This welcome gift  print has positive effects on the night life of residents of the city, while the entertainment outfits are having swell time, smiling to the bank at the end of the day.

The fact that Night life activities which had been in the Limbo before this present dispensation have been resurrected has incidentally led to a boom in prostitution as the scariest ladies have taken advantage of the peaceful environment in the state to boost  their inglorious sex trade by hiking theirs fees.

Despite the ravages of HIV/AIDS the sex trade is booming and attracting teenagers The Tide entertainment investigation discovered that these sex hawkers could be found in several night clubs in the capital city and environs, including Hotels celebrating joints and beer parlous, especially  around GRA, Hotel Presidential, Rumuola Junction and other hot spots.

On a casual drive around these areas from 11.00pm, one could easily find several half nude girls and ladies in their early 20s and late 30s wearing crazy tops, trapless blouses and knickers, they flunt their huge and highly attractive boobs and waists as they pace up and down as if doing a rehearsal.

The target of these  daughters of eve are the sex starred men, home seek expatriates and other sex seekers. Their charges range from N5,000.00 to N10,000  per round of sex, while the price for all night sex romp or till day break (DTB) is about N25,000.00.

Before now there have been repeated calls by management of some of the night clubs that was allegedly shut in Lagos for parading nude girls. The go-go dancers presumably got tired of waiting and due to the harsh economic situation of the country decided to take solace in other states where their trade is sort for.

Another group of dancers known as pole dancers also experience trade boom as a result of the patronage they enjoy in the state. In these joints fun seekers go there to relax, watch the girls who are mostly makossa  dancers and relax for the night in fact some regard the  night life as heaven on earth and are always found there wherever it is happening in town.

Movie Production: Filmmaker Decries Activities Of Street Urchins In Lagos

Published

on

A Nollywood film producer,Mr Ralph Nwadike, says activities of street urchins in Lagos State remain a great concern to film makers, as they disrupt film production on locations.
Nwadike said this while speaking with the The Tide source yesterday, in Lagos.
He said that street urchins often demanded to be paid land fee (Owole), before any film production would commence.
According to Nwadike, this had become a thing of great concern to him and his colleagues in the industry.
He, however, suggested that the Lagos State government could empower registered film makers with some form of documentation to be presented to street urchins while on location.
Nwadike said such documentation would deter the street urchins and enable hitch-free movie production.
It is not only me, a number of my colleagues who are film makers in Lagos State experience disturbance from these street urchins.
“This has always discouraged most film makers in Lagos.
“These street urchins usually impose some amount of money on us to pay, if not, they threaten to destroy our cameras. They are always armed with knives and other harmful objects.
“They threaten to attack us viciously, this is so scary and it is affecting the tourism industry growth.
“I call on the Lagos State Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, and the Lagos state Film and Video Censors Board to wade into this issue because it is really affecting film makers’ business in Lagos.
“It is a sad development. Filmmakers should be given some documentation, which would enable us operate freely without being interrupted or disturbed by these so called street urchins,” Nwadike said.

“We had a lot of fun in the studio and hopefully this all shows up on the record,” he said.

“The Egypt 80 brings the horns on the Afrobeat fusion, “Zombie,”, and the Afro-meringue mix of ‘Welcome To Lagos’ as well as the free-wheeling “Stress Free” and “Banga.”
“Ikebe” is a gentle, uplifting prayer while “Big Vibe” incorporates the Amapiano sound into a pan-continental dance special and “Avocado” featuring Burna Boy leads you into a glorious sense of Afrobeats utopia,” he added.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the video, directed by Clarence Peters, is pure entertainment, complete with D’Banj’s tongue in cheek lyrics, stylish fashion and indomitable swagger.
