Top 10 Places To Visit in Lagos This Yuletide

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas in advance. Are you in Lagos, Nigeria (there is a Lagos in Portugal) for the yuletide and you are in want of places to visit? I have compiled a list of 10 places you could visit in Lagos, Nigeria this yuletide. They are listed in no particular order. I have been to most of these places and I am looking forward to visiting and revisiting them. After all, all write and no play can be boring as hell.




1.   Elegushi Beach

Elegushi is located off Lekki expressway (off the 3rd roundabout. I think). It is one of my favourite private beaches in Lagos. Not that it is the cleanest or clearest. Nope. But the night life on the beach is spuflix (I wish that was a real word). I would recommend you go in the evening, rather than when the sun is high in the sky.  There’s a N1,000 gate fee/person and N200 parking fee/car.



  1. Lekki Conservation Centre (LCC)

The LCC has a huge tract of wetlands set aside for wildlife viewing, located at kilometer 19 along the Lagos-Epe Expressway. You get started by going through a long nature trial (you’d love this) which leads you into the thick of the forest, and then, to the canopy walkway, and then, to an open recreational spot. The canopy walkway is the longest in Africa. Access fee to the nature trail is N1,000, and another N1,000 to use the canopy walkway.  The last time I was here, I thought I was lost after walking through the forest for over 30 minutes without seeing an “exit route”. It was interestingly scary. I will definitely revisit this place. Continue reading

Revelation at #LiveYourDreams Conference: The reason why most people won’t succeed


So I was at the Live Your Dreams Conference at Terra Kulture over the weekend.While everyone was going there for a million reasons, I went there for just one reason: to be inspired and learn from the best. And oh, I was hoping to see Linda Ikeji too. She was shortlisted as a panellist. I wanted to see those smooth straight legs live and direct   see her for the first time and maybe chat her up during recess. And oh, one more thing; I wanted to meet new Treps (a swaggerlicious word for entrepreneurs). At the end of the day, only two of the three wishes were fulfilled. I heard and learnt from the best and I met some really interesting treps. Linda didn’t show up as at the time I left. Her loss. She could have had my autograph by now.

DSC02101The magnitude of the turn up was very impressive. The hall was actually filled to capacity.MC AK47 was sick. Really really funny dude and his co-anchor, Aderonke Adebanjo was ever sweet. The speakers, Idoreyen Enang, OC Ukeje, Ibrahim Suleiman, Steve Harris, Jimmy, Lanre Olusola etc were the perfect blend. They shared a whole lot of stuff you could never learn in school, not even in Harvard. Before you ask if I’ve ever been to Harvard, errmm…..wait…….

As I left the event, I had a new sense of direction. I mean, boys are BALLING things in this life by using their heads and I have been here dulling away my very big head. For example, Steve Harris revealed how he turned from N20,000 ‘poor’ to N450,000.00 rich ‘overnight’ by  using just his smartphone. He sounded really believable and the method he adopted sounded genuine, so I have no reason to doubt him. Aha! You want to know how he did it, right? Get the video tape of the event. Ask Mr Bankole Williams or Continue reading
