There were a lot of creatives on the carpet, but these 5 stood out to me.

5 DAYS IN MOROCCO

Hi guys.

The first part of my long-awaited vlog (per my family and friends) is finally here!
I traveled to Morocco in April and visited 4 cities— Casablanca, Marrakech, Fes, and Chefchaouen. I cannot begin to describe how wonderful my experience was! Though I really hoped to visit the Sahara Dessert— to finally see a place I have heard my whole life— there was time constraint, and so I plan to return in the nearest future.

The first part of the vlog highlights Ella and I's run-around in Casablanca after arriving and realizing I had forgotten my wig [lol]. I had looks I wanted to shoot with, but that couldn’t happen, and so my Airbnb host, Cristina took usI to the “African market” where a quick wig was made for me. After that, we strolled through the Medina, visited the courthouse, Hassan II Mosque, and ended the night with a lovely dinner at Rick’s Cafe. 
The following morning, Cristina’s driver took us to the train station where we caught a 4-hour ONCF train ride to Marrakech. 

I have attached a screenshot of the travel itinerary I made since most people asked how I knew how to navigate between cities. I researched.






Stay tuned for the vlogs to follow:

A visit to Fes & Chefchaouen

MY TRIP TO LAGOS, NIGERIA


This is my first vlog/video of the year and while it was put out later than anticipated, I would like to point out that a lot of activities were not filmed because I wanted to have fun and explore the city I had been away from for 11 years. So I decided to visit Lagos because why not? I'd put off this trip for years and after I got the green light from work (early November), I planned my two-weeks vaca. I wasn't very courageous with the thought of traveling by myself. And since I didn't want my movement to be restricted, I chose not to stay with extended family as families tend to worry a lot- as they should.

Let me tell you that it was somewhat nerve-wrecking knowing that I would be in a hotel by myself, as I'd hoped and prayed no one observed and set me up or something (I've seen movies and read stories, OK? Lol). I lodged at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Victoria Island. Security was on point.

I did a lot of meet-ups with friends including those I hadn't seen in years; folks from America, and those I met within a short period. Getting from point A to B via Uber was very convenient. I spent most of my time on the island because everything was within close proximity. I got to party like a Lagosian (sort of), but I could only hang briefly because illness set in. 

When I wasn't dining at the hotel, I visited Utopia, Kilimanjaro, and The Place. I also ate once at White House restaurant in Yaba.
As far as clubbing went, I partied at Club 57, DNA, Quilox, Escape, and SIP.
