Case in point:

Memes mean a lot to us, but I’m pretty sure they mean a lot to anyone who uses the internet for anything at all. 

Imagine a world where all the most hilarious Nigerian and African memes on the internet can be found? Movies and social media have given us some of the most hilarious memes and gifs back-to-back. From fainting governors to Sola Sobowale’s deadly expressions on King of Boys. What if you could find these hilarious African memes in one place?

If you do a Google image search for a Nigerian meme, most of the results you’ll find will be connected to a Zikoko article.

Here’s how it works:

Whether it’s for gbas gbos on Twitter, for responding to your Mother’s WhatsApp BCs or for shooting your shot, you can now find and download all your favourite Nigerian memes on memes.zikoko.com at absolutely no cost at all.
