10 Things Nigerian Women Want Nigerian Men To Know

August 10, 2020

Nigerian women have a lot to get off of their chest in regards to Nigerian men. Last week, it was about problems with dating Nigerian men. Now, here are 10 things Nigerian women want Nigerian men to know.

Sade

Porn is not real life. For goodness sake, I will not be doing snake in the monkey shadow, bicycle riding style whatever. That is not how real life works. Especially since most of you get three strokes in and are done.

Funmi

Leave minors alone. You are an old man pursuing women in Secondary school, have you no shame? You are grooming young kids and are taking pride in it, please stop. That is rapey behaviour.

Adaeze

Heal. stop trying to be a fuckboy because Ada broke your heart in secondary school. You are a grown ass man, not a child. Go to therapy or something, stop acting foolish.

Tessa

Women’s business is really not your business. Stop policing what we spend our money on, and the things we enjoy. If you find the need to talk down on something simply because women enjoy it, I would like for you to visit a prayer house because there is an evil spirit inside of you.

Halima

Stop raping and harassing women. Women are tired of having to deal with all forms of harassment on a daily basis. Check your friends when they move mad, and be a responsible member of society.

Simi

From the bottom of my heart, Waka. You people have stressed me too much, and I cannot talk long story.

Cynthia

The stress you face from society to “be a man” is caused by men. Not women. You people made the patriarchy, na una cause am.

Hassana

Homophobia is not cute. Stop disturbing gay men and stop trying to convert queer women. It does not work that way.

Chika

Read a book, so you can stop asking women to educate you.

Uma

Actually learn how to cook, before you start cooking Alfredidn’t pasta, and giving people food poisoning.
