    Any type of hawking isn’t easy at all. Doing it in disorganized traffic is a different ball game; matter of life and death in seconds. Lord bless their hustle. Amen.

    I salute Nigerians and their resilience! I am always in awe whenever I’m stuck in lagos traffic sitting in a car with AC blasting and still feeling the heat while these street hawkers are under the scorching HOT sun running back and forth trying to eke out a living.. You can literally see the suffering in people’s eyes 🙁
