We had earlier announced the Lagos Chronicles by My Africa Is, an inspiring new documentary series taking viewers beyond the headlines and inside the continent. The series gives an insider’s perspective to Lagos, offering a refreshing view of initiatives of note being launched across the city.

In the video below, My Africa Is caught up with Kunle Adeyemi, the architect behind the Makoko floating school. The floating school was designed to address Makoko’s floading woes, and could potentially serve as a tourism solution for Lagos state.

In the video below, My Africa Is drops in on Bilikiss Abiola, one of the founders of WeCyclers, an outfit that has involved an entire community in recycling plastics, that would usually end up on the streets and gutters of Lagos.
