Lagos and traffic are like a man and its shadow. In fact, the day you wake up and drive around Lagos, and there’s no single traffic, check again—rapture fit don happen 🙂
2. After you have missed an important meeting and wasted your time, you now realize that that traffic that wrecked this havoc was caused by a guy who just decided to slow down and buy roasted corn by the roadside.
3. When you have to sit between two fat people inside danfo
Bless your soul– should one of them have body odour—which is normal. That is when you’ll begin to wonder who your ancestors offended that is ‘blocking’ you from making it in this life.
Don’t faint yet. Wait till the one that ate beans last night add a smelly fart to your already wretched condition
4. When your boss turns you into a houseboy
‘’Err Daniel, please help me buy roasted plantain down the street’’
Sorry sir, just change the job title to office assistant or better still Minister of Enjoyment Affairs so I can gladly wear the badge. Nonsense and irresponsibility.
5. Getting home at night after a tiring day—no light
At this point you have sat yourself down and reasoned that you are not planning on dying yet, so you just go take a shower, eat and lay down to sleep.
I will not come and go and kill myself.
6. Your neighbor now turns on his rickety noisy generator
At this point you cannot guarantee that you’ll act rationally if you go out there to confront him, so you whisper to yourself, ‘’Calm down. Issa trap. Issa trap. I’m not ready to spend the next few years in Kirikiri.
So you force your eyes shut and pretend you’re asleep. No be person wey river see him leg e dey drown?

Introducing the Nigerian Association of Hairdressers & Cosmetologists
The Nigerian Association of Hairdressers and Cosmetologists (NASHCO) has been in existence since the 1970s, precisely founded on the 19th of May 1978. The Association is a well known one with a huge membership database across the Country.
As part of the aim of its existence, the association was founded to provide a forum where Hairdressers as well as Cosmetologists could have their common problems dealt with fairly and timely. They also wanted to ensure that high professional standards and ethics within the field were constantly adhered to, in order to foster trust and confidence with their customers and partners. The motto of the association is “UNITY AND STRENGTH”.
However, in light of this knowledge which I believe generally precedes one’s revelation of the existence of “NASHCO”, there are 3 important things you probably did not know about the association and it’s really funny, because these 3 things are what has given the association the much credibility and recognition it continues to enjoy today.
Here they are:
1- It’s amazing to note that “NASHCO” has recorded an amazing growth in membership over the years. Just in Lagos alone, the State Chapter of NASHCO currently records over 10,000 registered members in all 20 local government areas and 37 local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) of the state.
In all states, the state body is headed by the President and Executives; the LGAs and LCDAs are headed by a Chairperson, while the various areas under each LGA/LCDA are headed by a Zonal Head. In Lagos, meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month, with the exception of December.
2- NASHCO is registered with the Lagos State Ministry of Commerce and Industry
3- NASHCO is equally registered with the Lagos State Wealth Creation and Empowerment.
The Association’s Partnership With Jambolo.com

No. The Jambolo Business Development Team will need to physically visit the service provider or any affiliated association that controls such services in that particular area field surveys to verify the identity and capacity of the prospective vendor to deliver specific services. This procedure ensures that only Service Providers that are physically verified are listed on jambolo.com
