THE LAGOSIANS- A pregnant woman wields a bright yellow dress to an Africa Magic event at the wheatbaker hotel. I have always been intrigued by Lagos. I grew up in Accra on an equal dose of amazing and traumatizing stories about this city. I first visited 13 years ago and my love for the city only grows. Anytime I tell people, anywhere in the world I find myself, that I love Lagos, they look at me with either shock or confusion but the truth is, there is so much happening for this city. I have had the privilege of meeting some of the city’s most influential, most talented, most popular over many visits. I want to dedicate my instagram posts for the next couple of weeks to all the amazing Lagosians I meet everyday. Enjoy. Photo by Nana Kofi Acquah (copyright:2014).
