The conversation all started when the female taxi driver complimented Osi’s perfume.
“I just met the most interesting 22-year-old. I took an Uber out, and a 22-year-old female 300-level student of UNILAG came to get me. We had the most interesting conversation for the duration of our trip.
“She says she has made 16k today, spent 10k on fuel and her goal is 25k before she calls it a day. She has had a breast cancer scare, shaved her head expecting the worst and tells me If I belive in miracles and I go yes. She says she was listening to a popular morning prayer and got healed. And proceeds to show me her shaved head on her phone.”
