Living in Gidi is a collection of experiences from the lives of regular Nigerians who live in Lagos (Gidi). It follows the accounts on the streets, providing insight into this intrigue that is a city. It is written with a lot less seriousness, an irony Lagos would rather I avoided—if it could object. But I can’t make life any tougher than it is for Gidi folks, so these accounts are painted with a brush dipped in a gourd of humor. The book can only hope to be as interesting as the city is. The photos in the pages help project the images the stories are trying to paint.
