How I do when people who do not live in Ibadan say things like:
“The Ancient City of Ibadan”
- Bhet wait a minute sef, Is it even more ancient than Lagos?
“Ibadan, The City of brown roofs”
- The “brown roofs” are not even up to 25 percent of the city, but you must display your lack of knowledge.
“So you people have a ” Insert Name of Popular Brand” In Ibadan?”
- No o! we are using the one that you borrowed us
“Shebi you are from Ibadan, how come you don’t speak like other Ibadan people?”
- Are you minding me? Shebi they use to distribute it to us when we are born, abi ?
“Ibadan is “So and So”. I know because I stayed in Ibadan for two hours in 2001″
- Really? tell me something
“So You people have “Insert Interesting place to hangout or thing to do” in Ibadan?”
- Noo o!! We cover ourselves with leaves and swing from trees all day long
“Ibadan is so wack and boring, there is even nothing interesting to do here”
- Instead of you to just confess that you are broke
“This Ibadan is too full of razz Fuji musicians”
- And so what? It is a criminal offence?
