Hope y’all having a great day cos i am :). As y’all must have figured out; This blog was created solely to blog about my school life as a Fresher when school gets in session. But before then, wouldn’t be a bad idea to have y’all get to know me (will update my “ABOUT” page soon) and where i’m from would it? So today i’m blogging bout The city of Lagos,Nigeria. I grew up here and i school here,basically i have lived all of my life here and i’m just gonna talk about a few stuffs i know about Lagos. If you want to know more like demographics,Geographic info,History n sturvz click here cos i ain’t going into all that.
Will be talking about: Little of “About” ..ish,The People,Schools,Food,Fun Spots and NightLife(My Favorite). Here goes:
Lagos is a port and the most populous conurbation in Nigeria. It is currently the second most populous city in Africa after Cairo,Egypt and is estimated to be the fastest growing city in Africa (UN-HABITAT, 2008) and the seventh fastest growing in the world.The city is the economic and financial capital of Nigeria. It is in the South-Western part of the country.
With a population of over 8Million and counting being the most populous State in Nigeria no be small thing o! lol. The city is peaceful and like any other city has the rural and urban areas. I’d like to call my neighborhood the #UrbanGhetto cos it aint that bad 🙂
Lagos is the capital of Nigeria in so many ways other than FEDERAL CAPITAL TERRITORY ABUJA(Capital of Nigeria). Its the capital of Nigerian Fashion,Entertainment,Business and all sorts. People from every part of the Country Troop into Lagos to search for greener pastures.Hence the Dense Population.
Everything in Lagos is extreme. When it rains it really rains! When its sunny its really hot! and hustle is at its best here.They say “if you can make it in Lagos you can make it anywhere” 😀
Ok this is gonna be quick. Lagos residents are one in a million. #Gbam! You just know someone is from Lagos when you see their dressing,hairstyle and the way they behave. Swagger un-flawed lol. The people are friendly and love to show off :D..Yeah! is it bad to flaunt it if you got it? NO!
Lagos is like a mini-Nigeria. Cos here we have everybody here from every nook and cranny of the country. The main language in Lagos is Yoruba. But you get people from diff parts of the country here with the diverse culture and Language. Communication and Business is facilitated easily between people of different tribes because we have a General Language in Nigeria which is spoken by everyone in the country. Pidgin English is like our own version of the English Language.
In Lagos there are so many schools from Kindergarten to Universities,Colleges of Education,Polytechnics,Technical Schools and more. Some examinations are required to be passed before you can be accepted in these schools though. The schools here are of the best standards and I’m a proud student of the proverbial “BEST OF THE BEST UNIVERSITY IN NIGERIA” the University of Lagos(UNILAG) 🙂
Like i said in the “People” paragraph, There are people with diverse cultures here and different varieties of food.Which is why i love Lagos the most 🙂
We have countless delicacies here and i’d just mention a few..you want more? google it lol. We have Eba,Fufu,Pounded Yam,Starch,Amala,Wheat among others and we have hulalacious soups that go with the *Okele* i just mentioned: Egusi,Oha,Ogbona,Ewedu,Efo Riro and more 🙂
Lagos is the home of fun,Investors troop in to invest in pleasure spots here because Lagosians love to party and have a good time. Besides why go all throught the hustle if you ain’t gonna spend your money and live large perse(y) lol
We have shopping malls with Cinemas in them,Beaches,Amusement parks,Swim pools,Casino,Bowling Alley,Fast food outlets, Gymnasia’s,hotels and more everywhere. For pleasure Lagos is the place. Examples of Places you can visit in Lagos: Silverbird Galleria,Shoprite,E-Centre,EKO Hotel amongst others.
The most interesting time in Lagos by far is the Night. Lagos is the city that never sleeps! Clubs everywhere in every corner. My favorite though is the strip clubs(Sue me)
Its better experienced than blogged. Mad Dj’s and clubs open 24hours 7Days a week..Its fun fun fun! Regardless of your financial status there is always a place for you in Lagos.
Hmmm i dunno if this is supposed to be Captivating, Entertaining n all..you tell me :). Just giving you a peep into my environment 🙂 What do you think?
