2. Favourite place youโ€™ve ever visited?

Ah, this is hard to think of but if I had to choose, it’ll be an art gallery in the affluent Ikoyi neighbourhood in Lagos. The Nimbus Art Gallery featured danfo aesthetics and I’ll totally give anything for a Yellow of Lagos expression.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t spend the day because I had to visit six other art galleries with my friend. Follow our recent adventure below.

3. A blogpost you wish was read by more people?

Though it’s acquired over fifty comments and counting, I’ll like if everyone could share their city perspective in this curated blogpost – SURVIVING COVID-19: SHOULD YOU BE IN LAGOS TRAFFIC RIGHT NOW?

In it, I discuss the first phase of lockdown relaxations in Lagos state, how transport workers have to obey a set of new guidelines and the issue with social distancing at bus stations.

Kindly give it a shot.

4. What is your dream?

If I said to be successful it’ll be too vague because that could to be in terms of family, wealth, relationships, influence and so much more.

So, my dream is to fulfill my God given destiny.

5. Do you think Pineapple belongs on Pizza?

I’m not a pizza kinda guy but nope! Pineapple doesn’t belong anywhere near this perfect Italian masterpiece.

        Thanks again! Iโ€™m planning to have another blog post about it but I think itโ€™ll be in the next month. Self-hosting so far for me has been really good. I recently got accepted to Google Adsense and started earning a few dollars.
