Sunglasses in Harmattan—-Yaay/Naay

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

Its a been a minute since i dropped a blog post!!!!

I got series of messages from you guys of wanting more articles. I am really sorry for the long wait. I’m glad the fan base is growing. I really didn’t expect so much messages but it made me  understand how important and useful what i post regularly is and the connection we have made.


I recently visited Abuja, and Harmattan there is no joke. I stay in Lagos and i can say there is no Harmattan here.

Harmattan in Abuja is crazyyyyyyyy!!!!! Everything is covered in dust. The air you breathe is dusty, your clothes is dusty in matter of minutes, it is too cold in the morning and too hot in the afternoon. I wore a pair of new converse for a meeting, by the end of the day, my shoe was dusty. It was crazy.

The good thing about the Harmattan in Abuja is the dryness of wind blowing, which means, you don’t get to sweat. Everywhere is hot but you do not get to sweat!!!!

But despite all these harmattan fuzz, my glasses came in handy and useful which brings about my blog post for today……..


Harmattan in Nigeria is a very dry, dusty period which is on the high side in the northern and eastern parts. It usually comes from the Sahara dessert in the West African Coast and could last from November/December to February.

Now you know how crazy harmattan can be. Personally, I am not a fan of this season. I used to hate every single aspect of it when i was in school. Being back to Lagos feels so good as harmattan is not one of our problems.

As dry and dusty Abuja was for me, my glasses came useful, as it protected my eyes from dust, getting itchy and drying up.



Now you see why it is a yaaay for me and it has to be a yaay for you. You don’t want your eyelashes getting dusty neither do you want your eye getting itchy.

Here are few tips to prevent your eye during this harmattan season….

  1. Always wear Sunglasses when going out.


2. Choose Polarized Lenses.
