Episode Summary

Episode 1
Welcome to Lagos offers a unique insight into the realities of living in one of the world's fastest growing megacities. The series opener follows the hardships of those living in the Olusosun rubbish dump which is the workplace for more than 1000 of Lagos' residents who live on the dump sifting through rubbish in a desperate bid to find recyclable materials. In this episode film crews follow the day to day lives of two men, Eric, aka Vocal Slender and Joseph who are keen alchemists, turning rubbish from the dump into gold. Eric aspires to be a singer and Joseph to do well by his family saying, 'If there was a bigger, dirtier, stinkier dump where I could earn more money for my family, then I'd go there to work."moreless
