Sometimes a bird’s-eye view is the most comprehensive way to look at something, in this case one of the most popular commercial cities in West Africa.
Most businesses and entrepreneurs from surrounding nations source their merchandise, raw materials in this city as it is the home of the biggest local market in West Africa, Dantokpa.
There is much more to this city than busy roads, big markets and pollution. There is a beautiful side that to Cotonou that is seldom highlighted, so Mayeul Akpovi made this beautiful time lapse, a portrait of Cotonou which more than a thousand words could never describe.
