John announced his new business on social media, and had since been receiving honest and funny reactions from both male and female followers.
John had apparently registered newly on ride-hailing app, Bolt, as a means of making extra income besides his laundry and cleaning business.
Sharing his photo, he wrote: “Hey Abuja, you got a new Bolt driver to take you on the best rides…offlines are on the table too, I wan buy house this year o,” tweeted John. He revealed that he was also available for interstate road trips and delivery services.
While some male users offered professional tips and prayers to John, the female ones were more interested in him taking them “on a ride”
One Amy (@writerspec) said, “Come and pick me up at home, I just remembered I have to go to heaven, you’re taking me there.”
@Qwin_belle said, “Hello I’m stranded somewhere around Maitama, can you come give me a RIDE??”
A male user of the platform, John Kelvin (@IamJohnKelvin), wrote: “John, I cover you with the blood of Jesus. You are protected from all these Abuja girls that don’t allow cute App Drivers rest.”
Another user (@bishop_of_peace) offered professional advice to the newbie Bolt driver, saying: “Wishing u well on Abj roads. Try deh close on abi in time. No deh do work enter night wella. As early as 6:30/7pm, make u deh close. E get why. That said, happy money making year to u. There is a telegram group – Abuja online city drivers association. If U wan join, let me know.”
