Description Taiwo Shemede poses for a portrait at the entrance to his room.Makoko, an 18th century coastal settlement, is situated off the mainland in Lagos, Nigeria. This is a story of an ambitious 17 years old young boy, Taiwo Shemede, who was born and lives in this Lagos slum on stilts with his parents and siblings. The hope for an opportunity to play pro soccer not only makes his days more enjoyable, but makes for a tomorrow full of possibilities.(Credit: Adolphus Opara/Twenty Ten/Africa Media Online)
