Lagos is one of Africa’s largest and busiest cities with a population in excess of 14 million people. Until 1991, Lagos was Nigeria’s capital and it still remains its most important city in terms of its economy and culture. Lagos started life as a small Yoruba settlement and port – the city itself now covers several large islands spread over an enormous lagoon.

In the 1400s, the Portuguese used Lagos as a trading post for the slave trade until the British put a stop to it in the late 1800s and took control of the local trade and industry. In 1960, Nigeria gained its independence and the city of Lagos started to boom.
