“Honestly I don’t know what I’m doing in Lagos maybe I should live in Benin City or Calabar where life is much cheaper and I can get to the capital within 10 hours of driving. With 2 million naira in Calabar i can have a very nice place with a maid.
Six weeks in Lagos I only got two jobs that’s not a lot. I don’t have plans of getting married right now but i want a child, outside Lagos, is my best bet.”
