Man Defeats Gravity at Lagos Bus Stop

The scientific power that made the guy to beat gravitational force might be a machine inside the box on which a carpet was laid. MTN might be about to launch a hi-tech gadget, using that magical performance to create curiosity and awareness. We gathered that similar scene took place at two other locations, including Oshodi, in Lagos.
