Are You Looking To Stress Your Nigerian Grandparents A Little? We Have A Few Tips

May 15, 2020

Nigerian grandparents are mostly chill and they are unproblematic, which is good. But if you’re bored and you think you could handle seeing them riled up, you should try one of the following tips.

1. Tell them you’ve not eaten

Ah, they want to kill my child.

2. Now, when they cook for you, tell them you’re not hungry

Evil forces are at play here.

3. When they dash you money, refuse it

They will always see you as their 5-year old sweetheart

4. Don’t call anyone older than you brother or sister 

Any form of disrespect cannot stand in their house

5. Don’t greet them properly

For example, are you a well-bred Yoruba boy if you prostrate and your chest and chin don’t touch the ground?

6. Give or collect something from them with your left hand

Just slap them and get it over with.

7. Nod your head when they’re talking to you

Are you a lizard?
