The ingeniously/suggestively-titled ‘What the truck?’ ( thank/blame my editor for that title 🙂 ) is my essay/profile on the fading art of bus (‘molue’) paintings in Lagos, Nigeria.
It was published in Issue 1 (turned out to be the only issue ever published) of the defunct Virgin Nigeria’s inflight magazine, WINGS (2008); and awarded the 2009 CNN/Multichoice African Journalism Prize in Arts & Culture.
