LAGOS


Lagos; a lovely city
city of warmth
city of Joy
city of strong expression
city full of free minds
city of people that are ready to improvise

Lagos; the heart beat of it's nation: Nigeria
The center of excellence
the state of commerce.
A state strong like its nation
Great like it's continent: Africa
A state occupied by people
full of love
kindness and strength

People of great smiles
and great heart
Great Lagos
Great Nigeria
Great Africa

    Ys Abisoye, Lagos is a city where people are ready to improvise, where poeple are full of smiles. Not so many people like Lagos, the go-slow traffic especially; but Lagos is all drums and dance. This is sotrue, a good write, Abisoye, wonderful to be celebrating Lagos. (Report) Reply
