Photo Reel : Sunrise at Yaba 

Today, after days of staying home without electricity, I finally went out. Even if it was to accompany my mum to the hospital, it’s still something.

I got the chance to take a few pictures and I hope you like them.

Before I put them up, I just want to tell you a bit about Yaba.

Yaba is a really old city/town/settlement in Lagos Nigeria. It has a lot of old houses and beautiful works of architecture and landscaping. These shots were taken on Harvey road.

Yaba is a suburb located in Lagos Mainland LGA, in Lagos State. Institutions of higher learning in the area include Queen’s College, the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research, the Yaba College of Technology, Igbobi College, the University of Lagos, the Federal School Science and Technical College, and the Federal College of Education.

Yaba has one of the busiest market sites in Lagos, known as Tejuosho Market, Nigeria. And directly opposite that market known by many Lagosians is the well known Yaba Psychiatric called as Yaba Left by many.

Yaba is fast becoming one of the go-to places for technology renaissance in Africa, quite like Nairobi in Kenya, with Tech Start ups like, Andela, Cc-Hub and many others impacting the ecosystem for good.
