On Saturday, Nov. 15th 2014, Easy Taxi celebrated its anniversary in a rather different way. Easy Taxi Nigeria partnered with Bestman Games to create a live event where participants explored different fun locations within the city of Lagos in real time. Teams of five which comprised of male and female enthusiasts which included the Nigerian brand ambassador for safety, Zainab Balogun and Cool FM OAP Kaylah Oniwo rode around Lagos in easy taxis, exploring different locations and landmarks within the city. The teams during the course of exploring the city of Lagos in an Easy Taxi, completed small challenges which also involved making use of the application by requesting for an Easy Taxi to convey them to their next stop. This showcased the different uses of the smartphone application and various fun spots and landmarks to visit in Lagos; this includes The Lagos Yacht Club, Freedom Park, Lekki Leisure Lake and so many others. At the end of the very successful event, one team was victorious with highest points earned for effortlessly using the application to get to four different destinations and completing activities in-between.
