This holiday has been the best for me so far and I made sure I made the very best out of it. I’ve gotten better at driving at least I can say about very left the beginner stage. And I just want to say a big thank you to my customers. They are just the best. Even the ones that tell me to keep an item for them and then end up not getting back to me. THANK YOU STILL.

Anyway, so I went to Elegushi on the second of January which was a very wrong choice. We ( my friends and I) initially planned on going to Lekki Jakande beach, but they remembered they had a reunion at Elegushi beach so we just had to go there.  you can check out my previous  blog post on Lekki jakande beach here

P.S – I HATE ELEGUSHI BEACH

So we got there and I was alarmed! It was filled with o many people, just like a concert. Just imagine them collecting ₦1000 from over 3000 people just in one day. That’s a total of ₦3million … SHOOT ME!!!!

Anyway, I was actually pissed and irritated because it was filled with so many people, the beach was unkempt and smelly and it just made me sick.

But then the photographer in me came out to life. So I just thought to myself

Why not take pictures ehn?

So I decided to make good use of the crowd lol!

Everyone at Elegushi was so so so and even too happy. People were dancing, playing, eating, and living the life basically it just seemed like everyone in Nigeria was happy.

All in all, I still hate Elegushi beach but I must say I had a really wonderful time with my friends.

And by next week, I’m going to head back to reality (school).😔

I can feel myself doing big things this 2017 and I can’t wait to share it with you all. One wish I really have is to be featured on Guardian life this 2017 and I’m praying and working hard towards that dream and it can be achieved with your help.😊

Hey guys,

I hope you all are doing alright, have you checked out my previous post on what I wore for Eid and one vintage shirt like that here and here. A few of the photographs I captured at the beach were featured on 360 nobs  so you can go check them out . you can also check out my portfolio here

We decided to go do ‘yawo Sallah’ which actually means going out to chill after Eid in Hausa lol.

My  family and I planned on going to Elegushi because it was basically the only beach we knew of  (and because it is always hyped) so off we went!

We got to Elegushi and then the guys at the entrance decided to charge us ₦9000. LOL! We laughed thinking the guy was joking but he wasn’t.Like was he insane , 9k for what? To enter the beach. A natural gift from God and it’s not like they maintain the beach with all the money they extort from the masses.  I was so darn pissed!

Long story short, we left Elegushi because we obviously couldn’t pay that much mind you, we were nine of us in the SUV. The guy’s attitude was just nasty and even if we were to end up paying the cash we wouldn’t have because it was just nasty.

So we decided to head home…

On our way home, we saw a traffic sign indicating that there was another beach in that same area so we decide to check it out and we landed at JAKANDE LEKKI BEACH.

And they didn’t even charge up to ₦5000 and we gladly paid lol. (I still don’t understand why we have to pay though).

We got to the beach and the fun began, tItried to be very careful with the ocean because the last time I went to the beach, I went back home PHONELESS. I wasn’t going  to let that happen to me again.


Jakande beach was fun and I captured so many beautiful people and beautiful moments. and I watched the sunset and it was breathtaking!

 

If I were to go to a beach anytime soon, it’s going to be Jakande Lekki beach. Even though tit’s all The same beach just barricaded. And did I mention how neat it is? Like way neater than that Elegushi everyone is always hyping.

 

I hope you enjoyed this  post and the pictures. And have you ever heard or been to Jakande Lekki beach? Let me know in the comment box below.
