So someone asked Twitter peeps how Nigerian are they and people are replying with very funny replies about how Nigerian they are. Let’s revel in our Nigerianness together.
1. It is an unwritten law that loud volume affects your sense of smell and sight, in Nigeria.
I reduce the volume of my TV to know if my food on fire is burning 🙄🙄🙄

2. Weird question and answer session you say? Nah, not so weird.
I ask weird questions like asking someone sleeping "are you still sleeping". Seeing a friend eating and be asking him "what are you eating"…

3. This one that is doing a ponzi scheme on the low.
I use to borrow money from my friend to pay my other friend that I'm owing for 3 months and when. The other friend begins to disturb me for his own money after like 2months , I'll still borrow from another friend and pay him.. it continues like dat till the year runs out 😅😂😂
