Life in Lagos: Survival Guide
So peeps living in Lagos.
Gather round, I have gist.
Do you always get surprised looks when you tell people you live in Lagos?
I mean if I had a dollar for every time I heard ” you live in Lagos?, Wow…I’ve never been there..how do you guys live there?” I’d have enough money to keep me stocked in hair and skincare products for the rest of my life.
So it hit me..
Why don’t I make a survival guide for those who plan to live in Lagos someday.
1 Be On The Alert
Or in simpler terms. “Shine your eye“. Lagos is a city of opportunities, and full of those with an eye for grabbing opportunities, doesn’t matter what the opportunity is…swindling you,etc.
So you have to be very careful so you don’t get robbed. Keep your eyes on your surroundings.
I once saw someone knock a person’s phone out of his hands and try to run away with it.
2:People will be Rude.
It’s busy, busy in Lagos. People are constantly on the move so don’t get angry if you’re shoved, shouted at the moment you leave your house. As a popular saying goes ” I no come Lagos to count bridge”. So take it all in with a smile.
3: Night life is a no no.
Night life is fun and all in Lagos but trust me, if you’re new…it’s not your scene… Things do go wrong at night in Lagos.. you’d best stay at home.
4: Generate Your Hustle.
AKA double your hustle, no time to check time in Lagos. Everyone is trying to make ends meet in Lagos so you find people doing their best to earn..so except you’re doing a backstroke in the pool of wealth. I suggest you get to it.
There are a lot of tips. But these stand out the most for me.
Most places in Lagos aren’t always ghetto and stuff, but you need some guidelines in lag.
What do y’all think.
