Look like their idol

Beg those babalawos in your Instagram DMs to change your looks. If they can’t help, perm your hair, comb it out, and pray to your ancestors. If everything else fails, maybe the thought will count. 

Get into K-drama.

How do you think you’ll be able to have a conversation with them if you’ve never seen any k-drama? Even if you want to cheat in an exam, you will read small na. Also, don’t just watch the popular ones. Try watching the not-so-popular ones for extra points. 

Always have an umbrella

You have to own an umbrella, and it has to be yellow. I promise it’s a thing. You never know when it’ll rain out of the blue, and you can hand your umbrella to them while you walk away, soaking wet. A for alaye; you’ll win Best in Romanzz. Buy your umbrella today.

Upgrade your fashion sense

I know Nigeria is hot, but you need to buy lots of coats, suits and white shirts. If you can’t look like their K-drama idol, you can at least dress the part. Plus, what’s the harm in having a good sense of style? It’s a good side attraction.
