7 Places Nigerians Lose Their Home Training

January 20, 2021

If you ever want to see a Nigerian lose their home training, then go to any of these seven places.

1) NIN registration centre

One thing that does not mix well is Nigerians and deadlines. It is catastrophic, and destined for disaster. Somebody’s father probably came home complaining about how one ‘small boy’ insulted him at Alausa because of NIN.

2) Dance floor

Nigerians love to dance, and some of the dances they love are very energetic. Your friend is getting married and all is well. They are slow dancing and playing some blues, then suddenly Afrobeats comes on. Everyone and their dad will lose their mind and dance like they have ants in their trousers.

3) Wedding reception

A hungry man might be an angry man, but a hungry Nigerian man is a man without home training. All bets are off. Ever been at a wedding reception when the food is about to finish? Somebody’s grandmother would lie ten time that she hasn’t eaten and waiters and guests sometimes throw hands.

4) Church

What better place to lose home training than in the house of your father? It could be because praise and worship made you receive the spirit, or because the usher seized your phone. All reasons are valid.

5) Viewing Centers

I mean, what do you expect from here? Beer, semi good food and sports means your home training did not even stand a chance.

6) Bus Stops

From the moment you choose to enter a bus, just prepare yourself. It’s really not a joke when they say that only 2 people are sane in this country. People will remove suit jackets just so they can fight with conductors. Home training does not exist at bus stops.

7) Shoprite bread queue

You will think a supermarket is the place Nigerians will finally behave, but no. When there are limited resources, even the most behaved Nigerians lose all forms of home training. The British accent will change to pidgin, and someone might get slapped.
