New Comedy Web Series “Things Nigerians Say” is telling Authentic Nigerian Stories! WATCH Episode 1 – The Nigerian Tailor



Life According to Nigerians” is a network created for one purpose – to tell authentic Nigerian Stories. The network just released its first short series titled “Things Nigerians Say” which is an ode to the Nigerian people, the things they say (and do) that make them truly Nigerian.

The series is aimed at being a satirical window into the happenings of the Nigerian service industry. The first episode features the infamous Nigerian Tailor – which is a very relatable experience for most Nigerians. We all have a story to tell about the Nigerian tailor.

In the words of the creator John Adewusi “The idea was born after getting tired of complaining about certain services, realizing early that we are special people and so are our experiences. So why not make something out of these complaints.”

The series will run weekly and is executively produced by Rotimi Akinyele and John Adewusi.

Watch below.

    Omg great concept ?❤️ Totally true, the struggle with Nigerian tailor is real. When they argue with how beautiful it is you just have to carry it and go or tell them to loosen everything you don’t want ??

    Haha, nice one. So true to life. A few comments on the video production: subtitles could be added when the actress is not speaking in English so that all audiences are able to flow with the content, and some upbeat comedy-type music could have been playing in the background, especially when the text was showing on the screen. Good work.

    • I agree

      I agree Molarah I was going to send this to my foreign friends who used to live in Nigeria and enjoy “Nigeria-ness” but I’m thinking they’ll struggle to understand some parts of it which will take the fun out of it.

    This is hilarious. The actor did so well. Whether she followed the script to a T (which was well written) or her improv na die, there was no wasted time or scene. Una well done.

      That’s Bisola Ayieola. Chick is hee-la-rious and so apt at interpreting comedic roles (that character she played in “Husbands of Lagos Season 2” slayed me ??).

      She is one to look out for.
