19-year-old Magician Babs Cardini wows audiences by performing tricks on the streets of Nigeria’s commercial capital Lagos.
In an interview with BBC, he said he has loved magic since he was six years old but officially started out as a professional at the age of 16.
He tells BBC Pidgin the most popular trick he is asked to perform is to turn objects into money.
Cardini also said that anywhere he gets to, people are always wowed with his tricks and tried to be his friend. He even added that people contact him just for the sake of knowing him more.
He said one of his challenges performing for Nigerians is that they always want everything turned into money.
“And Nigerian mentality, when they see you as a magician, they get wowed and still ask me, can you turn this into money? Most of the request is always about money,” he said.
Babs showed BBC News Pidgin his most popular trick – turning objects into money.
