These Polaroid Portraits Capture the New Wave of Nigerian Cool

Shot by Prince Aday, catch a glimpse of your favorite culture shifters kicking it in Lagos.

December reigns supreme in Lagos, Nigeria.

Arguably the best time to visit, within Lagos exists a party that never ends. In a day, you'll find many creatives, musical and visual artists visiting numerous events. And with something happening every night, you never know what to expect.

Here are 20 candid polaroid portraits I shot featuring leading lights from the world of music, fashion, and millennial creatives. From Wizkid, Tekno, Skepta, Ugo Mozie, DJ Cuppy, Stephanie Coker and more, there thrives a new generation—with a whole new set of values.


This new wave of Nigerians are about shifting culture, rather than sticking to traditional norms.
