In the past few weeks, Nigeria like most other nations of the world has had cause to effect a stay-at-home directive for her citizens in order to stem the tide of the coronavirus outbreak. In fact, some states in the country are currently experiencing a lockdown, totally barring movement of people except for those on essential duties or offering essential services. These include health workers, security operatives, top government officials with permits and a limited other few.
Regardless of what you call it in your area: Quarantine, Self Isolation, Lockdown, Work from home, Stay at home, it all invariably means the same thing: you are now a character in the blockbuster series: Prison Break, unless you can forget about the "break" part. At least till the government releases everybody into the streets again. And for those that have dared venture out and got caught by soldiers, well, we all have seen the videos of the dancing pallbearers.
With nowhere to go, people are bored sick. And in the past weeks, you must have tried everything! From thriller videos and 'tik tok' to "Anonymous messaging," House Party, Zoom Sessions, nearly everything.
