Proudly Nigerian: The Funny Post

I am Nigerian and I am proud - mostly because of what a lot of Nigerians have achieved and it's nice to hear that we are sharp people with that Vavavoom! I met a South African guy last weekend and he goes "well most of the Africans people meet at uni are Nigerian" then come the Ghanaians (yea they do try) and then Kenyans...hehe but we are the 'ish'.

I also love Nigeria because we come up with all sorts! As innn! Take for instance this young lad, men he made my whole afternoon, it was filled with shock and laughter! No really WHAT IS THIS?

If you are still totally amused or in shock like me, this is the original (i.e. what he was trying to copy)


LOLLLL, anywhoo! After you've finished laughing, I'd like to introduce a friend into Blogville - her blog is titled A Gold Mine and she is a crazy chic - also Proudly Nigerian. At least I hope! So welcome her to Blogville please.


Now for some real Proudly Nigerian stuff. In line with the Federal Government's renewed drive to encourage exports, a group of experts have come up with suggestions on how to improve the image of our local products by making their names attractive and in line with International Standards on exports. Feel free to offer suggestions:


  • Kuli kuli - Peanut bars
  • Donkuwa/ Robo Alata - Hot Charcolit nuts
  • Kilishi - Beef Crackers
  • Dundun - Yamarita (WHATTT)
  • Fried Potato - Potarita (lolll right)
  • Pako/Atu (Chewing stick) - Dental Stickos
  • Boli - Barbecue Plantain
  • Roasted corn - Corn Aflame
  • Eko - Corn Jellos
  • Moin moin - Bean pie
  • Isi ewu - Goat-hed o lickins' (remember ur fingers)
  • Garri - Grain o' fibres
  • Bokoto/ Nkwobi - Hoof salad
  • Ogi/Akamu - Corn Caramel
  • Puff Puff - Energy Buns
  • Chin Chin - Dough Rocks
  • Zobo - Juice Rosa Afrik
  • Kunnu - Grain Alive
  • Burundi - Cocno Jaw-Breakers
  • Bread and Akara - Bean cake Burger
  • Ofada rice - Unpolished Rice for Vegetarians
  • Adalu - Lentils & Grain Salad

This is a joke right? P.S. I did not come up with them.

Ok I’m @ work now..so I can’t view any of those clips…but can’t wait to see them….need some laughter in my life @ the moment.

Ok as for that list u really have to be taking the piss as in really pulling the hell out of our legs…
As in Yamarita and Potarita….who the hell sat down and got paid to compose this list.
I feel them though on the Kuli kuli,Pako-possibly should have been called Dental Sticks ,Boli,Moin Moin,and Chin chin..cause really I couldn’t think of any other names myself.

How in the name of God is bean cake burger going to be appeasing to the common man on the street from now on?? "Abegi Mama Kasali give me 3 bean cake burger…make I take quench my hunger"…chill abeg.

Ofada rice-Unpolished Rice for Vegetarians abi????When does it become veggie before or after it is drained with meat,shaki,kpomo, and assorted meat stew??

I’m proudly Nigerian…but our people should chill for us small sef!!!.
Before u know Kunu drink will now be called “Fermented Cow Breast Milk in a bottle. .KAI!!!

Biodun said...

The guy has to be on somethin for realz, lol
Fried yam is called actually "yamaritas" @ TFC, lol love them by the way
I love the name of Eko n which one is energy buns, lol...nice post girl!

Pink Panther said...

Are they having a laugh?? They most certainly are!!

How exactly are these names attractive??

I am sorry but Fried potato is fried potato!! It is not that hard! Geez!!

Eko – Corn Jellos – they’re killing me!! Lol

Puff Puff – lmao – ‘Energy’ buns!! Sorry. But where does the energy bit come from??

Chin Chin – Dough ‘Rocks’ – well I guess I can see the link

Out of curiosity what exactly is Donkuwa/ Robo Alata - Hot Charcolit nuts , even the new name is not ringing any bells..

@ Dimples: ‘Kunu drink will now be called “Fermented Cow Breast Milk in a bottle’…. U had better copyright your new name for the Kunu drink… they might just add it to their list.

@ Anyone

this is where I shame myself!!

1.Is Ofada rice from Ofada?? And Where exactly is Ofada?? I asked Mona once but she just kept laughing and I never got an answer!!! It is either in Ogun State or Oyo State.. I know that much… I have been to Ofada before but I was never really paying attention so I really don’t know where it is and asking them now would be a serious shock to their system.. Please have a laugh at my expense but I would also really like an answer so as to avoid shaming myself in future…

2. Is it Gurudi or Burundi? For the number of years that I have been on this earth I have called it Gurudi so please tell me that they are wrong and I am right.

As for those names...

WTF is Corn Aflame? what is wrong with keeping roasted corn + who the hell is going to go to the shops and order 'HOOF SALAD' or 'Cocno Jaw-Breakers'?? Ridiculous, your friend was right, Nigerians do come up with all sorts.

Viagra UK said...

Some components of the herbal Viagra can also cause depression, dyspepsia, headaches, common colds, etc. when used separately. For these reasons, the use of herbal Viagra online are also considered skeptically by medical experts. However, the general idea is that they are much safer than the natural Cialis Online and more usable for a wide number of people.
