I recently moved back to Festac Town in Lagos after about 7 years away. And in the few weeks i have been here, I’m still trying to come to terms with the changes this once quiet town has undergone. Gone are the days where there where specific parts of Festac where shops and other commercial ventures could be opened. Nowadays, there are bars, hotels, pubs, joints and whatnot in almost every street, avenue and close in Festac town. Why this is so is a story for another day. Despite all my years away, one thing always brought back fond memories of my time in Festac. The iconic block of flats.
