Life House on 33 Sinari Daranijo Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, is fast becoming the place to be. The folks at the Life House are doing amazing things. There's a Ghariokwu Lemi exhibition next week, as well as music by Fatai Rolling Dollar and Fela collaborator Duro Ikujenyo to coincide with the Fela Musical bursting onto the Lagos stage.
The Life House hosted the Women Rule! readings for International Womens Day, featuring Toni Kan, Simi Dosekun, Bibi Bakare-Yusuf and myself - event held on March 12, photos later.
Lots of programmes to interest the artistic and cultured. Among the most exciting weekly events at the Life House are the free film screenings on Thursday evenings. Ousmane Sembene's feminist wonder Faat Kine, 3 short films by Chika Anadu and the Edith Piaf biopic La Vie En Rose - are among the lovely films that have been shown.
And tomorrow, it's City of God. Film lovers should arrive early for the 7.45pm screening.
