How Are Nigerian Women Having Fun These Days?

July 22, 2022

I believe we can all agree that Nigerian women are amazing. Feel free to fight your keyboard if you don’t agree. When they aren’t doing awesome things like protesting for change or calling guys “big head”, they also know how to have fun.

Here’s a list of things Nigerian women do to chop the lives of their heads:

Brunch dates with the girls

Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without featuring creamy pasta, bottomless mimosas and overpriced desserts.

Indulging in self-care

After a long week of battling capitalism and our patriarchal society, enjoying alone time while doing self-care stuff like wash day, exfoliation and generally kick back and relax.

Increasing wickedness

Since y’all won’t let the “Nigerian women are wicked” trope rest, it’s only fitting that they become even wickeder. To whom much is given, you know the rest.

Drinking male tears

The male gender will always find one thing to cry out about — whether it’s for eating four eggs or expecting you to order meat pie and water. And what do the gals do? They drink and enjoy the tears.

Going shopping

Not because they really need it, but because they absolutely can.

Telling people’s secrets to their partners

Before you judge them, ever heard of communication in relationships? Don’t worry, your secret is safe with them (and their partners and besties).

Flirting with insults

The average Nigerian woman’s safe space is in calling a love interest “goat” and “big head”.

Bingeing their favourite shows 

After a long day of wickedness and insult-flirting, a good binge is very necessary.

Practising being good wives

Of course, it’s not right to end the day without sending a “have you eaten?” text. Wife material, 100 yards.

Sleeping

If you think sleeping isn’t fun, you must not have a job.
