Danfo buses are the real colours of Lagos. Hate them or need them, they are very important to the city’s survival. Whether its 12am or 4am, there is a high chance you will find a bus going your way.
These are the moments people who enter danfo will relate to too well:
1. When 2 conductors start dragging you to enter their buses.
2. When the bus tears your new shirt on your way to a job interview.
3. When you sleep and wake up after your bus stop.
4. When youre sitting between 2 plus sized women.
5. When you remember on your way home that you didn't collect N950 change.
6. When the girl in front of you thinks youre using your knees to press her soft bum bum.
7. When the driver passes BRT lane and LASTMA nabs him in front.
8. When someone turns your shoulder to Matress.
9. When the woman with 3 kids looks at you and says "Uncle please help me lap your aburo, God bless you".
10. When the conductor starts to spit on you while hes shouting.
11. When the conductor refuses to give you your change and then joins you with someone else at the final destination.
12. When the bus gets a flat tire and conductor no wan drop money.
I'm sure we must have experienced one of these things, oya tell us which one.

People are getting better and better at stealing cars. If you've ever lived in a rough neighborhood like Mushin, Lagos-Island, Ajegunle and places like Ikorodu (Badoo Infested Area), you go sabi wetin I dey talk.
Were in 2017 and you've put a lot of work into acquiring that your 2007 Toyota Camry Muscle and you don't want someone to steal it. We at www.supercarsofnigeria.blogspot.com know how to keep your car in your possession with the eight best ways to fight off potential thieves.
8.) Garage It
Car thieves are always looking for a car out on the street. If you car isn't on the street, it's less likely to get stolen. For those of us who live in cities, this means renting a garage. It's not the cheapest option, but it's an investment in your car's safety.
7.) Keep Your Car in Good Shape
A well-maintained car will deter potential carjackers. If they see that you care about and take care of your car, you're more likely to have an alarm, more likely to have a way to find it, and more likely to notice it missing.
6.) Have an Alarm Sticker
Just like the "Protected by Brinks" signs in front of houses deter burglars, so do visual signs of a tougher job for a car thief. In a row of cars, the one with the blinking LED indicating an alarm is probably less likely to get stolen, regardless of whether the alarm actually exists or not.
5.) Don't Leave Valuables in Sight
Here's a scenario: you see Car One with a box of tissues on the floor. In front of that car is Car Two in which a Samsung S8+, Hublot Watch, and a Laptop are strewn about the passenger's seat. Are you more tempted to break into Car One or Car Two? Pretty simple really — make it seem like there's nothing in your car worth taking.
4.) Park in a Safe Area
If you park your car an area with a high crime rate, and presumably a high concentration of criminals, it's more likely to be taken than when it's parked in a statistically safer area with good lighting and a neighborhood watch.
3.) The Club
Seeing a giant metal bar keeping the steering wheel from moving is a pretty good visual deterrent. And the second step is that you have a giant metal bar keeping the steering wheel from moving. There's a reason these are pretty popular in urban areas. They are, of course, notoriously easy to defeat, but the idea is to get someone to steal someone else's car because it's easier.
2.) Lock the Doors
This one seems so simple, and yet is so often ignored. A thief looking for a car to steal is more likely to go for the vehicle whose owner was kind enough to complete his first step for him, and has given him open access to everything inside.
1.) Drive a Manual
This one's been documented again and again and again. Most people in Nigeria can't drive stick, and if they can't drive it they can't steal it, Shikena.

Hi, I'm Ladi Bentley. When it comes to cars, we Nigerians (me included, money just never dey) can go extra mile and spend any amount just to be the first person to drive a car on Naija soil. We can testify to that with the kind of cars I post on my IG page, infact some people just buy this cars to prove that they owned it first, we can see that with the Brabus g700 6x6 parked somewhere in Ikoyi.
But even with that, with the amount of money going around in this country, there are still some cars we haven't seen here and are still hoping to see....... these ballers have the money so why aren't these cars here?
Below are some of the cars were hoping to spot soon on Naija soil.
