Photo Essay: Parisian Vibes in Lagos

Lagos is that city, from exchanging business cards at a symposium, crossing paths at a traffic junction, to sharing a drink at a bar in Victoria Island before the rest of the night rest at a strip club. I have never been to Paris, but Chisom Njoku – the project lead on ‘Parisian Vibes in Lagos’ persistently orates how both cities share many hallmarks and lifestyles. Paris is known and loved by the world as the land of berets, macaroons, the Mona Lisa, Le Tour Effeil and boulevards lined with classic architecture, it turns out that it is also a preferred destination for sex. On the other side, the city of shares a part of the DNA, the budding metropolis is a diverse multicultural society, with entrepreneurs, expatriates, creatives, corporates and young people that bump around during the day and cruise the boulevards, food spots, clubs, cafés or drape an arm around their partner on the banks of the Lagoon.

Lagos is indeed the city of aquatic splendor and plenty stranger sex too

‘Parisian Vibes in Lagos’ is a picture series that follows a day in the life of 2 affluent lovers in Lagos. the project retro-paints the otherwise rowdy city of Lagos, Nigeria in a serene and lovey-dovey light. From lush banana island homes, the city’s most expensive neighborhood to luxe destinations in fancy cars, while still head over heels for each other – Chisom attests that the series has a dominant theme of Love, Positive energy, and Luxury and it was for the reason the series was created. Everything that happens in Paris, happens in Lagos (possibly).
The idea behind this project was to show that the city can provide the luxury and exclusivity that would afford lovers a good time and as opposed to Jetting out to Paris to enjoy the romantic setting, you could as well catch the Parisian Vibe in Lagos.
