EDL Weekender: Johnnie, Jazz and a Playlist

I had a nice and sweet intro but the website decided to be silly and nothing saved. With my goldfish memory, I remember nothing I typed.

Anyway, here’s what you can get up to this weekend.



New playlist for the week!


Full English at Churchill Pub

This is pound-for-pound the best English breakfast in Lagos. We found it a couple years ago and it hasn’t fallen off since. Folarin and Christina agree too.

I opted for the hash browns as opposed to toast and had no regrets whatsoever because of how they complemented everything on my plate. The bacon wasn’t super salty, baked beans didn’t taste like it had been sitting in the fridge for a while. The mushrooms were canned button mushrooms that I didn’t mind. Overall, it tasted really good. For the price, it’s an almost perfect breakfast.

Playlisters by Adey

I’ll be at Danfo Bistro this evening playlisting af Adey’s thing. A couple of old weekender playlists and this week’s one on deck.


Coffee with a Creative

I really like what Femme is doing for representation in the entertainment industry. They have another thing going on this weekend.

This event will help women understand how women behind the scenes in the music industry play essential roles as, Managers, Creative Directors and Producers and how important they are in keeping the ecosystem running.
