Can Love Really Be Blind in Nigeria?

February 16, 2022

Love is Blind is a show that really intrigues me. People get on the show, date people through pods and hope they fall in love with their personalities and not just looks. Some of them have gone on to have successful love stories (there’s a particular couple I Stan so much).

I’ve been wondering what a version of Love Is Blind would look like if it was Nigerian and here are my thoughts. 

1. Nigerian women don’t have time to date 14 men at the same time

Which Nigerian woman has time to be talking to 14 men at the same time because she’s trying to find love? Men that she can’t see o. When it’s not like she’s mad. Nigerian women are not straightforward, but they still don’t have time to waste. 

2. Nigerian men are liars and all 14 women will be in love with one man

You can trust Ebuka to tell all 14 women the same story and convince each of them to stay quiet about what he’s said to them. The other men are going to try the same method and confusion is going to find its way to the show. 

3. One of the men on the show would have at least two families in different parts of Nigeria

A man would be on that show toasting 14 women, his wives would be at home wondering what’s happening. His wives at home are only going to find out about each other when they cast him on social media. Now, kasala don bust. 

4. Nigerian mums won’t let that wedding ceremony prosper

A wedding planned by the organizer of a show? Do you mean the Nigerian mum won’t be able to take over the wedding and invite Mummy Unique and all the Unique Sisters in her church? Just disown your mother or let her disown you if you’re going to try that nonsense with her. 

5. So many meals in that house, but you’ll still eat breakfast

You’ll surely eat that breakfast. Everyone is going to come out of that pod and they’re going to see their real specs. All the stories they told you in the pod will fly out of the window and everyone will go back to being in the streets. The only positive thing that might come out of that pod is the orgy that’s going to happen.

As told to David Odunlami When I try to picture what the practice of cultism looks like, I imagine people dressed in red wrappers, gathered around a T-junction, sacrificing goats and speaking incantations. Maybe I’ve watched too many Nollywood movies or maybe I just have an overactive imagination, but after a conversation with an old […]
