Akudo earns a wage of lower than N85,000 in a month at a struggling firm in Lagos. The only proprietor of the medium-scale enterprise had thought-about closing down the agency instances with out quantity on account of its gradual tempo of progress. For years, he has refused to extend the wage of the busty younger woman with gentle pores and skin and alluring curves which she by no means fails to point out off in tight garments. She additionally has no likelihood of being promoted in any manner. The 24-year-old does not care about her profession. Her job as a entrance desk officer is only a entrance for an additional ‘enterprise’ which brings the money. She runs an organization inside her firm and that agency is between her legs. Most of her ‘prospects’ are married males and younger web fraudsters popularly referred to as ‘Yahoo Boys’.

She has an energetic account on Instagram and that is like her personal hyperlink to the world. It is obscure what she is as much as. You must look carefully. Akudo uploads footage like each regular woman. She makes positive a big chunk of her cleavage is exhibiting, her hips are additionally uncovered out of her quick attire and she or he poses in a manner that her bottom can be captured. The photographs are laced with motivational quotes, bible verses and appreciation of God. These are common harmless footage we see every single day on social media however there may be extra to them. They’re posted as baits with intentions. The ‘items and companies’ aren’t conspicuously displayed within the black market however the consumers perceive the alerts. As soon as they see them, they make a transfer and a moneyed deal is sealed like a capital venture. Not all women are as discreet as Akudo. Others publish provocative footage, twerk in movies, flaunt tattoos, contact on x-rated matters simply to inform the skin world they’re strictly open for enterprise.

Again to Akudo, she merely goes to fashionable social media pages on Instagram to make innocent feedback. Some may be prolonged, others may be so transient. These feedback are for the visibility of her web page. consumers who’re principally male of us scroll by the remark part of fashionable social media pages not simply to gauge the opinions of individuals about points and incidents, however to look out for individuals like Akudo. After checking her profile and being happy along with her footage, he respectfully sends a message. Akudo initially acts first rate however reveals her true colors as time goes on. It may be a one-off deal during which they meet at a resort and the person pays a sizeable amount of cash and intercourse is transacted or a contract during which he turns into the ‘good friend’ Akudo.

The enterprise has been nice for Akudo. She by no means touches her month-to-month salaries. She drives a 2010 mannequin of Lexus  ES 350 saloon automotive which arrived in the course of the coronavirus pandemic when tens of millions of Nigerians misplaced their jobs and others took pay-cuts. She attributes her ‘success’ to God on a regular basis.

Akudo just isn’t alone. Life is hard in Nigeria and perhaps more durable in Lagos. It’s simple to develop into homeless as a result of the well-paying jobs are scarce and the home rents maintain going up prefer it needs to discover the heavens. Since Nigerians by no means share their pains however beneficial properties, in order that they would not be mocked or thought to be unlucky in life, the younger women secretly begin to use what they should get what they need.

How do you clarify a scenario whereby a woman who earns simply N50,000 per 30 days, lives on the mainland and works on the Island, after which simply affords the newest iPhone with different ostentatious belongings. She goes on social media each weekend to share pictures of her visitations to swanky eating places, consuming unique meals and cooling off at 5-Star motels. These ‘on-line entrepreneurs’ are all the time in a rush to point out the world they’re ‘balling’. It is like they should persuade an imaginary competitor on the market.

For girls who need a larger chunk of the monies that flow into within the untaxed intercourse business in Lagos, they crave for extra visibility. They be a part of the leisure business the place they go into modelling, shows, actuality reveals and principally appearing. The massive boys stalk the leisure business, which is just like the ‘extra you look, the much less you see’. Within the leisure business, it’s essential to look profitable to collect momentum. Since you possibly can’t have interaction in web rip-off just like the male gamers, you’ll crawl to the politicians, enterprise tycoons, drug barons and others making simple cash, to shore up your financial institution accounts, as a way to look profitable and advance your profession.

They’ve been flaunting new SUVs on social media in addition to newly-acquired homes. The story is the alternative for the lads who most instances survive on the benevolence of well-meaning Nigerians. Who’ve the male actors offended? Are they not serving a ‘residing God’?

A lot of the most gifted and hard-working male actors solely seize the headlines once they have interaction in crowdfunding to offset medical payments.

With the development in info know-how and widespread utilization of smartphones, social networks have been bobbing up other than the foremost ones like Instagram, Fb and Twitter. Most younger women discreetly be a part of them to open enterprise profiles the place they transact intercourse at inexpensive charges. Most of them are simply regular individuals that may by no means be suspected to be indulging in such. All it’s essential to merely do is chat them up, agree on a charge, she takes your handle and comes down simply utilizing one of many ride-hailing corporations. Investigations present intercourse companies are charged in response to durations and add-ons. You both go for ‘quick time’ which is a spherical or two inside two hours or so.

The story of this business cannot be advised in a single article. It’s far larger than imagined. The gamers are invisible. It’s condemned by each members. No one likes to confess it exists however they’ll all the time run there for assist when the physique requires it. It is like a hospital with quite a few sufferers in emergency wards. It is a multi-billion naira business with out exaggerations. It has modified lives. Many have purchased automobiles, careers, homes, established companies by this business. It’s referred to as the oldest career on the earth. It isn’t new, simply that the traits are altering. Each younger woman appears to be eyeing the sector with a plan to hitch and help herself. Greed, peer stress and financial hardship drive the casual business.

How a lot is Nigeria’s debt once more? N31 trillion I assume. If President Muhammadu Buhari decides to trace the transactions within the business with the only real intention to gather taxes, he’ll repay Nigeria’s money owed below a interval of 16 months, and I imply it.
