Jaan, known for his gravity-defying feats worldwide, added a new chapter to his adventure book with the ‘Perfect Lagos Selfie slackline project. The first Jaw-dropping sports event ever in Nigeria.

High Above the Hustle and Bustle in a daring display that left onlookers spellbound, Jaan, a three-time Slackline World Champion, traversed a highline strung from the Sterling Bank Headquarters in Marina to the Onome oil rig at 350 meters long and 60 meters high skimming the clouds above the newly commissioned Blue Line Rail.

This high-wire act not only captured Lagos’s skyline in all its glory but also Roose’s unparalleled skill flair for
the extraordinary.

A Sky-High Selfie Like No Other The ‘Perfect Lagos Selfie’ was more than just a walk in the clouds; it was a spectacle, a flirtation with the winds, and a wink at the city below.

Following his record-setting walks in Kenya’s Samburu County and Qatar’s Katara Towers, Jaan’s Lagos leap was a blend of artistry and audacity, a testament to what happens when human potential and perseverance come together.
