I am already laughing even before typing this. I had to pull out my Ipad to share this story... I just cant keep the laughs to myself.

Someone said Lagos is turning turn Dubai before his very eyes and i cannot but agree with him. Lagos is witnessing some transformations that can only but be noticed over a period of time.
