Mini Documentary, Lagos

NCN in partnership with LASRAB is proud to showcase a mini documentary that highlights key cultural history of Lagos state, Nigeria. This video speaks to colonial and important landmark periods in Lagos state history.

The short documentary was created with the aim to put on the global map the true history of Lagos state that will hopefully create cultural awareness for current and future generations of Nigeria diasporas but also for anyone keen to learn more about the illustrious and vibrant Lagos State history.

The hope is that with this video, an interest in learning more about Lagos or Nigeria is sparked!
