THE ULTIMATE LAGOS CITY SURVIVAL GUIDE9:05 pm
Truth be told, living in Lagos can be overwhelming, with a population of nearly 20 million go getters. It's an urban jungle; eat or get eaten! I may be exaggerating but this is one of the toughest cities to make it in, yet it offers a wide array of opportunities. Surviving in this city will be one of the most difficult tasks you will encounter.
Here's what you need to know to survive and thrive in Lagos
1: A reliable next of kin's phone number off by heart.
2: Chicken republic offers #500 meals everyday.
4:The earlier you wake up, the better. You might still get stuck in traffic, but the better.
6: Your network is your net worth. Keep the right company.
7: Always carry some cash, most stores say ATM cards accepted but they really mean we have a POS machine and it isn't working.
8: A danfo bus is a threat to you if you are; driving close to a danfo bus, walking beside a danfo bus or even inside a danfo bus
9: If you happen to be in 1004 and you see your fav celebrity (and you probably will) play it cool.
10: There really isn't anything like Yoruba demons or Igbo angels, just Lagos boys and you should be very weary of them regardless of your gender.
11: If you're walking at night walk briskly, if you walk slowly a danfo bus will hit you. Or you'll get robbed and won't notice till you get home.
12: Don't ever lose yourself. Lagos is an intimidating city with intimidating people, don't lose sight of who you really are while keeping up with the Otedolas.
13: Everyone is in a hurry. Don't waste your time, don't wast anybody else's.
14: Always walk and talk with confidence like you've lived here your entire life.
15: Never ever stop hustling.
I assure you, in no time you too will grow to love our magical city!!
