Documenting the style-scape of Lagos, Nigeria




Nigeria is currently on a long weekend break. Even though I'd made no plans, to suddenly have Thursday and Friday thrust upon you as work-free days, and it's not even Christmas, got me a little bit excited.

Don't get me wrong, I love my job but...

Anyway, because my tooth got extracted on Wednesday evening (a fist pump and truck loads of respect to fellow warriors who've gone through that nightmare), I spent the entire Thursday in a horizontal state. 
You couldn't get me to stand up. Not even for dodo (fried plantain). You see...for me...dodo is the essence of life. 
It's not up for debate.
But yesterday?...NO.

And today, Friday, on a whim, I thought it would be nice to take the family out for breakfast. We went to Olivia's Cafe at  NUTS ABOUT CAKES, based out in Lekki Phase 1. The food and ambiance were beyond fantastic. Tasteful, tasteful, tasteful. Excellent customer service. And huge portions too.

We had to walk off this huge breakfast right? So we traipsed to Elegushi Beach.

As we made to park the car, this guy Uchenna walks up to us, and asks us to come to his beach stall. He began promising us a "very cool spot" with "the best grilled fish" and "chilled drinks". Thanks Uchenna but did you not see the size of our breakfast?

As I took his photo, I asked him about the theme behind his outfit. Surely there had to be a master-plan behind this unusual mix of colors and textures?

Uchenna said no. He had no plans.
