3 Characters That Always Show up at a Nigerian Party



Nigerians are arguably some of the most funny, colourful and entertaining characters that exist on planet earth. This fact is most evident when you attend a Nigerian party. If you’ve attended one, here are three characters that you have definitely come across at some point during the party.

The Stepper

Every Nigerian party is guaranteed to have a “Michael Jackson” of the night. He/she can be found sweating profusely in the middle of the dance floor, dancing shoes fully activated and the latest moves wholeheartedly demonstrated.

This stepper usually makes it onto a viral social media video. Whether the viral video is creating so much buzz because of the person in question’s dancing skills is definitely open to debate.

The “Eat & Quench”

We are all very familiar with the food monger at the party. This character came to the party for one reason only- to eat as much as their belly will allow and take as many take away packs as possible. If your aunt or mom has ever been the food monger, you have most likely found yourself doing the walk of shame down the party hall while carrying endless cans of Orijin Zero and containers of rice and chicken to the car.  Be strong. At least you have Orijin Zero and Jollof for lunch tomorrow.

The Party Gift Packer

There is always that one person that you see lurking, reaching and doing backflips over tables to get every single free gift that is being distributed in the party. They tap you and ask you if you’ll need the ‘Auntie Kemi Turns 50′ mug on your table and look highly disappointed when you tell them you will. The amusing thing about the party gift packer is that he/she will probably never use these things that they’re tirelessly packing. Even worse, they will probably end up giving them away as birthday, Christmas and wedding gifts. How thoughtful.

On that note, you’ve got to love these characters because they are truly the life of every Nigerian party. Don’t forget when you’re at your next Nigerian turn up to eat, drink, stay refreshed with Orijin and smile because there’s no party like a Nigerian one.

    This is deep! The man licking his five fingers. Nothing like seriously good soup to make you throw caution to the bin. Good advert!

      Man, I love this. The way that guy is licking his fingers is priceless. That’s what i do when I’m eating some delicious soup. Naija is blessed with some good foods. My Ghanaian friend asked me, why do naijas love food so much. I’m like, our food is delicious. I don’t care what anybody says, Nigeria has the best foods especially cooked by some excellent special hands.

      too much, fizz(gas), too much sugar, I haven’t tasted the one with alcohol so I cant tell what is difference except it is said to be alcohol free

      It tastes really good. But if you like alcohol, you won’t like it as there is no alcohol. I wish they would make it in PET. bottles.
