As a foreigner living in Nigeria or a potential buyer wishing to build a new house, you will often find things are not done quite the way you are used to, and buying land is no exception. The first hurdle is understanding the system of land measurements in Nigeria.

These measurements are affected by factors which includes but not limited to, economic investment and development patterns, human and environmental factors which could lead to mass migration and artificial scarcity of lands suitable for development.


America is celebrating the art, music and life of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti with the award-winning Braodway hit Fela! The world is paying homage to the Afrobeat pioneer who died in 1997; rappers are borrowing tunes from his pieces and Afrobeat bands are springing up in different corners of the world. But back here in Nigeria, the only house the man built lies in a terrible shape, with his mementoes falling apart and wasting away.

The property on Gbemisola Street, Ikeja, Lagos is where Fela lived until he was hospitalized. Year after year, pundits have advised that the Kuti kids collaborate with a tourism company and turn the house into a tourist attraction of sorts – the Fela estate can generate huge income through this, and millions of fans from around the world who adore the man, his message and his music, will only be too happy to finally take a tour of his home – especially since the Shrine where he performed, is no more.

I decided to create this thread to document and provide useful information to anyone who has decided to head down the path that my client (love-tosin, a fellow nairalander) did, and build their own house. This will be a true, real life and hopefully day to day as it transpires update.

Before we start I would like to give thanks to all my friends on Nairaland whose advices, critique, suggestions and ideas were instrumental over the years in nudging me towards this decision.
