- He decided to give a shout out to women hustling to make money through legit means
Some professions are regarded as being for a particular gender but times have changed and women can now be found doing even ‘manly’ professions.
It has become the accepted stereotype that public buses in Lagos state are to be driven by men due to the hazards they face while on the job. However some women have now taken over the mantle as they perform their duties as bus drivers just as well as any man.
A man identified as Zaddy Yo (@el_treaph_) on Twitter has taken to the microblogging site to celebrate hardworking women after he spotted a female danfo driver for the first time in Lagos.
He shared snaps from the encounter as he revealed that he wished he had taken more. In his caption, he wrote: “First time I saw a woman driving a Danfo ,I wish I got a better SHOT . ..
“Big shout out to all women , hustling to make there own money .Instead of sitting idle at home”

A number of internet users also celebrated the unidentified woman's hard work while others were skeptical about riding in a bus driven by a woman. See some reactions below:
This is commendable.
Meanwhile Briefly.co.za previously reported that a driver told an unmarried female doctor that he cannot work for a woman without a husband.
According to Ola Brown, the lady under focus, she had hired the man to fill in a role as her driver. The man who earlier accepted the job came later in the day to say that he could no longer take the job.
The male chauffeur made it clear that the decision not to work for her was made in liaison with his wife. Together, they had prayed about it and had distinctly seen that it was not good for him to work with a big madam who does not have an oga.
