Love is in the air and everybody wants to prove just how much they can feel it. Even in Lagos, the commercial capital of Nigeria, where everyone is always on the move, valentine’s day creates an atmosphere where everyone just wants to have the perfect day with their partner.
Now after the hustle and bustle of the workday, the mood is set for an evening to kick back, relax and get lovely or – in some circles – naughty with your partner.
