Some of the many many many problems in our beautiful country
Yes, undoubtedly we have issues we need to work on. Some that will most certainly take time to resolve, some that are out of our hands at the moment and some completely solved if we put our efforts in.
Let’s get into it (yuh)
The first problem: Manners or Lack thereof
To make this country that much better to live in, it is imperative (oyinbo yi por) that we have good Manners. These are just some issues I have observed from meeting people while going out and at lessons.
• Rudeness/ Disrespect: Omo people are rude ahn ahn. You obviously see that I am in front of you. Your eyes have not fallen down, so why are you pushing ? “Please excuse me” solves a lot of misunderstandings.
• Amebo: Amebo Kori Kori…….
So I’m using my phone, texting or whatever and this person has the audacity to put their face to the screen. Eweyyy. Ascuse me (in Bob’s voice) Did you buy the phone for me? Abi you subscribed for me that I didn’t know? At least if you want to gaze or feed your curiosity, don’t make it so obvious abeg.
Another aspect , NTA’s best reporter, you know all the gist of the world, well done. A lot of you don’t know how to keep secrets, your mouth is too loose. At the end of the day, you tell people about it
• Eating: Why do people have to know the sound of what someone’s eating? Sisi yen je plantain chips that’s why you can hear kra kra. Or that guy is blowing and popping gum. Oshey guiness record for blowing gum.
• Oversabi: Ahn ahn Google’s senior brother, writer of Oxford dictionary. Even if you know it all, there’s way you can say it without making everyone feel dumb.
• Personal space: Respect people’s space and property. After all, I didn’t place it on your head, why will you take my stuff without asking? That’s rubbish tbvh.
• Proud and Entitled people: Who know you? Does Google recognise you? People that think they can talk and behave to anyone how they feel are trash. Don’t be like that.
• Gaslighting: As per matches. I celebrate you. Never make people question their mental health. Don’t make people feel inferior.
There’s a simple way to solve all these problems. There are 5 magic words (you know this from primary school)
1. Please – all those WhatsApp people that will enter your dms and say send. Go and get your mattress because you will sleep there.
2. Excuse me
3. Sorry – you did something wrong, APOLOGIZE.
4. Thank you – Thank you go a long way. As small as thank you is it goes a long way.
5. Pardon me
Second Problem: Okada
Yes it would be hard to move from place to place without them but still…..
MAYBE we should all get bicycles LOL.
Let me tell you a small story.
That’s how your boy (me) went to the supermarket to buy bread on Sunday. After his purchase, he proceeded to take Okada home. Unfortunately he didn’t know what was in store for him. Sigh. In retrospect, that road home had too many road bumps. In fact the number of bumps is more than the number of Norma people in this country 😂😂😂💀. So this aboki was speeding like they were chasing him from the village. Your boy was already shaking and bouncing with each progressive bump until that fateful bump 🥲. As the bike scaled the bump, Korede found not his butt on the seat but rather his leg and the other leg on the floor. Sha I’m okay. Thanks for asking 👍🏾
Third problem: The Economic Situation
Things are definitely not easy these days. Sapa is rampant. There’s nothing we can really do right now, but in the coming days and years we can take action. Let’s vote for promising and reliable leaders. Tell your siblings, family members and various to make the right choice. No bribe or promise should dissuade our ability to choose the right candidate.
At the end of the day; TOMORROW IS IN OUR HANDS. YOU, YES YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD AS LONG AS YOU’RE A GOOD PERSON.
Love, Afro Teens❤️💡

Word from the Author
I’m quite expensive and I’m not for everyone, which is normal. Do you get?
