This is the Lagos Atlantic City, a proposed city by the Lagos State Government. Imagine a city where everything works which includes the drainage, power and a serene environment, then this city might likely be a place to be but with a warning, make sure your pocket is well loaded.
According to an earlier post by AutoReportNG, as at 2010, lands are reportedly to cost within $825 to $1660 per square meter. A rep of the company sent this when someone made an inquiry into their lands 9 years ago and she said…
Eko Atlantic City is being built on a planned 10-square-kilometer (3.8-square-mile) stretch of land that’s being reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean, Ronald Chagoury, chairman of South Energyx Nigeria Ltd., said in a May 23 interview in the commercial hub. When the final project is complete, as many as 250,000 people are expected to live in the development, where a three-bedroom apartment could cost almost $1 million, according to online property listings.
“Plots are currently available for sale. Plot sizes start at 2000 square meters and up, and have a starting price of $825 (#302,000) and go up to $1660 (#606,000) per square meter (please note we do accept the equivalent in Naira). Prices are determined by where your land is in location to water.
The first building in this city is Eko Pearl Towers, the first residential development in Eko Atlantic City, is a set of high-rise buildings, privately owned and developed by the leading Eko Pearl Construction Company. The development which is situated about 500 meters away from the financial center of Lagos on Eko Atlantic City, consists of five high rise residential towers, each topped with deluxe penthouse types, two & three bedroom apartments exuding a luxurious home experience with a view of the Lagos coastline.
The Great Wall of Lagos has reached a total length of 6.5km of the planned 8.5km it will eventually achieve.
Eko Atlantic City as a whole has also progressed tremendously. To date over 6,500,000 square metres of land have been reclaimed.
Recently, a group of people went on tour to this place and they got some exciting visuals of this emerging city from the ocean.

Nicki Minaj agrees “Essence” should be song of the year at the Grammys
American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.
Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
