Diary of a Lagos Boy (DLB) – Pilot

Living in Lagos as a Lagos Boy is not a child’s play. Before I started living alone three years ago, I was staying at my family house with my three sisters and mother. I am spoiled rotten because I am the only son. Being an only son comes with special privileges, which you cannot imagine unless you’re an only son like me.

I am Jeremy Edokpa-Smith, and since this is my first diary entry in a series of many to come, let’s make it count.

Anybody living in Lagos must learn how to deal with the unpredictable traffic of Lagos. I wake up at 6AM. daily because I must do my daily exercise to keep fit. This is one of the most important aspects of my life I do not joke with. Although sometimes I don’t feel like exercising I have to do it for the sake of my health. I do two reps of forty push-ups and one rep of 20 every day. 

After yesterday’s work-out, my body shone with sweat and I enjoyed the sight for a brief moment in the mirror on my bathroom wall, to see the result of my exercise manifest on my ebony skin, pure joy! Yeah-yeah! I admire my well-built body when I want to be vain you do too! I wish I could show you what my body looks like after my daily work-out, but don’t worry one day I might invite you over to workout with me, perhaps you might have the privilege to see what my body looks like.

Enough of this vain talk about my body. I quickly ran into to bathroom, brushed, undressed, and showered. I wore black jeans and a navy-blue shirt for a meeting. I didn’t have breakfast before heading out for the meeting because I am not the breakfast kind of man. Maybe I will be when I get married but for now who cares about breakfast?

Fast-forward, the meeting with a client who wants me to do some graphic and web designs was successful. For your information, I enjoy graphic design, web developments (UI/UX front end) – I eat it like food, drink it like water and breathe it like air. You can call me a digital guru or internet demigod.

Also, I am a lover of gadgets and brand new tech. The internet is my other home. We are going to have a lot of fun together; so bookmark this site and use those social media follow buttons so we can be in constant touch!

And yeah, From today I see anybody reading this post as a family, and “the strength of a family, like the strength of an army, is in its loyalty to each other,” – Mario Puzo, (Author, Gangster and all-round bad-ass).

I pledge to be loyal to you and not bore you with trivialities and non-essential talks.

Next week I will introduce my father to you.

Thank you for reading my first entry.

This is Diary of a Lagos Boy.
