The Colour Of Lagos

Las-gidi, Eko-Ile, No man’s Land, Africa’s New York; my city has a lot of names. Yaba, Ikorodu, Lekki, Badagry, Ajegunle; my city has a lot of personalities. We see in colour, we dream in colour; our world is a world of vibrant and mad colours. What is the colour of Lagos? I know the colour…

I went to a supermarket on a Sunday morning to buy some groceries. While putting my items away in the boot of my car, one marketer who was distributing fliers said “Good morning, please give this to Oga or Madam.” I was shocked. I replied, “Oga or Madam?
