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’s our list from today:
- Nnedi Okorafor
The “not-all-men” response when you bring up problems of patriarchy is a way of maintaining the status quo, whether you intend to or not.
If you feel the need to say it, close your mouth and don’t and watch what happens.

2. Senator Shehu Sani
When you tell the truth to those who don’t want to hear it or to those who defend those who don’t want to hear it,they will either say you are either aggrieved or ambitious or both;they have forgotten that grievances and ambitions were their thrusts to power.

Uhm! Double standards.

People throw shades at what they aspire to be in other people..
Whoever shades you or your craft or your being or your business is only wishing they have your LIFE..
They preach about security the most but they are the most INSECURE people ever liveth..
