THISDAY Style - - NEWS - BY FUNKE BABS-KUFEJI

On his tour of West Africa, Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales vis­ited Nige­ria and spent two days vis­it­ing Abuja and La­gos. In La­gos, he was hosted at the Bri­tish Coun­cil in Ikoyi where Bri­tish Coun­cil Coun­try Di­rec­tor, Lucy Pear­son and a troupe of indige­nous dancers and drum­mers wel­comed His Majesty. Prince Charles then met with a host of young en­trepreneurs from the dig­i­tal, mu­sic, fash­ion, film and creative in­dus­tries. He also viewed some Art and fash­ion ex­hi­bi­tions by Nige­rian artists and de­sign­ers.

After this, a cock­tail at the res­i­dence of the Deputy Bri­tish High Com­mis­sioner was held in his hon­our where he was shown the 1950 bronze sculp­ture of Her Majesty the Queen of Eng­land sculpted by renowned artist Ben En­wonwu and pre­sented by his son Oliver En­wowu. His Majesty was also in­tro­duced to mem­bers of the Nige­ria Com­mon­wealth Walk­way Com­mit­tee and a num­ber of Nige­rian politi­cians, cap­tains of in­dus­tries and ti­tans of the cor­po­rate world.
