Documenting the style-scape of Lagos, Nigeria




Listen, Lagos has soul!

Do not let anybody tell you otherwise.

Last night, my girl Tomiiwa invited us to watch her perform at the TARUWA event at the quaint and unapologetically African Bogobiri Hotel in Ikoyi, Lagos.

The Bogobiri website describes TARUWA as a night "which offers a platform for new talent in "spoken word" and music to the weekend High Life, Jazz and Afrobeat shows by more established performers."

Oh c'mon Bogo, out with the modesty! You and I both know it's way more than that!

The vibe, the laughs, the spoken word, the rhythm, the poetry, the food, the music, the audience, the vibe...the VIBE!

And let's not forget the style...

Last Tuesday of every month.



  1. Ahaa, its nice dialogue about this article here at this website, I hafe read all that, so now me also commenting here.

  2. Those of us that live outside Lagos, what do we get?

    1. Ah! You will need to create your own Bogobiri!

  3. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it
    can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  4. Hello there! Quick question that's completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My website looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.

    I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be
    able to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions,
    please share. Thank you!
