The moment I found out about On Becoming, I knew I had to read it. I guess by its true definition, I am a fan of Toke. Not one of those off the wall crazy fans but I admire her and her career. I’ve watched her videos on YouTube and follow her on Snapchat and she seems to be an amazing person who is always happy, living in light and grounded in faith. To read about what she has endured in her life and how she was able to overcome it was interesting.
Disclaimer: The encounters may not be so great but Lagos is a great place. This post is not to bash Lagos and its people but simply to share some encounters I’ve had in Lagos especially as a sort of newbie.
NYSC was definitely an interesting year for me and the first time that I can say I truly experienced Lagos. I properly experienced Lagos transportation, dealt with agberos/area boys and went to the market randomly. From that year alone, I have a lot of stories.
You may have seen and heard this dozens of times but sincerely, 2016 was not the best year. It’s a contender for one of my worst. Honestly, if I didn’t have my immediate family and a few friends around, it would have been worse than it actually was and that’s not taking into account the major events that happened globally. In comparison with what others went through, I am definitely grateful that it wasn’t too bad.
