I love Lagos BUT the traffic!!!!…..dem streets be mad!!!
Lagos is amazing for so many reasons, the culture, the style, you can buy puff puff, boli and suya on the streets … just make sure you pack Imodium – the risk is worth it.
In 2019 we got to see Wiz Kid, Teni, Burna Boy, Jidenna, Cardi B, Joe, Boyz to Men and even Mase – that’s if you managed to recover from the traffic to the venue.
The traffic was characteristically crazy and some of the people on the streets came out ready with their matching personalities, but we still love Lagos!
I think I left a little bit of my soul in traffic, somewhere between Lekki and 1004. Unmatched and totally undefeated, Lagos traffic continually knocked me, but it’s ok because I know I’ll be back for more of the onslaught.
In honour of the spirit called “Lagos Traffic” and it’s “tenants” I have dedicated the following posts from the 60s and 70s titled “Lagos Streets”
