Metropolitans: Nana Banful, IT Professional

I have… lived in London most of my life and guess what, I love London. There is so much energy here. You look around and it is so diverse that you can pick up trends just by looking around.

The area in London I call home is… Charlton. I’ve moved to the Southeast in the last 6 months and being next to Greenwich is pretty cool. Whenever, I leave the area for a while, it’s like fresh air when I come back.

I’ve got to have a meal at… Taste of Raj. It’s a really nice Indian restaurant in Blackheath.

I tend to get my threads from… Jaeger, Aquascutum and Cos. I like quirky T-shirts. I once had a nice blue t-shirt that had the logo, “Make us a brew”.

To enjoy London’s nightlife, you should… try Matsuri in St James, a yummy Japanese restaurant. Working in the City, I would often go to local bars, but they’re  not the greatest – I’d rather dine out than drink out.

If I was mayor, I would… also allow cars  in bus lanes during the day and have them out of the bus lanes during the peak time times when folks are going home from work.

My favourite spot to check out art is… Saville Row. I like the concepts that visual merchandisers come up with when they design their windows. I like that kind of art and think it’s pretty cool.

I’d kindly tell a tourist to… keep the noise down on public transport; it’s bad enough not understanding the language but when it’s louder than everyone else’s, not cool.

The thing I miss when I leave London is… the pace! In London, there is always somewhere to go, something to do! So I am on the move even when window browsing.

My soundtrack to London would be:

Bongo Jam  by Crazy Cousinz – Having your headphones on with this song in the morning will get you to work in no time.

Thank God it’s Friday by R.Kelly -We all love the Friday, when we can dress down to go to work and then chill out when we finish work.

It’s a London thing by Scott Garcia – Reminds me of the pace of London. We like to be on the move.
