Weekend Agenda: 2018 Trends, Concert Overload, More

This season isn’t just about how much you can enjoy yourself, it’s also about making other people happy. And what better way to spark a smile than with a gift?

Take your pick from over a dozen of the best affordable presents made in Nigeria and make someone’s day. There is joy in giving.

These are some other things to consider this weekend:

1. Online And Searching

Wizkid, politics, footballers and more Wizkid. Google’s Year In Search 2018 report is out and the trends are interesting, if not exactly eye-opening.

Elections feature prominently in the report alongside the annual friendly competition between Wizkid and Davido for the biggest song of the year. Shaku Shaku and Croatia’s stunning president also make an appearance.

2. Headlines

Living with the urge to die, Nonso Amadi wins at love songs, a 14-year old Nigerian makes history, the best movies of 2018 (so far) and the inventions of the year.

3. Your Best Shot

The Westerwelle Foundation is now accepting applications from entrepreneurs to its Young Founders Programme. Apply for a chance to attend a week-long conference in Berlin and receive mentorship for six months. Details are here.

Get a foreign Master’s for free with a Queen Elizabeth Commonwealth Scholarship. The award covers tuition, travel and living expenses. What more could you ask for? Get in.

4. Quarter To Sold-Out

Some of the most-hyped shows of December are going down this weekend, from Wande Coal’s Lagos concert on Friday to the Wizkid extravaganza in Abuja on Sunday.

Get tickets to these events and more on the ALAT app. Tap ‘Lifestyle’ on the menu and you’re in.

5. Every Other Business

Q: “Where can Nigerians visit without a visa?” (The answer is painfully short.)

Fuel the obsession, upgrade your iPhone selfies.

The special effects of Black Panther, deconstructed. (Why, people, why?)

Enjoy your weekend.
