When a young Nigerian man has just come into money, he is easy to know. You have to look out for the signs so you can know how to make your move. Here is a list of eleven signs you should watch out for. Don’t say Zikoko did not do anything for you.

1. He’s starting to grow a potbelly.

The potbelly of a young Nigerian man who has just come into money is certainly not as big as this. It’s a small, blossoming thing, just to show that he has started eating a little too well and does not really have time for the gym because he is too busy counting his new money. Look around, ladies and gentlemen, these men are everywhere.

2. He wears Sauvage by Dior or Club De Nuit Intense.

This is the signature scent. You better get familiar with it. It is the smell of money.

3. He visits Unilag In the evening.

We are not going to speak much on this. But if you know, you know.

4. He has white native, both up and down and Agbada.

You will probably call him a demon, but he knows he is an angel and doesn’t want you to stain his white. White wey don stain.

5. With Man purse

This is a necessary piece.

6. He’s always tweeting about how his parents now ask him for advice.

It’s because he has money, my dears. Who sabi the poor pikin?

7. He says things like “I will marry this woman.”

He’s an intentional man, please. No time for back and forth, he is a talk-and-do.

8. He cheats only once a week

Because he’s busy making money the rest of the week. Can’t fumble the bag because of mekwe.

9. He either drives a Corolla or a Lexus or he’s driving a Toyota and aiming for Lexus.
