We Don Crase Finish


This was one of those ongoing numerous congratulatory adverts for Mr. president and any other new person in power. I am speechless.

Not only is the President honest, he is now angelic - My friends must not see this at work, else I have answer silly questions about being Nigerian - I have had enough already, your title says it all.

In short Miss Iyanda, u are feeling me too much! Imagine the consternation! First place my eyes went when i finally took in the advert was for the sponsor's name.

Notin wey person eye no go see for ds naija.

*stares with mouth wide open, sits down, calls flatmate to come and see also, flatmate lol, scratches head and moves onto another thing*

This goes to show that even among Nigerian literates, there are still peeps that are so deeply rooted in stupidity, mediocrity and archaic.

This is shameful and silly. This speaks volumes to the mentality of the sponsor and the publisher.

snazzy said...

it's a lie!! this was not in a paper, it had to be on the road in katsina somewhere not in a national daily, come on say it a'int so! We need to go pay a visit to Chief Okeze, I mean there are some things u just don't do. This has taken arse kissing to a whole new level. Thanks for this, it made my day.

Shio.....

When I first saw the title, I said "Funmi don come again o, me i no go follow her crase". But when I read, I fully agreed. Either I'm so crazy such that I'm seeing double in that picture ... or everybody don crase, including the person wey dey the picture. Na Angel dey crown person now? So that means the person who did the crowning (the one who reloacted to Sango Otta)is an angel? Is that what the picture is trying to say?

Ojigbijigbi!I am overwhelmed.

boom said...

he already has his own damn cap. redundant, redundant, redundant. nigeria is not a kingdom; it is a republic - a bloated republic that hobbles around on crutches, but a REPUBLIC nonetheless. doubly redundant.

p.s. my eyesight is awful! what does the writing top right say?

boom said...

...also, if the crown was custom-made, it's bound to fit*. it's common sense, really. leave God and the angels out of this.

*i don't care if he would've also had a landslide victory in a free and fair election. if a country of over 150 million can willfully elect such mediocrity, the end is most definitely nigh. if this is the best we can do, may God not let us do our worst.

p.s. @ africanloft: 'silly' is the word.

YOU ARE KIDDING ME RIGHT? SHAME, SHAME, SHAME. WHERE DID THIS SORT OF THING EMANATED FROM?

catwalq said...

This is how it starts; you know, the loss of perspective.
When accolades are being heaped at your feet without you having done anything, then how wouudln't you loose touch with the realities of your responsibilities and imagine that you are more than you are?

Mr.Fineboy said...

What the....? I'm speechless...we truly don crase finish. Some people would do ANYTHING for a sweet position or contract...God help Nigeria.

internationalhome said...

Perhaps this says more than we think. In fact the poignancy should not be ignored. On one hand, there's the divine white creature from abroad/above who has such a deciding power in the Nigerian question. On the other hand, there is the representation format of the picture itself! Nigeria and its hidden mysteries!

Nigerians often give new leaders a free pass and wants to see a messiah in everyone of them...and here you have it. A messianic symdrome at work in a canvass!

36 INCHES OF BROWN LEGS said...

very aptly put: we don crase finish!!!!

~Mimi~ said...

me i dont see the reason why everyone is screaming.it is just a case of advertisement/ass kissing gone wrong.

MsMak said...

Erm, am i the only one who noticed that the 'angel' is blonde haired and oyibo? So, does that mean he was hand-picked/chosen/pre-approved/vetted by the invisible hands of the West? Or our continued worship of all things oyibo/foreign.

Lol! This ad is sooo insightful we dont even realize it."Emancipate yourself from mental slavery..." easily comes to mind.

Cheetarah said...

its not 'we' its 'they don chop craze finish', but this is mad funny,only in naija bloody psychophants!

Funmi Iyanda said...

@pink-satin, bright idea. how did you go from thinking...uuumm, hows about a singing competition in blogosvile to actually putting it together? l want to see how the process goes as a test run for using similar strategies for advocacy. Sady, l no fit sing at all at all but if the prize is good l can do a Milli Vanilli (betrayed my age big time) on you.

@l no know book o.
