Zip-Up! It applies to the mouth too! Aargh!!!

That moment you have that feeling your co-passenger is trouble.  As soon as she entered the tricycle, her mouth started to work. She kept pointing out unnecessary things on our way. Then the tricycle jacked. “Take it easy”, the elderly woman said. The passenger seated next to the driver replied her “is not his fault”…

Help! The Traffic Is Real๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Residents and commuters wants to know who is responsible for the Oko Afo road along Badagry Express road! Is it LASG, FG, or even ECOWAS? It’s falling apart please we are tired of the dilapidation of the road biko. Courtesy @sara.sleek #diary #diaryofalagoscommuter #dolc #commuter #transport #photonews

Change Palaver!

I don’t even know how to start off this story!  I boarded a bus from Iyana Ipaja garage to Agege (will be plying that route for the most part of this week though), guess what! The driver who gave LASTMA officials a show for what they are worth the other day drove it. This time,…

LASTMA Dey Worry๐Ÿค‘โš”๏ธ

It was a long day yesterday. It seemed as though I went out on a physical exercise spree. I had to walk long distance from one garage to another before boarding buses. I didn’t mind though, since exercise is good for the body they say. I was soon tired ๐Ÿ˜ด out, hence the late post!…

Driver, Send them out of the bus!!!๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

I boarded a LAGBUS (the former BRT bus) to Ikorodu from Ojota on a Saturday like this. As we crawled through an unusual Lagos traffic occasioned by a downpour, a panel of discussants took over the atmosphere inside the bus with an argument on whether Naija go better or e no go better and how…

Talk of Creativity๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ…

That moment you are caught in between your love for a dress (and not wanting to let go) and the discomfort you have from the style cut of that same dress.  I got on the queue after buying my ticket at the Ojota BRT terminus only to notice this ‘yellow’ babe right in front of…

‘Spespe’ Ladies, Get In Here๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‚

I had a 9am appointment today, so I decided to employ the service of an Uber driver. I found out early this year that Uber sometimes are quite affordable, reliable and convenient. I love to indulge myself at times. So I got into the waiting Peugeot 307, then the driver told me he just realised…

Tricycle Business: One To Consider๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have observed lately that there have been a proliferation of female tricycle drivers in Lagos and I’ve just been curious as well about what could have informed their decision to be a tricycle rider- a proud one at that!  Photo credit: CPAfrica We (my hubby, a friend and I) boarded a tricycle few days…

Softly! Softly! Oga๐Ÿคก

Reminiscing this rainy Wednesday on some characters I’ve encountered this my commuter life. Whew!  I recall an incident that happened when Lagos mainland (Ikeja, Acme, Agege, Agidingbi and Ogba axes) was on a lock down on the 9th of May when APC had their congress at their Acme secretariat with respect to the forthcoming LG…

Which is Ideal? Danfo or Cabs?

It was a smooth ride this time last week from Lagos to Ibadan. Traffic was very mild and friendly. As we got some miles before Iwo road, my driver shouted loud (gesturing to his side of road). It was a commercial bus whose break failed while on top speed. Thank God nobody was injured. Although…

What You Sow, You Reap!๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿฝ

That moment you pay makeup artist 7k and you expect to look like Kate Henshaw! Hehehe! I was still trying to have some respite from the waka waka I’d been on today (in a tricycle) when my ear (it wasn’t me o nor was it intentional, lol) dropped in on the conversation of the two…
