4. They squeeze bread before buying it.

Who even does that? Normal people should be able to tell if a bread is fresh or not just by looking at it.

5. They eat jollof rice with stew.

People who do this should honestly be cancelled. For real.

6. They throw away the first and last slices of bread.

7. They eat egusi with draw soup.

How can you add draw soup to egusi soup? It shows a complete lack of trust in the sweetness of egusi soup to be honest. Egusi and ewedu, egusi and okro, egusi and ogbono — your trust issue needs to be fixed, fam.
