Every day on the Nigerian Internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we read their rants, opinions, perspectives on political and social issues, etc. Sometimes, they are just downright ridiculous. We make it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.
Here are the ones we saw today:
So we are back to the days of long queues at the US embassy? This is the second time the US embassy will suspend the Dropbox service in the last 20years. Are they worried that more people are flying out with no intention to return? Closing boarder strategically?

Are you a JJC? When Nigerians fly out, they don’t like to return
Nooooooooooooooooooo. We laughed at him. Ignored him. Underfunded him. Mocked his English. Turned him into a meme. Then he went abroad. Won everything. Was celebrated. Promoted. And now we want him back. Fuck you all. https://t.co/AYCkvyrPxr

You have sense.
But Fola didn’t insult Mike Bamiloye sha. She thought they were poorly researched, low budget, and scarred people for life. She thought their movies weren’t good enough etc. That’s not an insult. But we live in a society where criticising/questioning older people = insult.

Is Mike Bamiloye still relevant?
Mike Bamiloye made strong and lasting impacts on everyone regardless of their faith, than many of you or your Dads can ever think of making in a century, but it’s Twitter, you can drag the man because his son is having an opinion you don’t agree with. Uncouth & stupid generation

OK, I have no comeback for this.
Nigeria is that abusive, toxic, psychopathic boyfriend that treats you like shit all the time. The moment you try tobuild your confidence and leave him, he kidnaps you and turns you into his hostage.
Horror movie country. https://t.co/glczfRxwot
