Dapo had just moved into a new boys quarters in Lagos with two of his male friends. He decided to help two of his friends who were facing accommodation challenges. Little did he know that a lot of phases are meant to be opened in his life.
In less than three months, his friends left his apartment to their own rented flats. Dapo decided to bring two of his sisters who were staying at Ijebu with their parents to Lagos. In no time, he brought them to stay with him.
Ironically, his sisters were very pretty and fair in complexion. Unlike Dapo who is the black sheep of the family. In fact, he is as black as the tires of a vehicle. Dapo’s sisters became hot cakes on the street. Men whisper to one another when they pass by. Dapo became a Lagos superstar because of his sisters.
What added another feather to his cap, was the fact that his sisters were highly educated, so unlike Dapo who managed to bag a secondary school certificate and could not further his education, his sisters are university graduates.
