9 Reasons A Nigerian Woman Will Breakup With You

December 1, 2021

We all know that dating Nigerian women is a game of chance so here’s a guide to keep you ahead of the learning curve.

1. Lies 

A liar is a thief and a thief is… you already know the rest. 

2. Yahoo Yahoo 

Too much jewellery on one outfit. Greeting everybody on the road with “chairman” or “boss”. Smh.

3. Dirty fingernails 

What is wrong with you that you can’t wash your hands? Is that the same hand you want to chook inside me?

4. Impatience

If a Nigerian woman wanted an impatient partner, she would have just dated her mum. When she is doing her make-up, stop pacing around her — you are only making it worse. 

5. Poor hygiene 

Cleanliness is next to godliness and we all know how much Nigerian women love godly men. 

6. Yoruba men named Tunde

If you know, you know. If you don’t know, I am happy for you. May you never be in any situation that will let you know.

7. Asking if you have eaten and when you say no, they don’t send food

I don’t understand, why did you now ask please?

8. Asking women to get on top.

The only thing we ride is okada, please. Anything that will involve riding is bad energy, let it stay far away.

9. Asking us to put things in our tiny bag 

We don’t have pockets so we have to carry bags then you who has pockets will be now giving us things to keep. Why? My friend, will you put your pockets to use?
