LCA Film Fest
LCA film fest kicks off this Friday Sept 29, we’ll be sharing some of the films we’re looking forward to watching.
With our love for #Ecowas and road trips it’s only right the first film that catches our attention is Borders (Frontieres) . . . . . . . . . .
Synopsis: “Borders” is the story of four (4) women crossing the borders of Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Benin until Nigeria in order to conduct business.
Adjara is a beautiful Senegalese in the thirty’s. She has been sent by her association to buy goods in Lagos. Emma from Ivory Coast is a widow in her forties. She buys fabric in Bamako and resells them in Lagos. As for Sali, twenty five year old, she is a young Burkinabe girl, shy and naive. She is sent by her fiancé to deliver a parcel in Cotonou. There is also Vishaa from Nigeria. In her fifties, she has moved to Burkina Faso to open a restaurant. She is going to Lagos for her daughter’s weeding.
The four women meet in buses towards Bamako, Cotonou, Ouagadougou to Lagos. During their trip, they discover beautiful landscapes of coastal and Sahelian countries. Nevertheless, the trip is a fighter career. They undergo car breakdowns in stifling heat in the middle of nowhere. They face highway robbers and witness flights between passengers.
But their worst nightmare remains the border crossing. At different borders, they are exposed to great corruption, violence against women and to a dangerous traffic. To survive, Adjara, Emma, Sali and Vishaa are forced to stick together and take care of each other.
Back in their respective countries, the consequences of this trip will change their lives. . . . . . . . . . .

The Lagos City Suya Carnival
The idea was borne out of the need to celebrate Africa, Nigeria and most especially our Lagos using one of the chops that has become a household name across metropolis over several years.
Suya, as we all know, didn’t originate from Lagos but you will all agree with me that the average Lagos street or road has one Suya joint or a nearby Suya Mallam joint just few streets away. Such is the love we have shown this delicacy that has seemingly become part and parcel of Lagos.
A Suya carnival, you might wonder? Well, this is one carnival that isn’t been replicated from anywhere in the world as it has its own origin here in Lagos, Nigeria. Which better way could we have launched such a carnival with such magnitude? Where could we have launched this and when could we have launched the Lagos City Carnival are the questions that ravaged our mind when this idea came to me.
For us, after so many deliberations we concluded that no where other than Lagos is perfect for us to berth with this carnival. And which better way to launch it than the commemoration of the Lagos at 50 celebration with the event rounding it off. Making a 50ft long Suya steak and breaking a record hence putting Lagos state as a whole on the world map isn’t a bad way to launch the event of this magnitude.
Date: Sunday October 1, 2017
Time: 10am – 11.30pm
Venue: Alausa Shopping Mall. Obafalabi Street, Ikeja, Lagos
Get ready Nigeria! The biggest and most inspiring dance show ever is going down this Independence day, October 1 @ the National Arts Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos. It is time to create lasting memories with a mind-blowing dance show that is set to elevate your soul and open your heart to a new dimension of life; a revelation that the eyes of many have been blinded to – one that could change our nation forever. Get ready for ‘Glimpse’, presented by the Spirit of David Gospel Dance Club.
Since 1999, Spirit of David has upheld the mandate of spreading inspiring messages with timely themes of peace, freedom and new beginning, every October 1 to commemorate the Independence Day but this year 2017, there is a twist to the message direction.
This year’s show, Glimpse, has the preoccupation of opening the eyes of Nigerians to the way of love, kindness and respect for each other. The Glimpse movement is set to inspire Lagos, propel Nigeria and influence the world at large to choose the way of love. As little at it may seem, Love comes with great impact and immense benefits. The interpretation is simple: True and lasting social freedom begins with individual acts of love!
According to Segun Lawal, fondly referred to as PSegs, on the vision of Spirit of David, he says, “…to ‘speak’ to our generation, we must learn the ‘language’ of our times. Today, especially among young people, that language is music and dance…and no one else speaks as fluently as we do!
It is going to be awesome. About 100 professional dancers from all parts of Nigeria will hit the stage this October 1, to give you the best experience ever. You have not seen anything like this before.
So, what are you waiting for? Get your tickets now. Register here
