They shoot your wings and still ask you to fly, yes we do still fly but it is painful. Ah yes Lagos, the dream city. People come here to hustle and make money, yet the cost of living is so high. Maybe it’s the fact that electricity in the majority of neighbourhoods isn’t stable, so now you gotta run on fuel, but then there are fuel shortages. The city is overcrowded and the roads are damaged and unstable, so how do you hustle and get to work smoothly? Lagos is a colourful mess. It has really beautiful parts, bustling with young people trying to make it. Our schools are constantly going on strike, even my little brother is about to sit at home for months again, just like I did and my sister did. It has always been like this.
The school syllabus is stuck in the 90s. It feels impossible to compete on the world stage being handicapped right from the beginning. Well, thanks to the internet we can scale through that barrier by self learning, see, we are flying with a broken wing.
