Lagos Must Prosper
Lagos is simultaneously the love of our lives and the bane of our existences. We dance at a rotating set of nightclubs, gather at art exhibit openings and literary readings, see each other at the same lavish birthdays, weddings and christenings, and go to surprisingly nice beaches not far outside of the city. We also overpay for the same generators because there is no power, overpay for the same imported food and drinks and overpay for the same apartments and houses because of that power problem. But Lagos’s energy is addictive: despite how much it can frustrate you, its hustle and creativity are stimulating. People do not beg often. You will complain here; you will also accomplish some of your finest work.
