Nigeria’s 50th Independence Anniversary: Lagos Stories


TV time again. After the abomination that was “Welcome to Lagos”, here is another BBC documentary about Lagos. This one is a little more balanced though and features the good AND the bad: interviews with Lagos State’s reforming Governor Babatunde Fashola, as well as visiting the poor areas of Ajegunle.  Thankfully the hostess is a Nigerian and it is very much Nigerians telling their own stories in pidgin etc. Great scenes and dialogue with Okada riders. :-)
