Most of them are naive and are not so smart if you live with them or get to know them better. I usually tell people that Ibadan boys are WAY smarter than Lagos boys.

To make matters worse, many people that have not being to Lagos feel inferior, watering this superiority claim by Lagosians.
We once discussed that here: http://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-222544.0.html

That bush attitude is not common to Lagosians alone but to close minded people who have lived all their lives in some major cities and have come to regard those cities as the very centre of the earth. People form Kano are also like that, New yorkers, Londoners, etc

Pikin wey never taste another kind of soup na im dey make noise say im mama soup sweet pass. All na lagosians o, even the ones wey dey use being for the place wey dem suppose use been not to talk of the "I was born and Bread" lagos boy. . .lol
in lagos you will get the good, the bad and the Ugly. Seriously, if you wan see sharp men enter Aba or Warri, dis wan no be mouth. Warri boy go take mouth sell you to person, use the money buy you beer on top. Aba boy go use wetin u take dey claim fall your hand yakata. . Lol. . Only Aba boys go create stuff, like shoes and shirts, put the trendiest label tags on them, export them go Dubai and co, still import am enter lag and claim say na italian shoes and british shirts and the so-called lagos smart a$$es go buy am the price of the shirts from Uk and co, yet, lagosians are smart. %80 of those fines shoes and packet designer shirts are made in Aba but you no go know, na the smart lagosians dey buy am pass o, thinking say na janded property, lol. My fellow lagosians make we calm down biko, there's a huge difference between street smarts and just mere exhibition of criminal tendencies jor, lol

Lagos=one big dirty slum.
Hate the place. Was born and raised there as a true son of the soil, Obalende/Ikoyi.
Primary school - Ereko Methodist School, 35, Berkley street.
Secondary school-St Gregory's College. Principals, Amenechi, Obianwun & Omoera (RIP).
HSC A/Level - St Gregory's College.
University of Ibadan. Regained my sanity away from that crazy place.
NYSC - Sokoto, pre Boko Haram madness. Pure bliss. Friendly, easy going people, honest and true to their words. No one trying to out-smart or criminally take advantage of you. You would buy things and leave the money there in the absence of the owner of the ware or petty goods.
Give me a bus-load of dynamite and bulldozer and I'll gladly raze the place to ground zero.

Its either the poster came to Lagos to count bridge and he was given an acid test and he ran back to the forest where he/she came from. or he is jealous that he is not smart enough to survive in Lagos,like others and he is seeing others surviving.when you mingle,you will learn and be able to sail on your own.
|Re: Lagosians Feel They Can Outsmart Everyone by saintohia: 11:00am On Feb 29, 2012|
Except guyz 4m Aba. They can't outsmart anybody 4m Aba any time any day. Most of those guyz outsmarting ppl in LA are all Aba brought up. Almost all human living in Aba are guy-men by default.

|Re: Lagosians Feel They Can Outsmart Everyone by londoner: 12:43pm On Feb 29, 2012|
The responses here show that Lagosians generally see smartness as something cunning,
@rhymz, yes they seem to be rougher than those from other places in Nigeria generally. Don't get me wrong some people from other parts may look rough, but they would be people of a particular social standing and age.
In Lagos even many of those who belong to the priviledged classes look rough in the face. This cuts across tribe and age, even young people in Lagos seem to lose their fresh faces very early.
Its not about money or style, it is about the daily grind and stresses of a place which shows up in the face.
I have no doubt some people from Aba etc look rough, but these are people who actually hustle hard, not those who are wealthy or well off. We know Lagos is a very important place, noone will deny that.

lol @ comments.
@op some of them are so proud, even with their cheap second-hand outfits and their crazy idea that anywhere outside Lagos is a village and being from the south makes you 'omo ibo'. I guess those ones are those who stay in slums and never had the opportuinity to travel.

|Re: Lagosians Feel They Can Outsmart Everyone by levos2007(m): 10:00pm On Feb 29, 2012|
I think the mistake people do is that Lagos is a state not a City, so let us take the City one by one and see how its better than other city in Nigeria.
Lagos used to be the capital of Nigeria where all resource from other part of Nigeria is been used to developed . Also thinking that u are the smartest doesn't mean u are smart, u are just making a fool of your self. offcourse lagos is the most populated state in Nigeria. let us give respect to these city in Nigeria Ibadan,portharcourt , kano, If i should live in Lagos for 30year i can never claim a Lagosiam but omo ile-ife.
