This is a picture I like very much.
Lagbaja looks unruffled; the baby on the mortar, reaching for the music manuscript is endearing; the people discussing in the corner are very Naija.
The tie-and-dye labullĂ© (curtain) and the (somehow) unsettling wood carvings… mmm… very, very cool.
The pc, the book collection, the stereo, tv… correct!

Bits and pieces of two different cultures blended together to give a warm, deliciously down-to-earth representation of today’s Nigeria.

NB: I think the picture would also make for a great Spot-The-Difference game, don’t you agree?
