It’s no secret that we have a bit of a love affair with West Africa. Our fire dancing troupe ‘The Carbonettes’ spent 4 months entertaining at a plush nightlife venue in Accra in Ghana over the winter season and fell in love with the kind people and rich culture. So when we were invited to relaunch a club in Nigeria, how could we say no?
The client loved the extreme look of our tattooed and pierced performer Fran, and the freckled afro-haired beauty of our mixed-race performer Yasmin. Both ladies have performed all over the world so they were perfectly placed for a whirlwind paycation to Lagos.
There was torrential rain throughout the entire job which meant unexpected tarpaulin over the stage, a soggy terrace, and much smaller flamed shows than we’d hoped to perform but the ladies made it work whilst still keeping Health & Safety in mind at all times. What an amazing venue Quilox is and credit to the organisers for treating our ladies like princesses. Just make sure the sun shines for us next time please, okay? We have plenty of rain here in the UK, thanks!
