Lagos Life, London Living by Bobo Omotayo #ThrowbackThursday



Bobo Omotayo’s 2011 ‘coffee table styled’ book ‘Lagos Life, London Living’ was brought to life visually by an amazing team of renowned creatives. His search for some of the best artists in Nigeria lead him to include the artistic work of international Nigerian illustrator Karo Akpokiere, New York based graphic designer Osione Itegboje, Pop Art illustrator Gbolahan Adams and acclaimed photographer Folarin Shasanya.

‘Renaissance Man’ and author Bobo Omatayo penned the anthology of short stories from his personal experiences living between Nigeria and the UK. Using Lagos as a backdrop, the book focuses on ‘his various encounters through work, love, and social circles since his relocation which makeup as the backdrop for these Lagos-life based observations turned ‘tales’.‘.
