About Lagos


To the uninitiated, Lagos is a fire-breathing monster of a city. On the mainland, the streets are packed with ribbed iron roofs pushed between permanent buildings, barely a sliver of African sun visible. The traffic roars and chokes and people squeeze into every spare inch of space. But Lagos does have a calmer side. Head to upmarket Victoria Island, where among high-rises and embassies, you will find Lagos’ cultural heart. Visit the Nike Art Gallery or discover feel-good Nollywood cinema at the Silverbird. The nearby Lekki conservation centre is a tranquil retreat. Monkeys chatter in the trees, peacocks flutter their tail-feathers – and the oxygen-rich air re-energises you. When you return to the brave mainland, venture to the New Afrika Shrine, where Nigeria’s premier music star, Femi Kuti, lights up the night with booty-shaking Afrobeat. Lagos is a beast worth taming.

The Nollywood – cinema of Nigeria – film industry has a larger output than Hollywood, producing up to 200 films per week.

With a population estimated at 21 million, Lagos is the largest city in Africa and one of the fastest-growing in the world.
