Eko Atlantic is a unique city inside another city reclaimed from the ocean along the coast of Victoria Island in Lagos, Nigeria.

This project aim to solve the shortage of real estate in the fastest growing city of Lagos. Currently reporting a population of approximately 21 million and it is still growing everyday.

World economic forum forecast  that in 100 years from now , Lagos population will increase to approximately 88.3 million people.

This is why Eko Atlantic  is a  great investment (esp. for potential real estate investors) in bridging an economic gap for massive population demand – and also a gateway to emerging markets of the continent. I strongly believe that the  “New Africa” is been lead by Nigeria.

Nollywood Entertainment

New Movie Alert- > Nollywood Movie to watch out for 2019. I was super excited when I was asked to share this with my Minneapolis readers.

"Coming from Insanity " is  a Nigerian Movie centered around a true life story.

The main character is a 12 year-old boy (KOSSI), one of many children trafficked into Nigerian borders from Togo. He worked as a houseboy for the Martins Household in Lagos. However, with his intelligence he  became street smart especially in the area that involved MONEY (like fraudulent activities) as an adult boy. This later landed him in big trouble with the Nigeria agent EFCC who are doing everything to bring him down,

Written and Directed by Akinyemi Akinropo and produced by Ibidolapo Ajayi.

More good news from Nollywood

NextFlix bought Genevieve Nnaji “Lionheart”,  a movie centered around the issue of sexism in Nigeria Firm .

Nollywood gets the opportunity to be streamed globally and gain more exposure about the rich culture of Nigeria.

The world has become so small with the power of digital technology.
