Profile: Kaye Whiteman

 Last week, 77 year-old Englishman Kaye Whiteman was in Lagos for a public presentation of his book Lagos: A Cultural and Historical Companion. During that trip he attended a session where Lagos’ literati examined the issues presented in the book.

Having produced some of the images used in the book, I also attended and spoke about the choice of the cover photo.

The former editor of West African magazine spoke about the Lagos he experienced in the 1950s and 60s and the changes that have taken place today.
