This year, Lagos, one of the largest city in Africa turns 50. When its residents were asked what they think of Lagos, these are what they had to say; Diversity, Chaotic, Tropical, Stride, Fun, Hippy, Congested, Hustle, Traffic, Fast, and boisterous. Lagos with its fast growing economy is a city with unbound opportunities that welcomes people of different race and ethnicity, offering everyone and anyone a chance to succeed.
To celebrate Lagos at 50, the Governor of Lagos State; His Excellency Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode through the ministry of Tourisms, Arts and Culture, alongside Terra Kulture Arts and Studios commissioned Art installations and monumental projects across Lagos.
Eko Tag is a platform focused on revisiting the great moments of Lagos, reviving the history of Lagos and documenting the current happenings while celebrating Lagos at 50. In this light, the platform provides the appropriate support and projection of the art installations and monumental projects taking place in commemoration of Lagos at 50. The featured art above, projected on Eko Tag platform, was created by the renowned Graffiti Artist Osa Seven, who is the youngest of the selected artists working the art installation/monumental projects across Lagos. This beautiful mural and installation can be found on the Law school wall on Ozumba Mbadiwe road, Victoria Island, Lagos. The artwork, when completed, would reveal the National Art Theatre, Aro Meta (the statue of the three capped chief that welcomes commuters into Lagos via the Lagos-Ibadan expressway), graffiti tag that says “LAGOS” and installation of Keke Napep as a symbol of Lagosians always on the move.
Eko Tag has Kuma Nation as its official Art Partner, First City Monument Bank as the official Sponsor and The Guardian Nigeria as the official media Sponsor.
