Warri Pikin discovers how interesting Nigerians react to beggars around them.  There are people who live by begging all around the world, and Lagos is not an exception. The thrilling thing about begging in Lagos is the way some of these beggars go around requesting for alms. The systematic way some these well dressed beggars move around the street to beg for money makes Nigerians tag them as “Corporate Beggars”. How and why people react to these beggars is quite interesting. Battabox Sends Warri Pikin out to the street of Lagos to get people comfortable enough to speak in pidgin English as to why they react to these Beggars the way they do. Here are some of the comments made: “once you give one money, another 5 will attack you. They take begging as stunt”. “I don’t get angry when i see one, i understand what everyone is going through with the condition of the country” “There is no money everywhere and they will still be asking you for money, can’t they work? There is work on the street”. “When you see the person coming to beg you for money, it turns out they are more dressed than you and even look fresher than you” “If you give them money, they will still be there the next day and everyday. That doesn’t make sense”. Thanks for Watching!
