Lagos partners with Red Bull to portray the megacity splendor
By Ralph Tathagata
In a project designed to showcase the beauty of a megacity, the Lagos State government and the Red Bull team have collaborated through the Lagos Safety Commission to portray the beauty of the state.
The stunt initiative tagged “Perfect Lagos Selfie” witnessed Jaan Roose, an Estonian slack liner and Guinness World Record holder walk from Sterling Towers, Marina Lagos, to the Onome Rig.
A drone video showed Roose walking on a rope across the bridge and the train tracks at CMS Bus Stop in Lagos on Thursday. He took the photo from the Onome Rig as a means of showcasing the beauty of the state.
Sharing photos, Senior Special Assistant on New Media to the governor, Jubril Gawat, said via his X handle: “Red Bull is trying to get the Perfect Lagos Selfie with Jaan Roose from Sterling Towers, Marina Lagos, to the Onome Rig.
“Jaan Roose is an Estonian slack liner and Guinness World Record holder.
“Slack Lining is a sport that can be a balance training, recreation and a moving meditation.
“This project is to showcase the beauty of Lagos State and the Red Bull team is working together with Lagos State Government through the Lagos Safety Commission.
“Stay Tuned for the Perfect Lagos Selfie.”
Many Lagosians observed that Roose started from the rooftop of Sterling Bank at Marina and had a drone capturing his movements until he made it to the rig.
