What Your Favourite Swallow Says About You

August 26, 2021

Almost every week, you eat one type of swallow or the other. So over time, you’ve come to develop a favourite. Well, we’re here to tell you what your favourite swallow says about you.

1) Amala

People who have Amala as their favourite food act like die-hard music stans. At least the music stans can say they admire a real person. These people are ready to go to war over swallow????? They are not just lovers of it, they are a legion. If Amala is your favourite swallow, you need to rethink your life choices. What are you doing wrong? Who did you offend? Are your village people working overtime again?

We at Zikoko want you to love yourself. Please.

2) Starch

King of enjoyment and good vibes. Starch lovers and beer drinkers are the same kind of people. Easy going and just trying to have a good time. They don’t insert themselves in unnecessary discourse because they’re not trying to prove anything to anyone. Overall best in best.

3)Eba

You are a very unappreciated and simple person. Life does not have to be hard for you, and everyone should adopt your style of life. People might call you lazy, but just tell them you are on energy-saving mode.

4) Fufu

Looks and smell don’t matter to you much. What matters to you is how something makes you feel on the inside. You are a very personality focused person, and more people should strive to be like you. You eat rubbish, but you don’t care. As long as you are happy, that’s what happens. You love your joy and don’t let anyone take that away from you.

5) Pounded yam

This might be the single most over-hyped swallow in all of existence. It is too selective, and as such doesn’t always slap. Pounded yam goes well with one soup (like some other brown swallow). If pounded yam is your favourite swallow, you act a lot like whiskey drinkers. You think you’re better than everyone, but you’re not.

6) Lafun

You did not obey the fanfare of Amala eaters, but instead took the road less travelled. I applaud your independence. You have a strong will. Also, people are always looking for your trouble by saying Amala and Lafun are the same things. They’re unclutured.

7) Semo

I think it is quite obvious what Zikoko thinks about semo, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be honest. If semo is your favourite swallow, you deserve respect. For you to be able to withstand insults and curses every day and continue to eat what is probably Nigeria’s most hated swallow, you deserve an award.

You are resilient, steadfast, and not influenced by peer pressure. Unfortunately, your taste is also trash, so that kind of spoils all your amazing qualities.

Some of you might not agree, but I think a friendship breakup is a little more painful than a romantic one. Most people already know what to do when a romantic relationship ends, but the demise of a true friendship is so much tougher to navigate. So, I decided to ask a few Nigerians to […]
