As the rains got heavy this past week, parts of Lagos became flooded, the worst being on Saturday.

The Victoria Island, Lekki, Ikoyi, and Victoria Garden City areas of the state were the worst hit.

The areas are locally referred to as “The Island” which is also used to describe the highbrow part of the state.

Across social networks, several persons decried the poor state of the state’s posh areas, criticising residents for portraying luxury, but living in flooded areas.

On Air Personality Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi gave a response to the critics. She wrote on Snapchat:

    She’s not very smart is she? Well just like 95% of the OAP’s on radio in Lagos what with their very fake and annoying foreign accents which it seems is all they have to offer. Most times I just turn off the radio when I’m in my car cos I get so let down by the intellectual content this guys spew out. Its dumb, its sickening, its Gbemiesque. Sad thing is Gbemi as a press woman has a voice, a platform to call for better governance from the government, help demand for better be it security, electricity, and basic infrastructure, yet she decides to defend the faux posh lifestyle of the island folks by joining in this stupid mainland vs island banter. And that line of 24hrs pharmacy in operation in lekki phase 1 alone almost killed me three times over. Really Gbemi? Really? What are you? 6? Would have gone full Olomofin on you this morning but I dey fast. Lol. 24hrs pharmacy fall on you.

      I absolutely agree. Sometimes Gbemi talks through her a**. So three 24hr pharmacies is now something to brag about? People are talking of REAL development to actually better lives of the masses and she’s here spewing nonsense. SMH

      Actually, i wouldn’t go so hard on Gbemi on this one. Truth is many Lagosians have taken this flooding thing to a whole new level, using it as an opportunity to make jest of/insult people who live on the island. It is almost like they are happy it happened so the ‘posh’ people can suffer. I have seen comments of people gloating over the suffering of the ‘pompous’ island people, like you, you just described them as “faux posh lifestyle ”
      Well newsflash, not every body who lives on the island has money.
      And yes, some of the richest Nigerians live here
      And yes, some of us chose to live here for convenience and safety! I live in Ikoyi and there are very few areas in Lagos i can live in without an iron barricade on my door, and no i am not rich, not by any stretch of the imagination. I also walk to my office!
      And lastly, we cannot all live on the mainland! The mainland and in fact the whole of Lagos is already overpopulated, imagine what would happen if everyone on the island move to the mainland?
      Let us be a bit more kind in our responses, even the rich deserve sympathy. I am sure it is comments like i have described above that got to Gbemi.

      How do you know what I was thinking, re:going Olomofin on her this morning.
      Her saying people have an inferiority complex over living on the mainland shows serious lack of judgement and a pretentiousness I didn’t realise.
      We’re now assuming living on the island is better than living on the mainland??? Really??? In 2017 a grown woman can imply that? When there’s proof of otherwise.
      No electricity, bad water, no gutters and you’re paying 40% more in rent but feel superior?
      Dumb girl Gbemi …dumb dumb dumb.

      Gbemi see ur life?:

      This is why we cannot have any sensible engagement in Nigeria.

      Look at this one now – an OAP whom you would expect to have sense. Someone who has OAP-ed for more than a decade. Her best analysis of the flood drowning people’s property in Lekki, and white men going on a kayak trip around Victoria Island, is to start this disgraceful mind-numbing comparison of The Island vs. The Mainland.

      She represents Press. These are people who should speak or write to condemn government’s lack of interest and lack of urban sophistication in the state. But for bants, let’s just make this about Mainland complex.

      How daft.

      I can never understand these things. This idea of I-am-better-than-my-neighbour that we enable from our generator to our cars to our shoes to our fake hair to where we live and where we go on vacation.

      You are a Nigerian, everywhere you turn is underdevelopment.

      What is wrong with us?

      Nothing makes you superior in a country where you provide your own drinkable water and where you have no control over what rain does to your property. It doesn’t matter where you live. You are inferior regardless.

      This is like gorillas fighting in the zoo, when there’s an entire wild to explore.

      From Mainland to Island, it’s a dirty, ugly, underdeveloped, unsophisticated story. So what are we gloating about? That we can wear Louboutin regardless of the flood OR we can afford to replace the disaster of the flood on our furniture faster than the next man?

      There’s no flood where I live… but there’s no light, no water, the roads have gullies, the town could be better managed but it is not. All the parks have been sold and money squandered by old men. It’s the same story even in the richest parts of Banana Island.

      So what does it matter if there isn’t flood on the mainland and why should it ever deteriorate to a conversation about inferiority complex?

      When are we going to properly ENGAGE one another for the purpose of making our country and living conditions better?

      I’m tired.

    July 10, 2017 at 9:48 am

    I understand why she wrote that. I was surprised that rather than outrage with govt or citizen’s neglect and concern for those affected so many on social media were crowing, “Good for you Lekki peeps wanting to form Island big boy and girl.” That shows that jealousy towards their friends, relative and acquaintances had been bubbling beneath the surface just looking for a way out. As if the Mainland is for the poor and the Island for the rich. That’s just not true but anyone with a complex will always distort facts. Personally, I look at anyone who posted that mocking differently now.

    • nene

      July 10, 2017 at 10:43 am

      but island people have been insulting mainland people for years. so maybe it was time to get back, and with a valid point. some people won’t even be friends with a person who lives on the mainland. “i don’t do mainland”.

    • Josephine

    July 10, 2017 at 9:49 am

    Gbemi’s comment sounds quite uneducated, i don’t see how having ’24 hr’ pharmacies make the island better but then, maybe pharmacies are her thing…. Jokes aside though, i don’t understand how “the flood” became an island Vs mainland issue. it was quite annoying to see people mocking something that has rendered some people homeless, and crippled quite a number of businesses, that’s quite insensitive…

    I don’t know when Lagos became islanders and mainlanders, it’s one lagos and we should all have ONE voice.

    • Simi

      July 10, 2017 at 11:54 pm

      God bless you oh.

      They are so many people who live on the ‘island’ who are not even rich.

      Okay so laugh at the guy whose Range Rover was wrecked by the flood but can you seriously laugh at his driver who live in that axis for convenience, who lost his mattress that costs 3 months salary. The gari seller who lost her whole stock? The the aboki who didn’t envisage he has to put his stock on higher selves before he closed shop the day before? The Itedo children that may witness another epidemic? Really, can you?

      The Nigerian spirit loves to laugh and it gets us through the hardest times, but when lives and livelihoods are involved, I’ll pass.

And I thought she had class… gbemi I looked up to you as a woman of intellect and widom, this piece you uploaded proves otherwise… funny thing is I envy some of my friends’ neighbourhoods on the mainland like omole and gbagada phase 1… I went to a colleague’s introduction last month, her father’s house was in one estate behind ICM… I think peace estate or so…can’t remember but the place was neat and peaceful with so much green

    it’s island people who have an inferiority complex cuz they look down on anyone who doesn’t live on the island. yet as highbrows at the island is, flood is a major issue. the irony! no highbrow areas abroad have issues like this, but alas, Lagos and Nigeria is always an exception.

  16. Xyno

    July 10, 2017 at 10:45 am

    @Josephine so you can understand why she wrote this? You serious right now? She has a job to inform, educate and enlighten. So you see no issues with her descending to the level of those who turned an otherwise unfortunate incident to a mainland vs island banter slash bragging rights affair. Sorry ma’am I can’t agree with you on this one. There are some things that can’t be defended especially a classless and childish reaction like she put up

    • Josephine

      July 10, 2017 at 12:15 pm

      @ Xyno. I’m afraid I’m very serious about understanding why she wrote it. Gbemi posted in anger which is why I said I get it, not that I could do it. I didn’t react. I just read otherwise normal folk become gloaters and mockers and was put off. Its not my nature to come out blasting but yes, I don’t blame her. People are really messed up and spending crazy money they didn’t budget for because of this disaster and others are laughing at them. When I first moved back I stayed with relatives in GRA. When it was time to get my own place I couldn’t find a place there in my budget and ended up sharing in Lekki till I moved again. Its poor to laugh at anyone when something bad happens to them, sorry.

    July 10, 2017 at 11:09 am

    The name-calling tho *sigh

    With the kind of mindset some people have, they’ll never go past a certain level of financial status and comfort. It’s not a curse. It’s the limit they’ve placed on themselves. So people don’t have the right to live where they can afford to live? If certain people have decided to be wretched and poor in their mind, they shouldn’t have to drag others into that hole.
    Common sense is not common, so I’m not surprised.

    The ‘government’ people keep complaining about, is it angels that are in power? We do the worst, when it comes to maintenance, even in our own environs, and we expect the best of everything from everyone else. Common sanitation, we hardly get involved in (we are excited that lagos cancelled the monthly sanitation programme, cos we hardly observe it anyway). We dump refuse and litter the whole streets, and we are expecting the government to clean our butts after our mess.

    People will build houses, blocking drainage systems, the government will give notice of demolition, and we’ll still be the ones to complain that they are wicked for doing their job – for doing things that can possible stop disasters like this from happening.

    The government has a monumental part to play, no doubt. But they can do little without us. So let’s quit the blame game, and start doing our part.

    Gbemi’s delivery was definitely wrong, but I get where she is coming from.
    A frenemy actually called me over the weekend, not to show concern but to gloat and find out if I was affected by the floods. She was actually laughing over the phone. Saying ‘pele o, I heard island is like Noah ark ? I just smiled and said my estate hasn’t been affected and I don’t even plan on leaving the house this weekend, thank you.
    I get into the office today. Another colleague that lives in Ipaja came gloating and laughing again about the floods. I didn’t even answer him, my colleagues gave a response already.
    Mind you I have been living on the Island since 1989 and I definitely don’t look down on where anyone is living. But I am sincerely tired of ppls silly comments.
    I have a colleague that actually opens his mouth to say in few years or decades to come , we wld wake up and the world island wld be swept away by water. People make such comments and ppl don’t say anything but they are ready to bite off Gbemi.
    Some of us have lived here since childhood, I since the age of 5. Got married and still remained here. Its not a matter of class, but this is were we call home. And some of mainlands ppls comments were insensitive.

    I recall a time that short Igbo guy with the beard who sees himself as a style influencer and owns a website. (I can’t put his name or BN will use it to wrap fufu) rejected an invitation I sent to him for an event on behalf of a brand.

    His reason?

    “I don’t attend events on the mainland.”

    My colleagues spent the rest of the week laughing our hearts out.

    Erm, eyin ‘Islanders’ and ‘Mainlanders’, let’s put our fragile egos aside on this one.

    When I saw the comment, I just quickly figured how how she thinks. Too bad everyone knows now that she has a low IQ. Rich people are everywhere in Lagos. Lagos island is just like a club of elite put together in ikoyi and lekki. They shouldn’t forget that Lagos island, apongbon, aroloya and the like have people living there and it is also Lagos island.

    You guys, don’t lie and pretend that the island doesn’t have most of the high brow areas. That’s the nicer part of Lagos with more of the modern blahblah and the expensive houses and the more expensive everything. What Gbemi said was quite uncalled for, but we should also tell ourselves the truth, no need to act like we don’t know that the island is most definitely the upscale part. A lot (not all) of the island flood jokes were definitely coming from a place of jealousy. Gbemi is from money though, isn’t her dad some prince? Nonetheless, Gbemi shouldn’t have said what she did, it sounds very elitist and is uncalled for, and even if her dad does have money, he’s not exactly the richest man

    First, i do hope affected persons got some days off to sort themselves out….this island flood is not a new issue but for some reason, it seems little has been done, bearing in mind it could reoccur, but as usual in Nigeria we are never proactive only reactive to situations. Thank God for sunshine today…..now, bk to Gbemi, even if you have never been to Lagos or do not live in Lagos you will know that Lagos island people always shade mainland people all day, errday, and i no see nybody coming online to vex! So Gbemi needs to check herself and all the people saying mainland friends laughed at them (its proly because you sef de laugh them when they have to wake up by 4am or get robbed going back late………) Yes, some mainland people may have laughed initially but i also believe that did not take away the sympathy everyone felt especially as the videos kept coming and turned out to be ” a very serious something”. Write “essay” to govt and citizens to do the right thing, build in the right places and stop fighting nature cos nature will fight bk stop looking for people to diagnose of inferiority complex. Its very childish and unecessary . ??

      @ Mrs P, this thread is the first I’m hearing of it. When I was in primary school, my older siblings’ friends would come from Ikoyi to sleep over at our house on the Mainland so they could rock Daniel’s night club. That was the place to be then. I left Nigeria for 20 years and first lived in GRA. No one told me they can’t come to the Mainland. No wonder all this arose. I didn’t understand the glee over the flooding.

    How unfortunate. She couldn’t find something relatively reasonable/thoughtful to say like her mate Mocheddah, its her own superiority complex she decided to expose. Honestly education, exposure to the western world etc mean nothing once you enter Nigeria. It becomes a rat race rather than let citizens band together as part of their civic duty to hold their government to account and empower good leaders. This comment from S sums it up perfectly ‘You are a Nigerian, everywhere you turn is underdevelopment’ however some want to be deceiving themselves that they are better off than others. It’s all relative however there is nothing to boast about in Nigeria on the whole whether you have 24 hour pharmacy or not, it’s the same fate you face essentially as a Nigerian. Your exposure to the faillure of the most basic of public goods.

    F-U-N-K-E!!!
    Una don bury Gbemi. She dull pass expectation ni sha.
    Mainland vs Island is a thing of the mind. I work on the mainland, it’s only normal to live on same. It applies to the Islanders too. But she didn’t make sense with what she said. Serious sense fall on her. The first guy did a great job on her.

    This is for gbemi…. some opinions should never be posted on social media. Bad choices like this will always do more harm than good. Cheers

    Wow I never knew living on the island was a thing of class. My sister was transferred from her office to Lagos about 3years ago. Her office is in ikoyi,coming from a town like Calabar where we don’t have traffic and all,we just advised her to get a place close to work. So she got a place in Lekki phase 1 just for proximity nothing else. If her office was in Magodo sure she would have looked for a place close to that axis too. When we heard of the flood we called and luckily her area doesn’t get flooded. All I’m saying is that if staying in Lekki is kind of a thing of class for some people then I believe they haven’t seen life yet and it’s a myopic mentality because really Lagos is expanding and everyone cant be on the mainland. The way town planning was done before is not the way it’s done now maybe that’s why Lekki has a face lift but to be mocking people there when it rains it’s outrageous. Floods happen see the people in Niger state and no one is saying anything it’s now a mainland and island battle?‍♀️

    Is Obalende not Island too? I wonder though, how many of these people who go on and on about Island have been to Magodo Phase 2, Shonibare Estate, Magodo Brooks??? How many? Because if they have I bet they will think differently. Y’all need to stop this nonsense!

    I have heard lots of Lekki ppl say they never cross the bridge (3rd mainland) for anything except going to the airport. So it’s easy for them to assume the best n poshest houses are on the island. Looking at mainland ppl with poor eyes. You need to leave your island n visit other places and see equally posh houses. It is only a child who has not visited anothers father’s farm that says his father’s farm is the biggest.

    Miss Gbemi…most shades in Naija is part of fun, live, laugh and move on. It’s only an insecured person that will whine about it for too long and to come online as an OAP and rant about it, lame! Next..shouldn’t you be concerned about a 24 hour phamarcy in a flooded zone…? Next…you people are the reasons why there is so much bants everywhere because you leave your jobs as OAPs and join in the silly social media drama. You guys are meant to be social influencers, opinion leaders and resourceful to aiding national development…Itesiwaju Eko…

    Gbemi allowed egotism and pride to cloud her view. Remember, pride is before a crash. Class distinction will not help gbemi. Cloth urself with humility.
