#Commercial bike seriesMost local and road side “pick-up” or “drop-off” parks in nigeria have one thing in common. You always see commercial bike riders waiting for potential customers or dropping someone at the park.

Walking into my frame

  
An aged security man usually called “Olode” in Yoruba language was looking around a recently burnt truck in amazement and he walked just into my frame.

Underage hawkers during school hours

  
While on my normal personal Photowalk today in Papalanto, Ogun State this afternoon, I sighted so many underage hawkers roaming about with different goods for sale during school hours. I felt burdened and questioned why a 12 year old will abscond school. But to my surprise, one of them I chatted with said he loves working than schooling. Another said he lost his parents and had to help his guardian in her business to raise funds for school fees. Among the ones I saw today are these beautiful four I like you to see. They need your help.

Nigeria Everyday

 Hi everyone. 

I started a documentary series last month particularly to show the world what happens here in Nigeria everyday. The page title is @NigeriaEveryday on Instagram. It is the first child of the Stories Of Nigeria (check on facebook and instagram), a documentary project to tell the beautiful stories of Nigeria. Check it out and follow the flow. 

A book will be published soon when all modalities are settled. It will definitely be a world class piece for this grneration of art collectors and posterity.

Creatively Yours,

Tolu Oluwapojuwo

Stories of Nigeria – #Hawking series

  
#hawking series

These guys hawk iced cream, yogurt and iced softs as retailers from direct producers and wholesalers. They move around all working hours and sometimes, while they still have stocks, might hawk till night just to sell all they have in stock for the day. 

I got this image during one of my personal evening photowalks late 2015.

Kids during fun time along Ikorodu road, Lagos State  
Their innocence and freedom is a trust the leaders MUST not thread on in their greediness and selfishness. These are the future of Africa, and we must do our very best to lead and teach them right. 

It is known that kids’ heart are like slates. It reads and wirks on whatever is written on it. 

My question is “what would the child around you read from you?”
