Lagos a.k.a Lasgidi, the City of Grind is truly a city like no other. From the chaos of the black and yellow buses to the trading happening in almost every corner you turn to. From the beautiful architecture that defines the scenery of the city to the ever-angry sun that won’t stop shining. From the colourful tail lights from the traffic jam during rush hour to the rising smoke from suya and sharwama spots at night; Lagos is indeed the city that never sleeps.

It appears everyone is always in a hurry. In a hurry to get to work and back, in a hurry to hang out and party with friends. Even when relaxing, it seems the time is in a hurry too.

Smartphone brand OPPO mobile, in collaboration with celebrity photographer, Anny Robert, decided to embark on a photography project to show what people are up to when the sun goes down in Lagos.

The concept was simple; Anny Roberts took us on an amazing photo-series journey through the lives and times of young Lagosians, leading different lives in their diverse activities from 8 pm to 1 am in Lagos, using the amazing 48+5MP camera of the OPPO F11 Pro as the official photography instrument.

OPPO claims the F11 Pro can comfortably replace the average DSLR when they launched and they attempted to prove this. Here are a few pictures that were taken with the F11 Pro smartphone camera (without filters or edits):

A young man getting a haircut at the barbershop by 8 PM.

A freelancer meeting with a client at a local bar by 9 PM.
Hanging out with an old flame at a local pub by 10 PM.
Karaoke with a stranger at 11 PM.
Waiting for an Uber by ‘Club O clock’ (12 Midnight)
Dropping bae off at 1 AM.
Video calling fiancée in another time zone by 2 AM.

According to the Public Relations Manager of OPPO Nigeria, Joseph Adeola, OPPO is committed to delivering world-class products that solve the problems of the average Nigerian. Quality and standards will never be compromised, he emphasized.

Anny Robert also admitted amidst beaming smiles that, “What is most impressive is the fact that this photo series proves the brilliant portrait in low light claim of the OPPO F11Pro to be true, as it exceeds all expectations of a phone and competes conveniently with my DSLR”.
