9 Ways To Deal With An Overly Persistent Man On Social Media

August 17, 2021

I don’t know who told men that persistence is key, but someone needs to tell them that it’s just harassment. No one should have to deal with an overly persistent man. But in the event that there’s a man refusing to take no for an answer, here are some extreme measures you can take.

1. Report his account

Report his account on whatever social media platform he is disturbing you on. If you have his full name, report him to the authorities too. No one should have to deal with an overly persistent man.

2. Send his picture to a babalawo

Sometimes, it’s okay to let other forces fight for you. If he can move stupid, you can move stupider. Ojoro cancels ojoro.

3. Take him up in prayers

A prayerful person is Jesus’ workshop or how does that go? There’s nothing he can’t do sha. But only after you’ve reported him to physical people oh.

4. Give his phone number to your Dad

It’s been proven time and time again that the only people men fear are other men. Let your dad put the fear of God in him and watch him leave you alone.

5.  Embarrass him on social media

It’s never a good choice to stay silent about things like this. Name and shame him if he is making you uncomfortable. If you can’t, get a friend to do it for you.

6. Use his picture to market penis enlargement cream

It’s safe to say that if he sees you outside social media, he will run for his dear life.

7. Exchange your sim with an aboki

When he hears someone with a thick Hausa accent saying “Salaam alaikum” at the beginning of the call, he’ll get the message.

8. Donate his number to network service providers

Just text his number to all the network service providers and tell them to call him whenever they’re bored. They already do it anyway. If he can be overly persistent for no reason, he can take it. 

9. Send his chats to his mother

Find your inner detective and look for her Facebook page. Send her all his chats to you, especially if he sent nude pictures. She deserves to know that she raised someone that is not okay.

And she needs to know.
