Everyone In Lagos Is Just Razz

Lagos, AKA the economic capital of Africa, Lagos, the place the Nigerian dream is made, Lagos, where civilization in Nigeria starts and ends is just unapologetically razz and filled with thugs.

No matter who you are, whether a CEO or a bus driver, if you have spent at least 3 years in Lagos, you are a razz human being with no class. And do you know the funny part about all these? When in an event on the Island, everyone is all posh and speak with British accents but immediately they find their way to the mainland they begin to slam buses and fight with conductors. Also let’s not forget the constant screaming and shouting.

The Noise in Lagos is too much, I mean come on! and for those who go through Oshodi everyday, you need to see a therapist ASAP, cause only God knows the kind of traumatic experience y ‘all have buried in. From power drunk police officials, to the screaming agberos and the crazy anxiety that comes with trying to get home in one piece at a reasonably time.

But like they always say, you can’t be gentle and survive in Lagos, although I am not here to dispute that logic, I’m just wondering, why are y ‘all always raising your voice and behaving like aggressive animals? this is not a some people case type of thing, this is everyone in Lagos type of thing, you probably one of them too if you stay in Lagos. At least you are a tout who takes time out to read, Lagos is hard but God will see you through. Now go drink water and sleep, you need the rest. In fact go on vacation, get outta lagos!!!
