The best bits from Lagos to London
+ a little in between

Curated by
Tiwa Savage, 49-99
Have you watched the new Tiwa video? If not, what are you waiting for? It's a piece of art deserving of ALL the awards. The visuals, direction, art direction, the Elliot Elisofon and Fela head nods.... I could go on. The title “49-99” references Nigeria's Molue bus, which accommodates 49 seated and 99 standing - which she says could be seen as a reflection of the inequality and unequal distribution of the country's wealth.

Even Bag Exhibition, Lagos

When Design meets Functionality - Architect, Eve Nnaji, was supposed to build a chair but it all went a bit pear-shaped and it ended up as a bag. Nnaji subsequently ended up founding product design firm 'Even Designed'. She will be holding the 'Even Bag Exhibition' this weekend! It's the first of its kind in Lagos, so head down to Ikoyi this weekend.

Typical, One Man Show

I went to see this yesterday. Abrupt ending and bad regional accent aside, I thought it did a beautiful job of humanising Christopher Alder - the British-Nigerian, Army paratrooper who served in the Falklands War but died in 1998 at the hands of the police, while in police custody.
