Five job as a psychologist or stay in Lagos and consider her options, which is when she claims she had her first. “Lagos experience.”
“We waited and waited until the point when I had to decide what to do next because my ticket had. Run out, so it was either go back to my psychological job at my 9 to 5 or stay here and not waste my ticket money since. I’m already here, I can explore.”

Osifo said, “Yeah. It happens absolutely. And it happens from your shade too, you know.
