Lagos is f**king chaos. I’ve been to hundreds of cities in my life but Lagos takes the cake in terms of intensity; it’s hard to imagine a crazier city. It’s overwhelming, frantic and dangerous. To quote a Ghanaian friend: “The only people who survive there are the ones who move fast.” White expats we met there only drive at night with local drivers (armed) in cars with blacked out windows. For some people, it is the world’s biggest hell-hole. That said: I fucking love it! Lagos is intoxicating. The girls, nightlife and everyday excitement gives this looney bin the Naughty Nomad seal of approval.
WARNING: Lagos is not for first timers in Africa.
If you haven’t already, I’d strongly recommend you read my article Sex in Africa 101 before continuing.
In terms of the average girl on the street, Lagos has the best looking girls in West Africa. This may have something to with the fact that 1 in 5 Africans live in Nigeria, and the best bred of 200 million people tend to be concentrated in areas like upper class Victoria Island and Lagos island.
Nocturnal Lagos ladies are crazy, sexy, shameless, ruthless and addictive. Picking up at night in an urban adventure. If you’re a young white guy you will pick up model-type girls like a rock star. But remember -be vigilant with your vagina; choose your girls wisely.
Day time it’s easy to meet girls. Shopping malls on VI are the best place to meet high class chicks. There are plenty of genuine girls around. Universities are a great option too.
If you need a break from the notorious Lagos nightlife – pipeline. This is Africa’s largest city and everyone speaks English. You will be spoiled for choice with the amount of chicks online who’ll gladly meet up.
I would like to add I love Nigerian girls. I’ve dated many of them throughout the years and find them great company, both in and out of the bedroom. Their bodies, their attitudes and their style I rank among the best there is. Furthermore, they are more understanding of non-exclusivity. Thumbs up.
Victoria Island is the place to be for the highest quality women.
This expat hangout might be my favourite bar in all West Africa. The beers are cheap, the crowd is welcoming and the girls are plentiful, eager and gorgeous. It’s got great live music, a dance floor and an atmospheric beer garden. This is the place to be.
If you like Manila Bay in the Philippines you’ll love this place. Open 24/7 with tons of sexy girls. When it hits 4AM and everywhere else closes.. come here. It considered a shoring spot, but fun nonetheless. Facebook page here.

Where to buy marijuana: Akerele around the market is where you get the good ganja. Around African Shrine, Agidingbi, and Oshodi you will also find alot of pot.
Our latest info says go to the beaches. Koramo beach is our little Amsterdam. Nigerians love to get high in front of the ocean and enjoy the view for hours!!!
Marijuana prices: 10 Grams goes fore N400 around $3. Another reporter added: “200 Nara (Nigerian currency) – about $1.50 for 5-8 individually sized “wraps.”
My Lagos Experience
My first day in Nigeria was the most heart-wrenching 24-hour period of my life. The Siege of Lagos nearly killed us (literally). You will have to wait for that one…
