Big parties are not made for Instagram and magazines alone, everyone should have a feel of what they do there. As you have seen, There’s usually lots of Jollof, music, enjoyment, souvenirs and all the good things you can imagine. However, as good as all these sounds, getting into these events without an invitation is not for the faint-hearted as a couple of challenges will be faced before you can have a successful entry.
I prepared 11 sure ways you can evade potential walls of Jericho and have a successful Mogbomoya,
Ready? Read on.
N.B: Mogbomoya is not for the weak in heart. If you’re caught, the consequences may be fatal. Be prepared!
- DRESS THE PART
Common! This is the code, you must dress well, you should kit up better than the celebrants, Dress like it’s your cousin’s wedding; Even if na to borrow, tie that head tie properly and make sure your make-up is on fleek. Then put on your best confidence and enter the hall like a king, the bouncer sef go fear packaging.
2. DON’T BE TOO EARLY
Ok, this is not the time to keep the ‘don’t do the African time thing’ you can go back to keeping to time for other functions, but in this case, don’t go early, biko, don’t. take your time, you can hang around the venue and wait till the bouncers are tired; they are usually in active mood when the event is just starting. Be calm, events that needs gate-crashing has food aplenty, go when the party is in full swing and when the people trying to gain entry are more than the bouncers can handle.
- WALK-IN LIKE A SLAY QUEEN
You know that code right? Gather all the confidence you need and walk in stylishly, don’t foget to give the bouncer some bossy look if the try to stop you.
4. POSITION YOUR SEAT STRATEGICALLY
This is another important step; choose the right seat, you don’t want all the goodies to pass you by after going through the rigours of entering right? Scan well and get yourself a good seat.
- FORGE AN INVITATION CARD
I am not with you in this bro, but if you have an idea of what the invitation card looks like, forge it; you need to be prepared for the unforeseen.
- FIND A PACK
Famz the Yoruba demon or slay queens’ group and enter with them. But make sure they are not holding a card that admits only one.
- FAKE A PHONE CALL
Haha! I like this one, just fake a phone call; pretend like you’re talking to one big man, you can have a conversation like; ‘’are you in already sir? Ooh! I’m at the entrance already’’ I can assure you that the bouncers will hail you as you walk in.
- EAT WELL
So after all the stress, you con dey form right? Abeg, eat well. Do it with class and stylishly pour them into the extra bags you brought. As e dey hot na.
- DON’T DANCE TOO MUCH
What business do you have with dancing like it’s your party? Baba, you no get reputation ooo, just move slowly to the beat and craftily pick few notes. (a child of God should not steal though)
- GRAB AS MANY SOUVENIRS AS YOU CAN
Some souvenirs can be mouth opening, just accept them with thanksgiving, they are given without preference in parties like this.
- DON’T OVERSTAY YOUR WELCOME
Once you have achieved your aim, pack your load(s) and leave. Don’t wait until the party is over, also hail the bouncers on your way out, you can meet them in another event.
