wrkman – Why Women are Falling in Love with Service Providers & Artisans in Lagos

By: Moronkola Oluwanishola



As a lady living in Lagos week-in-week-out in my apartment, I always had one complaint or the other about artisans and service providers in Lagos. If it isn’t about a broken pipe not fixed well, then it’s about the generator guy that fixed the gen and it packed up in less than 2 days if it’s not the generator, then it’s surely my hairstylist/ makeup artist always running late—the complaints just never seemed to end. Am I even forgetting about the fact that my car has broken down in traffic on a road several miles away from the closest mechanic I know, or the fact that I don’t know how to fix a blown-out socket, or household items when they get spoilt and I just resort to getting new ones, am I the only one who finds it hard to locate air-conditional repair guys, the best ones are so scarce in Lagos?

I got introduced to the wrkman app by my friend a few months ago. She is related to the CEO and she wanted me to be the earliest adopters of the app. To test the app I started by requesting a generator repair guy. He showed up in less than 10 minutes, went around to get some new parts for the generator, came back, and completed the job. With a smile on his face, he said “Na from wrkman so madam just pay 1k”, I was shocked, 1000 naira for workmanship in this Lagos I had to force 3k on him. From the period I ordered for him on the wrkman app to the time he completed the job I got calls from their customer support asking me how the job was going and if I was satisfied with the service.

I was too happy with the whole process because I have suffered too much at the hands of artisans in Lagos, finding an app that could get the job done perfectly and could guarantee my safety felt like a dream come true, on that day for the first time in a while I felt like for a Nigerian tech product. Since then I have requested for a mechanic, a hairstylist, and an AC repairman, I have also been a chief advocate of the product introducing the product to friends and family around Lagos, especially women like me and it has been the same feeling they have experienced, a feeling of satisfaction, assurance and safety, some of them even have favourite artisans on the app. I referred so many people I got a call from their team to thank me.

I am a content writer by profession, so I volunteered to write this for their product to bring as much exposure as possible. I would prefer to keep my identity hidden, but this just tells you how much wrkman has influenced my life positively.
