Destination Lagos: An #Instawalk

Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

Towed with comfy shoes, smartphones and cameras, SMW Lagos attendees went on the Africa You Don’t See photo walk for #TravelAfricaDay. The purpose of the walk was to prove that stories can be found anywhere, even on what may be an ordinary street. Snapshots like these posted on platforms like Instagram tell multiple narratives of Africa.

Photographers Yagazie Emezi and Tom Saater were our guides on the photo walk, or better yet, #Instawalk.

Here are a few photos of our #Instawalk crew captured:
