  Lagos. Famously known as the most populous city in Nigeria; it’s the second (2nd) fastest growing city in Africa and the    
  seventh (7th) in the world.    
       
  With a population of 21 million, Lagos has presently taken its place as the largest city in Africa.    
       
  Originally inhabited by the Awori subgroup of the Yoruba people, Lagos is a metropolitan area which originated on islands    
  separated by creeks, such as Lagos Island, fringing the southwest mouth of Lagos Lagoon while protected from the Atlantic    
  ocean by long sand spits such as Bar Beach, which stretch up to 100 kilometers.(82 miles) east and west of the mouth. From    
  the beginning, Lagos has expanded on the mainland west of the lagoon and the conurbation, including Ijeja (which is the    
  capital). Some suburbs include Ikorodu, Epe, and Badagry, and more local councils have recently been created, bringing the    
  total number of local governments in Lagos to 57 (this includes Local Community Development Areas or LCDA’s).    
       
  Lagoas is famous throughout Africa for its music scene. Lagos has given birth to a varety of styles such as Nigerian hip hop,    
  highlife, juju, fuji and Afrobeat. Lagos is also the center of the Nigerian movie industry commonly reffered to as “Nollywood”.    
       
  Lagos, subsequent to the re-modernization project achieved by the administration Governor Raji Babatunde Fashola , is    
  gradually becoming a major tourist destination, being one of the largest cities in Africa and in the world. Lagos is currently    
  taking steps to become a global city.

  lagos arguably has put itself on the international map as a ‘Must See City’.
