Paparazzi

You’d be hard-pressed to find a 20-something year old in Lagos with a smartphone who doesn’t have a side-gig as a faux-reality TV star. Yes, I’m talking about Snapchat. Not counting the head-shaking, peruvian-hair-swinging, emoji-to-cover-darkened-armpits-using, Work-by-Rihanna-in-the-background-playing, lip-synching demographic punctuating every Snap with “OH MY GOD GUYS”, there’s a lot of interesting content being created by young Nigerians for the platform. Add thelordbanks on SnapChat if you don’t believe me.

If you already use Snapchat, when you take a Snap and try to add it to your Story today, you’ll see an option called Be A Lagos Tour Guide! which lets you, well….be a Lagos tour guide. I know it’s intended for Lagosians on Snapchat who are out and about to talk a bit about their different locations, how to get there, and all whatnot.

Bankole’s trying it out already.

There it is, right below “My Story”

I also know that Nigerians (Lagosians, really) will not necessarily play by the rules, and it’s a great opportunity to gain followers by showing everyone else how creative, interesting, and/or funny you can be. That sound you hear is the secret cross dressers coming out of their sisters’ closets to try to make mummy jokes. We also think everyone will make like Lagos OAPs and put on their finest accents. I’m looking forward to hearing the ever-popular mix of Yoruba and Bri’ish, later.

Now’s as good a time as any to join SnapChat or resurrect your defunct accounts. Because I know that it’s only a matter of time before you catch the bug. Might as well get famous while doing it. *dusts inactive Snapchat account*

“So, tell me. Do you SnapChat?”

“You will”
