I have missed everyone here. One little ant entered my ear who’s up for that story? I’m fine now. I hope y’all are good.
I want to introduce a new section to the blog here I will just let my fingers type freely. I hope you like it. So let’s unveil Scribble. Yay!!
In today’s post I will be scribbling about Lagos!
So I have never been to Lagos, not even the shore the farthest I have been is Benin. Y’all know how Lagos is a country on its own with its own mind!
It seems like everyone has been to Lagos so if you want to sponsor your girl. *I’ll be waiting *
From the books, articles, movies and stuffs I have seen, I think I can tell a friend about Lagos.
Here’s the story :
• Yellow buses
This is the danfo and highlight of Lagos, the buzz and fuss arena, the place where you mentally have to be alert knowing when to be a polished Nigerian, a casual one or a crazy one.
Someone told me that you don’t answer calls in danfos, just listen!!
You be trying to recharge your phone and someone at your back already did fastest fingers.
The preachers that will sell manpower later!
The amebos that will tell you to scroll back to the 1st photo.
Oh the ojuelegbe conductors that will tell you to jump off a moving bus while handing your change off to you!
Lagos won’t be complete without the active ingredient traffic!
Banky W did a video shoot at a very awkward hour because that is when it seemed nobody was on the road.
I was once stuck in a 20 min traffic and someone inside the bus was cussing , a young Corp member just told him to be grateful. “this is nothing, I spent 6 hours in Lagos traffic last week”
The height of it is you can’t doze off else maybe you would walk home in panties.
Everyone is always in a hurry, people wake up at awkward hours to beat traffic. Nobody waits for nobody to cross the damn roads!
Lagos has somehow clearly distinguished the area for the haves and haves not!
You hear of mainland and island!
Banana island housing celebrities, Admiralty way : maybe that’s a business district!
You have to see “last flight to Abuja ” the guy was in the car making a call while a guy just casually collected the phone from his ear and walked away!
Everyone is minding their business
Or you have to see “picture perfect ” Kunbi couldn’t leave her car for she feared she might just meet the frame work the next day!
It’s a business district and no one ever goes into a major market casually hanging a small bag on the shoulder. They would fix you in your place!
• Baby Boys /Girls
It seems most boys/girls living the baby boy/girl lifestyle seem to be in Lagos.
From “fifty , lekki wives, husbands of lagos”. All living the competitive life!
Oh there’s a party next weekend I need new designers stuff!
I think I once saw a bill of a night club on social media, it was hilarious! Clubs are a major thing in Lagos!
They go to chill out after a stressful week! No dulling!
Bukas are also popular. Iyabasira stew ati ewedu!
There’s always food.
The gorgeous Eko suites! how every event looks fabulous in there!
Cinemas ☑ latest movies!
Most celebrities have moved to Lagos while some complain about the busyness of Lagos, some are actually living the life of the city!
Most people have seen celebrities because Lagos!
Like you know, Lagos is located at the extreme of the Nigerian map. Most things are first shipped into Lagos before they are dispersed to other states.
Is your business BIG and you don’t have an outlet in Lagos? Check again!
I feel like anyone who attended Unilag and the likes, usually have a mind of entrepreneurship. Like they already started something in school.
Most people are attending events and that may mean opportunity!
I think Lagos gives someone a business ground to stand on. Yes Admist all competitions.
Lagos is a city that never sleeps
Lagos is Beautiful, Active and Alive!
I hope to go there soon and maybe when I’m there my view might change!
Funfact: Lagos is the smallest but most populous state in Nigeria.
Lagos used to be the capital of Nigeria.
