While growing up in this mushrooming urban center, I have learnt to love the city in spite of itself. Despite the challenges, thousands of new residents are still drawn to the city weekly, mainly because of its commerce, dynamic culture and the spirit of its people. Life in Lagos is vibrant, colourful and, among all else, full of opportunities. I’m wearing a thrift find cream suit on a white shirt. And the red lace-up Franck New York shoe is from Konga.com.
