I found myself in Ikotun, an unloved and anonymous part of Lagos. Endless people hustling a living on the street. The noise and the dirt all too familiar..

I liked the sound bite you included with the clip.

About the endless noise and dirt, long ago I wished that Nigeria could tidy up and be orderly. I realised that Nigeria is Nigeria and not Switzerland, Japan or even Namibia or Zambia. That is what people there are prepared to live with, so one just has to learn to accept it. When someone finally decides that is an unacceptable situation, hygiene will sweep away the filth and dilapidation.
