10 Hilarious Tweets That Describe Nigerian Parents’ Relationship With WhatsApp

December 17, 2019

WhatsApp has been around for some time now. Nigerian parents have left their comfort zones and jumped on the Instant Messaging app. However, the ways they use it leave much to be desired. The following tweets are proof of that:

1. No time for pretence.

2. This sub!

3. The average Nigerian parent ‘nose’ best, after all.

4. Didn’t they say people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones?

5. The unbreakable bond they have with this.

6. Do they even read before they forward these things?

7. Have you ever seen a Nigerian Parent throw away valuable lecture material?

8. This could be our chance to beat them at their game.

9. Thank God for growth.

10. For all their talk about control, they don’t know when to stop.
