We are now in 2019 and the Nigerian internet hasn’t lost a beat, still roiling in its unmistakable identity. From bants, jokes, opinions and commentary on our cultural and political landscape, or just saying something outrightly dumb, the internet is full of people keeping our interest piqued.

You’re not anyone’s first choice. You’re not anyones favorite. People may tell you you mean alot to them and that you’re special to them but just know there’s someone they will always choose over you.
