Do Nigerians Know How To Have Fun? by aribisala0(m): 12:23pm On Apr 08, 2011
in discussing this topic i woul like people to consider not only themselves but their parents and granparents if possible and all social classes,married and single as well as families.
my theory is that most of our recreational activity,taking people out in nigeria centres on food and drink and we do not engage in other forms of recreation compared to other races/peoples.
typically a naija lad taking a babe out would mean restaurant nightclub or bar ;  peppersoup suya isiewu that sort of thing.
now we have cinemas, bowling,live shows stand up comedy etc and a few other things in lagos abuja etc but how widespread are these sorts of things in the general population not just the elite.
please remember we are talking of ALL age groups and classes

Sadly Nigerians do not know how 2 have fun


An average Nigerian has these in their head

male

1) Money
2) Beer
3) sex
4) More sex
5) even more sex


Women
1) Black berry
2) Brazillian hair
3) Manicure and pedicure and legi-cure
4) Louisvuitton and aba bend down select boutique clothes
5) Nairaland  cool cool
6) How to Gold dig from the next man  grin  grin


Nigerians have never gone camping, wake up in the morning go site seeing, go swimming ( even bar-beach dey hard them go )
They dont like travelling to see other places in the country except its for  business or when they are simply going to see their Boyfriends or sugar daddies in another state

An Average Nigerian in total == RIGID


Thank Gawd im not like that

There is time for everything

Thats why there are holidays, Nigerians do not take walk in the parks

even when there are holidays

They rather gather themselves in a beer parlour eat catfish and drink beer then go home and have sex

and thats it.

How many nigerians know how to go camping or even have picnics

Re: Do Nigerians Know How To Have Fun? by terimama: 1:04pm On Apr 09, 2011
It is so true that we in this part of d world donno how to catch fun. Fun in d mind of an average nija is sin to his soul n his pocket. Those who even make d effort just go to bars n night clubs.
There was a youth program held in kad wher youth were to draft a manifesto for our candidates for this elections. Various topics were debated upon n issues raised. When it got to discussion about sports n recreation more emphasis was placed on sports. When i tried to talk about creation of relaxation spots, parks, gardens n open spaces in all local govt areas i felt all eyes on me, funny enough i had no seconda. Later a friend asked me if all the bars n hotels weren't enough for recreation. Our mentality!

Re: Do Nigerians Know How To Have Fun? by omobadan(m): 2:49pm On Apr 09, 2011
Nigerians know how to have fun! What you lot consider fun and what constitute fun to the average Nigerian might be different. Someone was saying a walk in the park. How many parks do you have in Naija? There aren't many outdoor stuff for Nigerians. So, thaty's why joints are places people frequent a lot. @ Sessy2, abi o!

Nigerians don't know how to have fun?  ehehee, Yawa don gas o! Nigerians are the life of the paRRy. Even white girls that think they're crazy, ain't gat nothing on me/us. Trust me and the girls. cheesy wink

Anyways, Nigerians do have fun, it just depends on what kind of Nigerians you choose to hang out with, or If you yourself are a boring pelzon.  undecided

aribisala0:


for those living in the west have you ever gone bunjee jumping,bowling, to a football game,swimming etc with another nigerian?

Bowling? Football games? swiimming?, pfffttttt, That's what we do every mundane weekend, and are those the activities you consider fun? embarassed  I now know why you think Nigerians are boring, *smh*
Re: Do Nigerians Know How To Have Fun? by BABE3: 6:05pm On Apr 09, 2011

Re: Do Nigerians Know How To Have Fun? by Nobody: 6:06pm On Apr 09, 2011
Never heard of Nigerian having 'fun fun' most of the ones I know in the States are up tight and dont even go to the
African parties much less mingle with other Nigerians. tongue
Re: Do Nigerians Know How To Have Fun? by 190: 6:17pm On Apr 09, 2011
Babe i wanna ask u a question

Apart from going to open eatries to eat cat fish with stout and isi-ewu ( every where )

Going to bar beaches ( Lagos, delta,Port, calabar )

and swimming in pools ( in hotels )

Cinemas ( Lagos and Abuja )

Nite parties ( everywhere )

What other fun do Nigerians indulge in, I have 1st hand experience in these things cos i was once a witness and did all

what i listed out, I tried walking around parks ( Millienium garden ) in abuja but it wasnt my thing and my Nigerians are still clueless on what

Relaxation in parks could be,

Tell me what other fun is out there for Nigerians again,
Re: Do Nigerians Know How To Have Fun? by BABE3: 6:21pm On Apr 09, 2011
^^I see you're still living in your/our village! I thought Inky was supposed to take you to the city. What happened?

@ 190
**smh*** So basically you consider a walk in the park (lmao) "fun" compared to going to the movies, clubbing, eating out, and going to the beach. I now know the problem. The problem is you. You don't know how to have fun! Go and learn. wink cheesy

By the way, a walk in the park? fun? lol (I can't stop laughing o) So what excatly is amusing about the walk.

--the walk itself?
--or, the trees?
--or the little kids playing around?
--or, the dogs?
--or couples making out?

so tell me, what exactly is amusing you about a walk in the park, *smh**

**singing Beyonce's Upgrade you***

"Papa lemme Upgrade you" wink
