Two KDians In Urgent Need For Temporary Accommodation

Two KDians In Urgent Need For Temporary Accommodation

Dear KD, two people in our community require urgent temporary accommodation in Lagos, and one of them is our very own Delle.

Check out below for what they have to say about their requests.


1 Hello, I am Caleb, and I am a fourth year student of a Federal University currently on internship. I am yet to resume work due to accommodation. I would like to stay with a community member around Ikeja, as that is close to the internship office. And I know everyone says this, but I truly intend not to burden whoever my host is too much. I can do chores and would not be a financial liability to whomever I’m going to be staying with. Please, I need help to be able to get started on my internship.

If anyone here is so kind as to help, you can reach me via 09031803590. Thank you.


2 Hello, Delle here. This is going to be a bit long (lol, storyteller much?), so bear with me.

After I quit my former job due to reasons primarily hinged on dissatisfaction, I swore to myself that I was going to get a better offer. I knew I could do it, having spent five grueling years in one of the most challenging federal universities in Nigeria. I was not going to settle for a job that gave me no time for myself and baby boy life.

So, I quit and invested all of my energy into applying to better places with brighter prospects. As the months went by and the little savings in my account depleted, I remained unshaken, resolute in my mind that I had made a good decision.

Fast forward to some months and I finally got that dream job!

Actually, three offers, and I have never been prouder of myself. Only issue now is that in all the time I made plans to leave, get something else, live the baby boy life, it never occurred to me to put proximity to work as a crucial factor. Until I got the offer of employment, that didn’t cross my mind. I mean, how could I not know that a whole lot of these “better” places are situated on the island?

So, now I am in a fix.

I stay on the Mainland. Oh, and not the mainland that sometimes gets small Island breeze (hello Yaba and Gbagada). It’s the real mainland. Very main part of this land that is Lagos that to get to the Island will require waking up at ungodly hours just to beat time. This will frustrate me. I mean, I know me. I cannot. And the last thing I need is to be less productive at work because I am physically and mentally stressed from getting few hours of sleep and barking at countless conductors.

Over the years, I have come to see Kito Diaries as the gay haven; a family of some sorts. People share stories, people grow, people have met on here and gone on to become friends or get orgasms. And most importantly, people have sought help and gotten it. This is me seeking help.

Work begins on the 1st of July.

Of course, it would be temporary. I do not plan on hanging around for a long time. As a matter of fact, I also have plans of getting my own place with a friend but it’s very much in its early stage. At most, six months and I am out of your hair (you probably won’t want me to leave, but hey, I am supposed to be on my knees begging, not singing my praises. Phew!). Six months tops, I am gone.

If you stay on the Island (my work place is at VI) or its environs (Yaba, Gbagada, Iyana-oworo, Bariga etc) and you wouldn’t mind having a roomie or squatter for the period mentioned, please reach out to me via the email address:

I want to stay and write all my good qualities and why I would make an amazing house partner, but Pinky will have my head if I take more space. I would be looking forward to hearing from you, wonderful people.

Thank you.


So there you have it. Any hosts who won’t mind a temporary roommate should kindly reach out to these fellows and help them out as only a community can do.
