Documenting the style-scape of Lagos, Nigeria




I come from a generation where in childhood, the mention of a future ambition in fashion, music, or any of the creative arts, could easily have been met with a "back-hand slap". 

Yes, our mummies and daddies were nary impressed with such talk. With all the money they spent on formal education, you had to want to be a doctor, an engineer, a lawyer, a pharmacist, an accountant or...yeah, a doctor. 

Where am I going with this? 

I know for a fact that if I could do it all over again, I would have found my niche somewhere in the quiet assurance of personal creativity. Some craft that I was happy to turn into a career because of the unbridled need to create and then create some more.

I remain fascinated by young men and women who were able to recognize their path early enough and pursue it. 

One of these is Bubu Ogisi. She is a designer and a stylist who's fiercely unapologetic about her creativity. One of those you might call a "style influencer". 


I bumped into her at a wedding the other day. She was a delight. 

Read more about her in this article I found here in ELLE South Africa

And live your passion. It's usually worth it!



  1. Nice dress and nicer legs

  2. Love me some Bubu, she always slays!
