As the commercial capital of the most populous black nation in the world, the city of Lagos is not without its fair share of colourful idiosyncrasies.

Between the constantly blaring horns and the street hawkers who sell everything from mobile phones to condiments for a steaming pot of soup, there are several things that set this fast-paced city apart from anywhere else in the world.
