Thanks, Ifeanyi for this post.
A similar model is already done in Calabar, Cross River State where residents let out a part of their homes to tourists for the Calabar Festival & Carnival. Where the hotel rooms are all booked many months ahead, tourists often jump at opportunities to stay with locals. I doubt there are statistics but perhaps the Carnival Commission can help.
It may be possible perhaps based on referrals from friends, colleagues and acquaintances for starters before the idea disrupts our current reality.
