Nigerian hypeman and singer, Toby Shang has expressed excitement after chartering an empty commercial bus in Lagos.
The composer said he decided to charter the bus for himself because he was unable to get a regular cab or Uber after waiting for long.
Shang shared a video of himself inside the bus with only the bus conductor at the back with him while the driver took him to his destination.
The hypeman, who was ecstatic revealed that he did a cash transfer to the driver before they embarked on the trip.
Watch the video below:
Meanwhile, a Nigerian lady recently boarded a commercial bus while heading to work and paid with the newly released N1000 note but it was rejected.
CorrectNG reports that the Central Bank of Nigeria released the N200, N500, and N1000 notes to banks on December 15, 2022.
The new and old notes are allowed to be used for transactions until 31st January 2023, when the old naira notes would cease to be valid.
The passenger was left stranded because the bus conductor insisted that he would not collect the money as he wasn’t sure it is real or fake.
She claimed not to have any other money on her apart from the new N1,000 and this caused some delay as she could not drop and they could not move forward either.
A video which trended online showed passengers confused as the two of them continued to exchange words over the money’s authenticity.
Someone asked the conductor if he is not aware that there are new naira notes in circulation, in responded that he does not know the one the woman wanted to pay him with.
The person then gave him the old 1k note and the conductor said he recognises it even if his eyes were closed.
He wanted the female passenger to alight from his bus and enter another one but a man sitting beside her came to her defence and wondered why he was rejecting it.
The conductor then had no other choice than to collect it and he went to ask some of hi colleagues if it is real money.
