My Lagos Tale

The moment one steps out of Lagos it feels like a new life has begun (a new life really begins). Lagos is the most stressful place I have been, I can’t believe I survived all these years.

I was in Ibadan for a while and my stay was amazing. I enjoyed it there, it is far more peaceful and less populated than Lagos state.

What exactly is the Lagos tale?

I recently came back from Ibadan.I could not recognize Lagos again. I forgot how to live in this crazy place. Traffic is terrible, things are expensive and the pollution has almost killed me.

To top it all I got the worse sort of welcoming from Lagos. I almost got kidnapped, I really don’t want to go too deep into the story so I’d just give a summary. I took a cab from Ojota and I was headed towards Ikeja. I found myself on the way to Oshodi. I cannot tell you how grateful I am that I escaped the drama.

I don’t think I had time to settle before phone calls began to troop in. It was just crazy. I was running from one program to the other and from a friends place to the other. To top it up my mum dragged me with her to the market.

Where my mum dragged me to

My body has not been happy with me.It is seriously demanding a break from all this craze,unfortunately for me it is just impossible. I just want to sleep.

Irrespective of my complain…please feel free to contact me if you want us to work together. I am available.

I know….I’m crazy like that.

I’m crazy like Lagos.
