Lagos is statistically the most populous city in Nigeria. Lagos as a conurbation is the largest city in Africa and also one of the most populous in the world. As of 2015, the population of Lagos city was approximately 16 million.
The traditional ruler of Lagos is The Oba, referred to as the Oba of Lagos . The king, howbeit ceremonial and with no political power, is very influential to Nigerian politicians and the people of Lagos.
Lagos state is divided into 37 local government areas, many of them having at least a leader. Though the Oba of Lagos is very popular, there are more than 38 other Obas in Lagos state.
