According to Alinwa Kingsley, he was persuaded by friends to go to Lagos because he would have a better chance of ‘making it’ there, but things have not gone as planned since he arrived in the state.

According to the graduate, he arrived to Lagos five years ago and has spent that time frying and selling popcorn.

He used Twitter, a microblogging platform, to communicate his struggle with other social media users.
