Fortune who is from Delta state said that the worst advice she has got from people was that she is too beautiful to be riding a bike under the hot sun in Lagos state.

In a BBC Pidgin News interview, she said they asked her to pick up prostitution instead. The lady came to Lagos in 2017 on the promise her father’s brother made to put her in school.

According to the 24-year-old lady, the man said that she would have to pay him back. Fortune later braved it and went job hunting.

The lady who has been riding bikes since she was 11 years old said that she went into the okada business because there were no well-paying jobs for her in the state.
