Nigerian Men, Here’s What Your Pants Say About You

June 22, 2021

We’ve told you what your footwear says about you. Now listen, here’s what the pants you wear say about you. 

Did we lie?.

1. These…

We need to address the most pertinent issues first. If you wear these pants, we have a simple message for you: Stop doing fraud. Have you ever met a yahoo boy? They all have these trousers. Why? 

2. Baggy jeans

If you wear baggy jeans, it means you are in the wrong country in the wrong era. You’re not meant to be in Nigeria. Have you watched all those Black American movies? That’s what you think life is about. You think you’re a gangster. Better wake up. Buhari is your president. 

3. Ankara pants

Brother Pius, what time is youth fellowship starting?

4. These sexy pants

People that wear these perfectly tailored trousers think they’re better than everybody because they have 8-6 jobs at the bank. But the question we have for you is, when last did you call your mother? Ehn? 

5. Short shorts

If you see anyone wearing short shorts, bill them. They have money. Bastard money. 

6. Ripped jeans

7. Sweatpants

8. Skinny jeans

If you wear these, we don’t have anything to tell you. We need you to tell us things. We need you to answer questions. The first question is “Why”? 

The second question is “Why?” Do you want to guess what the third question is? 

9. We don’t even know what these are called. 3/4s?

If you wear these, just go to a mirror and look at yourself right now. Have you seen it? Can you see yourself? Very good. Now go and remove them. 

10. Chinos
