Gaan, gaan, what’s the matter?As Nigerians awoke this morning to find some mysterious, yet beautiful red boxes at a number of sites across the country, these are the questions on everyone’s minds.A QR Code with the hashtag #SpotTheRedBox appears on each of these boxes. This trait indicates that it is likely to be part of a public relations stunt or a planned brand activation. Whatever it is, we’re looking forward to it…

They say curiosity kills the cat. But that’s not a soji cat. Rather, we’re confident that these boxes will enrich our lives, as the lovely Red Boxes tease interesting discoveries for those who are BOLD enough to investigate.

Maybe it will bring great gifts or freebies to whosoever scans the QR code — Lord, you know… you know… we could all use some freebies during these special times.
