Lately, on Twitter, there’s this trend where someone tweets a sentence in the English language and then provides an English word that captures what that sentence would sound like if spoken by Ibadan people.
Language really is a funny thing. These ten tweets prove that.
PS: You’ll need an Ibadan person, or a Yoruba person, to read these tweets to you.
I imagine them screaming this at each other during a political meeting.
The market woman when you ask her if she can blend your pepper for you.
Imagine an Ibadan happening babe saying this in defence of herself.
This is the picture in my head:
I’M IN TEARS!
When you ask an Ibadan tech bro if he has ever sold media.
Ibadan people telling you how they caught a criminal.

LMAO y’all are out of pocket for this.
😭 😭 😭
It’s the twerking for me 😭
This is where I draw the line, please. I might need to contest for a political post in Ibadan someday. 😭
