My Journey To A Village called AKONKO


I recently came back from a documentary trip I took to a remote village in Ogun state called AKONKO. I was a little taken aback to discover a civilization that survived without electricity and mobile phones. The town survives mainly on the two products its residents produce: Garri & palm oil. My documentary isn’t concluded yet but here are a few pictures that depict life in a village of 300+ residents. Hopefully you’ll recognize me in some of the pictures. More to come. Enjoy.
