A FEW OF HER FAVOURITE THINGS: Zainab Balogun

Zainab Balogun

At different phases of our lives, we tend to love some things more than others. Although some are consistent and never changing, others are, and with the many places to visit and meals to try, it is only fair we speak to some celebrities about their favourite things. This issue features Zainab Balogun.

Get to know her better with her favourite beach, cocktail and newly discovered lounge she loves to visit.

Where’s your favourite lounge to hang out and why? (Nigeria)

I really enjoy the newly opened Kaly Bar & Lounge. I also recently discovered SEE Lagos, which is very cosy and chilled. I love these two spots for their consistency in menu and service.

SEE LAGOS

What’s your favourite food?

I love seafood! If it has a mix of fish, calamari and mussels, then I’m all for it.

Where’s your favourite beach to visit(this can be anywhere in the world)?

Any beach with the Indian Ocean.

And for coffee or your favourite morning beverage, what would it be, and where do you go for it?

My morning brew is a fresh ginger & cinnamon tea that I make myself. It’s great for waking up the body and for boosting immunity.

What life rule do you live by?

Add value always!

What’s your favourite cocktail and why?

A classic Gin & Tonic. It makes me feel like I’m on a mini holiday.

What is your favourite movie of all time?

Inception is one of my favourite movies.

 

What is your favourite genre of music and/or what is your favourite song?

My favourite genre of music is RnB/Soul. I find it to be soothing and nostalgic. The best combination.
