Lagos Carnival 2015

20115-Lagos-Carnival-16

A multicoloured tidal wave of dancing people flooded the streets of Lagos for this year’s Lagos Carnival. Lagosians’ and foreign tourists thronged the streets for the Lagos Carnival 2015. Guests from all walks of life and youths watched with excitement as the different groups and floats representing different areas and groups participated in a colourful carnival procession amidst cheers and applause by the appreciative audience. In their thousands, with each cortege representing a different district of the capital – ikorodu, Yaba, agege, Obalende, Mushin and the others, people converged on Tafawa Balewa Square where the festivities culminated. The hip-hop beat of the processions mingled with the drums and brass of an orchestra perched on a trailer truck about 10 meters long and with the trumpets, sirens and whistles of the organizers. Adorned with feathers, hats and masks, their faces made up and shimmering with glitter, young men and women plunged into choreographed and synchronized dance routines in the heat of the sweltering sun. ‘People are so interested, they love it’, said Abu, a policeman whose automatic rifle was slung back over his shoulder. Everyone is happy to see this, we are butterflies! Yelled Shade, a young student in the middle of a cortege waiting for its turn to leave. Kenneth, a Sierra Leonean resident has chosen to become a woman for the day, with a lipstick, fake breasts and a fake bottom, a wig, a glided skirt and his matching scarf, he sought out his companions in the middle of the street. The Lagos Carnival is one that leaves a great feeling and we capture the glitz and glamour in this piece.
