Nigerians are a special breed of people. They know how to make everything a joke. In Nigeria, almost everything we say is laced with sarcasm. Let me quickly explain what a Nigerianism is all about.
Nigerianism is one of those things only Nigerians say too often and they already look normal.
Yes, nonsense is a word but Nigerians now use this to insult people. In Nigeria, nonsense can be associated with a human being.
Lasisi: I am better than you
Anayo: Come on shut up dia! Nonsense
The combination of "My friend" and this look just means you are no longer their friend at that moment. It is usually used when a Nigerian elder is less friendly. Take examplee:
Child: Daddy, I want to eat indomie
Dad: My friend, will you shut up there?
Usually used by Nigerian kids as the default pronoun for everyone who is not trying to be specific.
E.g: They said you should bring your money
usually used to express disappointment by Nigerian parents.
Child: I can't wash plates mummy
Mum; It's like something is wrong with your head
To confuse this for a normal polite question.
"I sent you message and you are using met press phone, are you okay?"
This is not a farewell wish or anything like that.
this is the Nigerian version of "I told you so"
This is mostly used when Nigerians are surprised about an event. Most times, they replace the word "how".
Often used to expose someone who doesn't look good. Sometimes, it's when the insults have entered your skin. This can prove to be lenders of the last resort
