Welcome to Detty December — the most anticipated period of the year by almost everyone.

A period of colorful street festivals, blissful Christmas carols, lit end-of-the-year parties, all-night Afrobeats concerts, high school reunions, an influx of IJGB kids, and energetic celebrations with fireworks in the sky.

It’s a time to disconnect from work, get immersed in a flurry of back-to-back fun activities, finish the year celebratory, and hope for a better new year.

What I love most about December is that there are plenty of fun activities to indulge in. From large musical concerts to close-knit hangouts, there’s something for everyone, no matter your vibe.

Abuja shines brighter when it’s the end of the year. If you’re looking to navigate the final month of 2023 and spend Detty December in Abuja, this guide is for you.
