Weekend Agenda: Contests, Felabration And More

Are you spending too much on food? If red blood flows in your veins, you need to eat to survive. But even this most basic of needs requires planning, otherwise, you may find that you spend too much on your meals while other parts of your life suffer.

If feeding yourself is taking large chunks out of your finances, let’s help you cut the cost in four ways.

Here’s the rest of your weekend agenda:

1. Screentime

TV (and Netflix) is good for what it’s good for – entertainment, maybe even learning. But if you only have a few hours of time to yourself every day and you spend those hours binge-watching series or drowning in football, you’re shortchanging yourself. Learn how to reduce TV time and do more with your free hours.

2. Reported

How to be happier in seven days, sexual exploitation in Liberia, Nigeria’s future earthquakes and the Chinese reinvention of Android.

3. Contests

Transparency International is looking for young visionaries interested in fighting land corruption. Rewards include an all-expenses-paid trip to a workshop this December and support. Get details here.

If you’re not older than 28 and you’d like to intern at World Bank Africa, enter the #Blog4Dev essay competition here.

4. Baba 70

It’s Felabration weekend! Catch Femi Kuti, Seun Kuti, Simi, Adekunle Gold and The Compozers band in concert this Saturday at the Mavericks Experimental Night. The show starts at 8:00 pm at the Balmoral Convention Centre, Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island. Tap Lifestyle on the ALAT app to get a ticket for 5,000 naira.

Felabration moves to Freedom Park, Lagos Island on Sunday, with music from Omawumi, Femi Kuti and more. Tickets are also on the ALAT app.

Check the app for more events and movies.

5. Watch These

Watch this and try not to cry.

What’s real in Ant-man and the Wasp? Never mind. Here’s what isn’t.

Narcos is going to Mexico. (And you’re going to Netflix.)

Have a good weekend.
