Millennials of Lagos!

Who are we?

We are the eyes that pop open in the early hours of the day when the alarm bell rings.

We are the lips that kiss family and friends goodbye as we hurry out of the house for the day’s hustle.

We are the sweaty face in Lagos traffic,the nifty fingers fiddling through the smartphone,

the banter on twitter,

the show-off on instagram,

the savage on Facebook,

the broadcast on whatsapp

…and the voice at the other end of the line trying to make that last minute sale.

We are the change the politicians talk about.

We are the life of the Lagos party.

We are the hustle and bustle at the central business district.

We are the success,the failure and the “i don blow” of the Lagos dream.

We are yesterday’s seed,thriving in the midst of no water and no light.

We are the “kokolets”,the “demons” and the “men are scum”

We are Millennials of Lagos!
