How to Spot a K-Pop Fan in Nigeria

April 19, 2022

Finding a k-pop stan in Nigeria is not as hard as you think. If you’re looking for a small community of people with the best taste in music, you’re reading the right article. Here are ways to spot a K-pop fan in Nigeria. 

1. They randomly speak Korean in normal conversation

They don’t even care if you understand or not; they’ll just start talking, expecting you to fill in the blanks on your own. If you meet anyone that casually uses “Oppa” or “Eomma” in a regular conversation, it’s safe to ask if they’re a K-pop stan.

2. They behave like cultists

If you see anyone telling someone else about their favourite musician, and it looks like they are trying to initiate the person into a cult that belongs to seven talented, good-looking men, best believe you’ve found your people. 

3. Stand in the middle of a market and shout a random band member’s name

Naturally, everyone is going to turn around and hiss at you, but look out for the people that will smile, then run after them — you’re looking for community, and the violent take it by force after all. 

4. Carry a big speaker around to play K-Pop songs 

Many people will swear at you — As they should, because what in the nuisance? But your people will start dancing because they can’t resist it.

5. Post a random K-Pop idol’s picture on your status 

No K-pop stan can resist the urge to comment when they see a picture of their fave. Plus, it’ll give you a chance to weed out the anti-K-pop people on your contact list. 

6. Ask around for people that never have data

That’s how you know a proper K-pop Stan tbh. They spend all their money buying data to stream live videos of concerts because K-pop artists don’t tour African countries like that.
