Only in 9ja

I saw this guy on my way home 4rm work wearing a shirt tucked in, selling some towel holders for d bathroom as in d guy must av worked 9-5, and he still hit d streets to go hustling as soon as he gets off work, or u see people turning their cars to cabs for fuel money, or u see a 6 year old hawking pure water on the streets weaving in, and out of traffic like it was a ballet its only in 9ja.

Sad as it is they talk about the global economic crisis and how people r being laid off but in 9ja we av always had crisis and, we still dey buy cars, dey build houses, we dey go club dey pop bottles upon bottles, dey throw parry like say tommorow no dey, dey go spend summer for wherever come dey oppress u for ur own country sef na only 9ja.

Some people go dey feel bad say dem get pimples or their nose no straight, dem go just run mental carry guns fuck everybody up for school, or take razor slice him wrists, jump from bridge, make dem come 9ja see as things dey go, no light, no water, corruption is rife throughout the land, but still we keep grinding believing dat e go better..
Say wat u will about 9ja, but the truth is in d words of DJ Khaled "we taking over" but its one country at a time

9ja rules

  8. You painted a true and vivid picture of 9ja situation but one thing i can't deny Nigerians is their ability to hold things together even when they are falling apart.
