I MISS THE EVER BUZZING STREETS OF LAGOS; OH, BRING BACK MY LAGOS!

I MISS THE EVER BUZZING STREETS OF LAGOS; OH, BRING BACK MY LAGOS!

IG@OGEFASHBLOG.

After about three weeks of staying indoor and just staring at the four corners of my room; I decided to step out.

I took a stroll to my temporary photographer’s house to retrieve the pictures for upcoming spotlight. Of course, I had to trek because there were no vehicles and Ogefash doesn’t have a car for now.

As I trekked from one street to another, what I saw in all honesty, were streets void of people, cars, activities and so on. Each street now looks new to me; a shadow of it former self now.

No doubt, the outbreak of coronavirus has taking its toll on the ever blazing and buzzing “Center of Excellence” also known as Lagos State.

My people, if you know Lagos wella as in if you know Lagos properly, you would agree that there is nothing on the low about the state. There is no dulling among the inhabitants. The people who dwell there are so full of life. Over excitement, over activity, over busy, over crowded, over gbogbo e (everything) are synonymous to Lagos. It is a place of non-stop buzzing, whether it is noise to some people or not.

Oh coronavirus please go away!

Ever buzzing Lagos, please come back, ever buzzing Nigeria please come back, ever buzzing America please come back, ever buzzing countries all over the world please come back cause I really miss all the buzzling!

Ogefash's Styl

Ogefash blog is also the first to translate songs, interprete and give a full detailed analysis about music and artistes in Nigeria, Africa and America before other blogs started emulating her style. While other blogs provided just music lyrics alone, we took it higher by not only providing lyrics, but translating, interpreting and analyzing as well. It is also the first blog to give detailed analysis of adverts. Interestingly, Ogefash blog also known as Ogefash Photo Blog is the first blog all over the world to blog with lots of interesting pictures to support all articles.

I only keep people I can call more than a friend!" Ogefash has an affinity for TV reality shows. In 2018, she represented Nigeria in the PanAfrican TV reality game show "The Maltavator Challenge" powered by Nigeria's number one malt drink packed full of energy giving vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6;Malta Guinness.
