Lagos like many other developed cities in the world were developed by squatters. Robert neuwirth in his book shadow cities, talks about the various slums around the world where squatters has helped build societies and developed economies. They tend to be neglected when everything begin to look up. Lagos Nigeria, Rio de Janeiro Brazil, Kibera Kenya, Mumbai India and a whole lot more are included. In Lagos it can be different because society see squatters as never do well and treat them as rejects. Here at the EKO ATLANTIC where this image was made, some workers who are helping residence of this city develop their environment may never in their life time live here. Even while it is still under construction they are made to sleep outside. We are thereby moved to question how the Government of these countries plan on improving low cost housing for the poor. #everydayafrica #documentaryphotography #contemporaryart #wsjphoto #fotografiadocumental #photojournalism #fotoperiodista #fotoperiodismo #photoreportage #opensociety #bbcafrica #cnnafrica #gettyreportage #foamamsterdam #stern #hausderkunst #kunsthaus #kunst #arthouse #theimageflow #myafrica #insideafrica #africa #reportagespotlight #urbancities #checkoutafrica #wsj #Bloomberg #msnbc

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has launched two new language – Igbo and Yoruba – services on Tuesday for Nigeria and the West and Central Africa region.

A statement issued by the BBC and signed by Marina Forsythe said the new services are part of the largest investment in the BBC World Service since the 1940s and are funded by the UK government. “The Igbo service is mainly for audiences in eastern and South-eastern Nigeria as well as the large Igbo speaking diaspora. “The Yoruba service targets South-west Nigeria, Benin and Togo as well as other parts of the diaspora,” the statement said.

It also said the services are fully digital and will include “exciting short format audio, video, graphics and illustrations”. It also said twice daily, the teams will produce an episode of BBC Minute – keeping people in touch with the world in 60 seconds. “The editorial agenda will reflect not only balanced impartial news, but also a rich mix of trending topics, sports, entertainment, business, health, education and women. “There will be original content through our network of reporters on the variety of stories and issues that matter to local people and resonate across the region,” it said.

It added that digital content created daily for the website and social media platforms will cover a broad agenda with a strong focus on audience interactivity.

In total, 12 services are being launched by the BBC in Africa and Asia.
