Over the years, Tejuosho has amassed popularity due to its major market located between Yaba and Ojuelegba.

The Tejuosho market is a conventional market where commodities are sold at a cut price.

Thus, Tejuosho is a fully commercial area. The market in Tejuosho is the home of clothing items, weaves, sports accessories as well as beauty supplies and it thrives in the multitude of buyers and sellers it hosts on a daily basis. The neighbourhood is always very busy and a lot of people seem to be going somewhere or coming from somewhere. After a major fire outbreak in 2007, Tejuosho rose out of the ashes regaining its pride of place once again as an icon in Lagos to the delight of all.
