i-D heads to Lagos to shoot the cool kids of Nigeria's capital, straight up. 

What are you wearing head to toe?
T-shirt by Denim & Supply x Ralph Lauren, Short by Agi & Sam x Topman and adidas sneakers.

Where are you from and what do you do?
I was born and raised in Kaduna. I'm a flight attendant with Virgin and an aspiring writer. My brain is my notepad.

What does it feel like to live in the biggest city in Africa?
Is it weird that this is the first time I've heard Lagos being referred to as that? It feels pretty normal. 

The city is famous for its traffic, how do you deal with it?
That's the bit I avoid. I'd describe myself as 'indoorsy. I could hole up for a couple of days for this reason. 

What’s the most beautiful place in Lagos?
Anywhere I can meet with my friends and have a good time without caring about other people's opinions. I still love the Orchid Bistro and greatly miss Arabica.

Where is the best place to fall in love in Lagos?
I wouldn't know!

Where are the coolest places to shop?
I'm not a big shopper.

Where are the best places to hangout in Lagos?
Spice Route, maybe. I can be a wallflower but have had a few good times here.
