauty that are completely n*de and seemingly vulnerable, going to a strip joint allows them to get closer to that fantasy. It is like a live version of the s*xual escapades men dream about at night. It isn’t cheating, but the thought of engaging one of the women does cross the minds of most men.”
For 26 year old Patrick, “My girlfriend gets tired of having s*x with me. She won’t admit it. But it’s true, particularly after a long day of work. My urges, though, never subside. I literally see pink everywhere and I have to find a way to release it.
Otherwise, I’ll go crazy and just think about s*x until my head explodes. I think my girlfriend would also break up with me because she would feel too much like a s*x doll. I’m doing us all a favour. I know no one will believe me, but my desire for women is like a disease. ”
Chika, 35 year old trader, said, “the kind of girl guys like me want to find at a strip club is a unicorn. She doesn’t exist in real life. Actually, she doesn’t exist in the club once they turn the lights on.
It’s all an illusion of s*xiness, whereas my wife is a real person that I love till death do us part or whatever. When I hit a club I don’t even feel like I’m cheating at all. I’m in a fantasy. I don’t expect my wife to understand this and I don’t even try to explain to her what going to a club is like for me. She would not take it the right way and freak out over nothing.”
For Sebastine, 45 year old fashion consultant: “As I think about this, I don’t think I can really justify my relationship with strip clubs except to just straight-up admit I chase paid p*ssy like an addict. If you have the money to be with all these beautiful women, why not take advantage of it? Like who wouldn’t? What is wrong with you? I’m sure your wife is hot, but look so are a million other women you’ve never seen before. It is just a taste of varieties, another justification is just that almost all rich people do this; most celebrities engage in it. They really do particularly the rich and famous because the only way they get their kicks is to just ensure the transaction is a transaction, among other reasons. It’s sort of sad but most of the time it’s just the ultimate luxury. It’s a shame there is such a stigma about it by the public.”
Bankole, another respondent said, “Because of my work I travel a lot to Japan, Germany, Vietnam, I’ve been all over. Each and every place I got I end up going to a strip club with the guys from whatever branch I’m visiting. My wife knows that I go and I’ve always justified it to her by saying that I’m expected to go and that it would put everything we’ve built together at risk if I snubbed these guys. All that’s true but I have to admit that when drunk I’ve made more than my fair share of poor decisions and I’ve cheated nearly half a dozen times over the last year. But I figure as long as I love my wife and I’m playing it safe then what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her.”
Osita, a guy in his mid thirties, said, “I don’t really enjoy a strip club. I’d much rather be at a bar than paying someone for s*x. Paying for s*x is stupid. I genuinely believe this. But surprisingly, I still find myself at strip clubs at least 3-4 times a year and blowing my whole pay cheque.”
