Standing on the veranda of the lower deck of our houseboat which had been carefully moored on the banks of Sambreiro River, somewhere between Nkpor and Ilelema…

I’ve been to many top-class restaurants in Lagos, but Bogobiri blew me off my coast…sailed me atop blissful waters of satiating ambiance and invigorating aroma of dainty delicacies… with interiors and exterior set in a stylish medley of artistic yet bohemian ingredients…it was as though I dined in a restaurant-museum.   The soaring sun gently…

The Lagos You Don’t See: A Whitespace, Ikoyi, where we connected back with an ancient Nigeria

The Lagos You Don’t See: A Whitespace, Ikoyi, where we connected back with an ancient Nigeria

In a two-storey building posed on the sands of Ikoyi, Resides a white space, hidden yet open to you and me, A space, thought we, would be empty, Just one step in, and swallowed we were, deeper into its belly, Thrown back, drawn back in history, We saw a Nigeria we missed, Oh Yes! We…

Yenagoa Ox-bow Lake: The lake that stole my heart!

Yenagoa Ox-bow Lake: The lake that stole my heart!

Still stood the skies above Yenagoa, Not in fear of heights, But in awe of a pristine wonder. Here I stand at ease, Above me soars a bow-shaped moon, Beneath me sprawls a bean-shaped mere.   To my left and right spread an animated glass whose distant shores form a bow, and its mystifying beauty…

Onikan National Museum, Lagos: No Cameras Allowed but I snuck mine in.

“He-He-He…I pray the spirit of wàká and wanderlust won’t lead me into wàhálà one day o!…” Nigerian Museums ban the use of cameras within their premises, but I broke the rules at the National Museum in Onikan, Lagos.

Like the cascades of Olumirin Falls, streams of sweat trickle down my animated face. Like the sedating vigor of emu ògùrò, an aura of…
