Water House, Lagos Island

Living in this house on Kakawa Street in the late 1800s was Candido Esan da Rocha, son of a returnee slave and the richest man in Lagos at that time. It was called Water House because he had water piped for him from Iju (Waterworks) to his house on Lagos Island! This was a long distance which only a wealthy man could afford to fund. He sold the water for huge profit to Lagosians. 10% of Lagos population were of Brazilian origin, reason many of the buildings on Lagos Island were built in Brazilian or Portuguese colonial style.
