Victor Ehikhamenor - writer, visual artist and newspaper creative director - celebrated his 40th birthday in Lagos today. Music was jumping and spirits were high, so of course the birthday boy had to do a few jigs.
With Ehikhamenor in the image on the right is another image maker, photographer Kelechi Amadi Obi.
I am a writer and arts journalist now based in Lagos. This is a blog on arts and culture. The focus is on Nigeria's art scene, especially her 'Word's Body' - the writers. As and when, we'll also touch on wider African writing, as well as international literature. In short, a saturation of the arts.
