Our Impenetrable Fortress | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

My name is John Thomas, 34. Four years ago I lived in a rented apartment in Ikeja, Lagos and I had such an indelible experience. My liberation from the shackles of tenancy came only after an incredible experience with my landlord at the time. We(the tenants) had a sitting landlord and he stayed alone in his apartment. He had all ...

Obey The Rules | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

I haven’t been under a Landlord until I got admitted into a University, and I needed somewhere to stay. It was an opportunity to have a view from the tenant’s end. So, I had no problem with it, as one needs to have experiences as a human. Describing my landlord, he is a young man, in his thirties or forties ...

New Living Arrangements | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

After three months of squatting and receiving a barrage of insults that left me feeling like I was on a lower pedestal than even a vagabond, I was able to secure a one-room apartment from a quiet-looking man whom I believed was far too gentle to hurt a fly. I never knew I had just come in contact with one ...

My SITTING Landlady | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

I will like to advice anyone seeking for accommodation; consider a house without a sitting landlord or landlady. I once secured a 2-bedroom apartment, somewhere in downtown Lagos, hoping to enjoy a brand new lease of life after living in a face-me-I-slap-you for years, but reverse was the case. I have a live-in landlady that monitors every movement in and ...

My Provocative Landlady | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

One of the greatest achievements on earth is to be a landlord, one of the reasons why our fathers in those days preferred building houses above every other thing. The many bitter experiences these days also warrant or should motivate every young person to aspire ‎in building even if it’s only a house. ‎MY EXPERIENCE: I reside in Lagos, Nigeria, ...

My POLICE Landlord | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

If there should be any advice I must give to fellow tenants, it is that one should never ever live in the same compound as the landlord. It is the worst living code ever. I have witnessed the wickedness, the evil of landlords that usually live in the same compound with their tenants. There is always constant policing of every ...

My Phobia for Landlords | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

Growing up in my father’s three bedroom flat, I didn’t get the chance to have a one-on-one experience of ‘landlordship’. But I heard so many malicious stories about landlords and their tenants ranging from enforcement of unnecessary laws on tenants, random increments in house rent, the use of abusive and derogatory words on tenants and so on and so forth, ...

My Landlord’s precious bathroom | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

Hi, I’m Samuel and five hundred words cannot suffice to tell you all I went through but I’ll just type what comes to mind now… He was nice at first; he even called me son. I complained about the ventilation of my room, a window had somehow been permanently locked allowing for no cross-ventilation and he promised to do something ...

My Landlord & I: A disgusting experience | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

“Omoolorun!” The guttural voice rang out. Bobbing up the seabed of sleep, doped by the searing heat of my matchbox room, my eyes struggled to acclimatise to the force of the piercing sun, determined to rid my wearied frame of the last embers of slumber. The voice stung my ears again, this time ferociously. I had gotten quite used to ...

My Bad Landlord | #SackYourLandlord

Sack Your Landlord

I am Odeyemi ibukun Amos and I can’t but talk about my former landlord. Staying in a rented apartment can be fun and it can also be hell. Was my experience fun or was it the other way round? You will find out when I’m done with my story. As a student in my year 2 at the university, I ...
