Kito Diaries Public Announcement III

FOREWORD: Here’s another ad for a roommate. Any interested parties should drop an email to me at pantherptb@yahoo.com.

*

Hey guys, I’m looking to share my flat. It’s a still being furnished, a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment (PS: I don’t have a couch though) in Yaba, recently renovated and refurbished (I moved in 6 monhs ago). The apartment is near the University of Lagos, Coldstone/Dominoes and Sabo. The rooms are really bright, clean.

The apartment’s living room is both tiled and rugged. It has a functioning borehole with two tanks, but we seem to always run out of water at 10am every morning (no idea why). Power used to be steady, but since the mess with Niger Delta Avengers started, it has dropped drastically. But the gen comes on everyday at 8pm, goes off at 11pm, and then 6 am to 7am. You’d only need to move in with a mattress and a fan. Air conditioning is available even though I can’t seem to get the idiot I paid 5 months ago to come finish the installation. Parking is available underneath the building, but it has become first come, first service. The building has an average of 2 cars per tenant for 9 parking spots.

Rent is flexible. You could either do monthly at 60k/month or yearly at 450k/year (No agreement/commission, no furnishing or buying household items), and this excludes service charges (estate security, building security, electricity (grid/fuel), cleaning). Internet is optional.

I know living with roommates can be awful. Heck, living with anyone is. We are different people. We come from different backgrounds, have different experiences and we are set in our own ways. I am introverted, I keep a FEW FRIENDS, and I like my space and my alone time alone, although I’d probably enjoy them being invaded every now and then. However, I’d expect my roommate to respect them, especially if he has a ton of friends that’d make it awkward for me to run into all the time everywhere.

    Roommate? As in living in the same room with someone? Or flatmate???.

    Cause I don’t know how you can be paying that much to share a room with somebody.

    Anyways Yaba is really cool. So many gay guys and places to go to hang out and eat. Plus there’s that market again. Hiaaan. I actually really love it there and I’m there very often. Plus I’m always bumping into a certain person ??

    People like Pinky and Francis should not live there . Coldstone will inherit all their life savings.

    I like the honesty sha, people who usually advertise will tell you “steady light and water” and lie about a bunch of other things.

    Ad looks very attractive. Almost too good to be true,but from the description you’ve given based on close landmarks and rent flexibility (esp. the monthly payment plan) which is rare. I hope it’s not that fine house sharing a fence with the Atan Cemetery? 0_0.

    Now this is what an ad should look like! Not some thinly veiled homophobic line of crap! If only this apartment was close to University of Port-Harcourt rather than Univ of Lagos, i know a certain KDian who would move mountains to go live there #TwinkVille #DMTwinkLover

      BTW Unilag, Sabo and Coldstone is a huge radar. Except you re a friend and aware of my roommate hunt. Sure. If you don’t fall in the category. No. And I’m pretty sure my building isn’t the only with an underneath parking space in Yaba.

          He said three bedrooms. I think it’s obvious he’s looking for a flatmate. 🙂

    To be clear, this dude wants we to pay N450 or share the bill?

    Besides Yaba still quite a distance from the WORK ZONE (Marina-VI-Lekki).

    Come back with same post but a location in Surulere; where a dude can live peacefully on the DL. Don’t wanna share a space with some bro in a location where, the sheets be always warm….hehehehe

    Kinna need that kinna roommate tho…some freaky ass bro to go hunting with.
