Ugo in his book English Shall Never Master Me published in Heinemann press, a noun can be unraveled to mean a nomenclature…” Please dear, never again. You’ll find them in primary schools, secondary schools, universities, offices, etc.

2. That course mate who goes overboard with assignments.

The lecturer will give the class a one-page assignment and some of them will type it on A4 paper, print, spiral bind, send the PDF to the lecturer, create a Powerpoint slide, and still come to class with a flash drive. On top of this first class that you want to collect? Nawa.


3. Motivational Speakers

4. Fellowship Brothers and Mamas

They will ask them to lead a two-minute prayer but they will turn it to full revival. Then there are those ones that ask you to shout Halleluyah and still tell you, “That Halleluyah is too small for my God.” Please ma, when did you God appoint you as sound engineer for heaven?
