Nigerians, Here’s What The Emoji You Use Says About You

July 27, 2020

So you’re texting and you reach a point where you don’t know how best to express yourself with words, as the Nigerian you are, you look into your emoji keyboard and see all the options. What you choose says a lot about you. Here’s a well thought out and completely accurate list of what the emojis you use say about you.

1. The Serial Killer

If you find yourself using this emoji a lot, you should be afraid of yourself. THIS IS NOT A WARM SMILE. Can you see the eyes on this motherfucker? If you listen carefully, you can hear this emoji saying “I will come to your house at night and kill your family, haha”. Change your ways

2. The Liar

Let’s face it, nothing is ever this fucking funny. NOTHING. Who are you texting and what did they say that’s making you laugh this hard. We have the answer- Nobody. You only sending this to your boss or your dad because they said a bad joke and you want money.

3. The OG

This is a top tier emoji, because what does it even mean? There’s not one situation that you cannot use this emoji in, so if you use this emoji, you’re an elite texter and you deserve all the good things in life.

4. The Old Man

Have you ever texted someone above 40? You’ll spit bars, rhyme, write a 7-pager, send videos and pictures, and they’ll just reply with one thumbs-up emoji. If you feel guilty while reading this, you should check on your grandchildren.

5. Annoying AF

When this emoji was released, all the annoying people who send 14-minute voice notes and forwarded messages threw a party because this is what they’d been waiting for. Seeing this emoji just stresses the brain out and we should probably start a petition to have it deleted from Kanye’s internet ASAP.

6. The Drama Queen

May we not have a reason to shed tears o. Why will you just start crying? Look at your emoji keyboard now (do it). If this emoji is part of your top 5, you’re a drama queen and you should chill.
