In Conversation with Kelechi Anabara aka The Facade Nigeria

On this episode, I have a conversation with Kelechi Anabara, founder of The Facade Nigeria. Through The Facade Nigeria, Kelechi has created a forum through which to discuss Nigeria’s colonial history and the colonial architecture of Lagos. Through social media and a podcast, Kelechi shares information on the rich history of Lagos and the individuals that shaped both the city and the country. In this conversation, we discuss the importance of architectural history, the power of digital archives and social media, and how we can work together to preserve our history. 


To find out more about Kelechi’s work, follow The Facade Nigeria on Instagram and Facebook. You can also listen to his podcast ‘Conversations with The Facade Nigeria’ where he discusses the history of Lagos and the people who built the city.
