But it’s not all fun in clubs and bars, hotels, house parties with loud music disregarding the existence of neighbours and long night drives.

 1. Traffic at night-time is devastating. 

Lagos traffic is a staple for the city but at night-time, it’s even more painful.

2. Night-time extortioners.

For lack of a less disturbing word, just pray to get home in one piece.

3. Noise.

Noise pollution is at its peak at night. Sorry if you live close to a nightclub.

4. High-risk travel.

The night bus is cheaper, maybe. But it’s one hell of a thrilling (not in the safe sense) experience.

With those said, there’s so much fun to have at night in Lagos, truly.
