Easter is finally here! And “excited” isn’t enough to describe the feeling many Nigerians have towards this holiday.
For the average Nigerian, Easter is that time in April when he or she gets an official two-day break from work, spends time with friends and family, and participates in a variety of Easter-themed giveaways, sales, and events.
Speaking of events, they are never in short supply in April.
In the spirit of the season, we have curated a list of events you should consider attending this Easter.

What better way to unleash your inner Picasso than to attend an event that teaches the rudiments of art?
