It's December again, and as usual there are loads of events lined up, but how do you ensure that after leaving your house for an event you do not miss out on the "Naija Jollof"? I mean, party wey you go you no chop Jollof na party be that? Lol.
It could be very annoying when you attend an event and miss out on the sizzling hot Naija Jollof while everyone else around are busy having a great time and digging into theirs.
The question now becomes, how do you secure your own plate of Jollof at an event without having to struggle?
I'll share with you my personal secret. Before now, I use to be one of those people who constantly attended events and go back home hungry because either the caterer, or the family members decided not to see me oh, until I did something about it.
The first rule for making sure you get a plate of Naija Jollof at any event without stress is to be properly invited. Trust me, if you have no invitation to be at an event then you have no business being there, and you have no reason to get angry if you don't get served. You just weren't in their budget. This might sound mean but it is the truth. Let's all to go to places where we are invited to avoid any shady dealings.
Secondly, your dressing should complement the occasion you are attending. For example, you can not appear at a wedding reception in a Jeans and palm slippers and expect to be noticed by the servers. My brother, my sister, look around you and you'll understand why you were skipped. So, dress up the way you'd love to be addressed.
Be punctual. My people, being at an event early gives you an opportunity to be well seated, and in comfort. Nigerians love showing up at events late, makes me wonder if the reason for attending was just for the food. So, be early, be properly seated, and trust me the Jollof will find you.
Lastly, don't be shy to ask for food. Speak to someone who is in charge of serving, and ask for food. Hunger no dey look person face oh, once e strike you, na hospital straight oh; so speak up.
I'll leave you with this. If you do all of the things stated in this article, I'm sure you'll never miss out on the Jollof again, and if you still do, then it’s YOUR VILLAGE PEOPLE, lol.
