6 Peculiar Things About Ilorin People

November 29, 2020

Ilorin is one of the best places to live in Nigeria. But there are a number of things that make their people peculiar. Here’s a short list of some of those things:

1. They are very chill

They don’t have that gra-gra Lagosians have an excess of. In Ilorin, if you do gra-gra, you’re suffering yourself. They’re so chill that they don’t rush to open shops in the morning. If you plan to cook very early, buy your ingredients the night before.

2. They are very hospitable

Very. They are willing to go the extra mile to make you comfortable. Just don’t abuse their kindness.

3. They are always ready to give you hot-hot

The best way to get on their bad side is to dress like a Lagos person. We won’t tell you just what to wear, but imagine putting on something risque and stepping out in Ilorin. Prepare to be the recipient of unwanted stares of disgust and wanton lust.

3. They take their religion seriously.

The Muslims and the Christians, they both work on their relationship with God very hard. So hard that a woman can be whipped if she visits certain places on Friday without a headscarf or in a sleeveless dress.

4. The dating circle is large but also very small

We’ll leave it at that. If you know you know.

5. They have Unilorin connections.

That is, anyone Ilorin person you meet knows someone who knows someone who knows someone who works in Unilorin. For real.
