So a friend of mine, King Bey, who had a flight out of Lagos on a Friday, decided to have a little fun on Badoo – fun that quickly turned from its amorous intent to something else the moment he realized he might be on to a kito guy.
Now let me say this: When he tells you he stays in Ojo, owns a supermarket, is a business man, asks you to come see him and tells you he will send his boy to come get you from the junction, RUN!
These kito guys seem to have deduced that gay men on the search for a hookup are about three things: wealth, good looks and good sex. Always try to be discerning in your conversations with guys online, especially (for those of you Lagosians) those who tell you they stay in red zones like Ojo, Okokomaiko, Abule Ado, Satellite Town, Ikotun, even Festac, and most recently Oniru. This is not to say that there aren’t genuine gay men living in these areas who are simply looking to have fun, but it’s best to be safe than sorry.
