Nigeria was 'lit'

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 tattoo'd 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!

Jetsetting fire shows in Africa

Daze Entertainment has gone international, supplying performers to a brand new venue in Ghana's developing capital Accra which is fast becoming West Africa's 'place to be' for bars, hotels, restaurants and nightlife.  With only a few weeks to plan all the entertainment, source and make costumes, book staff in (during the busiest season of the year) and schedule flights for site visits, it was a lot to turn around quickly.

During December our team of performers touched down in 30 degree heat and got straight to work performing risk assessments, organising fuel for their shows, and attending photo shoots for all the launch media. It was a hectic week of early starts, late finishes and learning curves, but it was worth it in the end as the venue landed a double page spread in The Sunday Times, featuring none other than our beautiful fire girls.

Kudos to our team who are still out in Ghana performing fire shows at Carbon, enjoying the sunshine, seeing the sights and making friends with the locals. And what a pleasure to work with all the staff at the venue who have made our girls so welcome and appreciated. #thisiscarbon
