Top 15 Things Nigerian Kids Used to Do in the 80s/90s That Are No More in Vogue


There were many things we grew up doing as teens in the 80’s that does not happen anymore, here is my top 15

1. ‘Bouncing’:

As a young gee bouncing is a must to do (whoever gave it that name?), it involves you walking in a ‘swagly’ manner in such a way to depict big boy. It took years before I stopped (only God knows how) but it was a serious swag then, and was for only boys. Now people just prefer sagging…

2. Hanging Towel:

as a ‘big boy’ then you needed a medium sized bathroom towel hung around your shoulders. You fold your arm and tilt your body towards the side which the towel is hung, you end up looking like a person under a spell but it didn’t matter, you are just demanding some respect from the hood…

3. Lumberjack:

Czech is the name of the game, you were not known as a true hommy if you did not represent with a ‘lumber’, I rocked the red and black most!

4. Santos:

Remember that cowboy shoes that had a revolving spikes at the back? Only the dopest big boys had it then and it still get me sprawling each time I catch a glimpse of it, somehow, it’s gone into the oblivion…

5. Bikes:

There was minimum access to rides then so we had to set our sights low…if you had a BMX or a CHOPPER then you were made of gold…you needed this to ‘soil your roots’ to the ladies in tha hood…now if you brandish a bike then you are a whimp…

6. Fezcap and Walkman:

This pair went hand in hand…having a Walkman was a great privilege, topping up ur head with a nice colourful fezcap would have ladies drooling for you… who wears fezcap anymore? And least I forget; Walkman has ‘walked’ man!

7. Cassette :

Everybody have a ‘must have’ cassette at home. Mine was predator, commando, drunken master, terminator, etc… almost all homes had these and yes, you had to brandish right beside the Tv…

8 Satellite Dish:

This was only for the top dawgs, if you got one of these, you are a very rich man’s son…if you had none, then the one proxy would be used as a landmark… some (like me) would even go far as saying ‘ when you get to that house with satellite, ask for me I will come out… before then I would have padied with the house owners sha o…

9) Lyrics magazine:

It was necessary for you to know your lyrics so as to boast about being informed and exposed…you could give a line or two when you notice the opposite sex, it was like a little intro depicting that you are a gee… so you end up buying a lot of lyrics mag. I suffered from ‘hip hop world’ people hand ehn, it took me a long while before i actually know it was not ‘who shat who nat’, we suffered o, now you just simply go online

10) Stories that touches:

It was a trend then to buy story magazines, examples are Hints, hearts, etc…only God knows where they are now, my elder sister’s room was literally their store room…now who get the time? Just login to nairaland or lib you will see a lot of stories

11. Porn Magazine:

It was a must have, you sometimes pop one in your school bag and use it to form a gee for dem gals (at least I know I did that), now people just go online, no time…

12. Comics:

I was a comic book fan, I still have like 50 somewhere in my dad’s house… we loved reading comics then and some how, we spent almost all our savings on them.

13. Love poems:

There was nothing like text messaging so if you meet a gal you like, u write her a poem and slip it into her hands or her bag, u then wait endlessly for reply…it was exhausting especially if the reply came back negative…no be small something o. But now you can whatsapp, txt, etc…

14. Phone:

Phone was a luxury back then and you could count houses that had them, luckily, mine had but was always locked in my dad’s room, when it rang and my friends happen to be in the house, I felt like an oyinbo man living oyinbo life…lol

15. ‘kitting’:

Whatever happened to our kites? This younger generations dey miss o…kite was a favorite sport then, it was like being a pilot temporarily, people prefer browsing now, to kites

“Couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship” – Survey

A new survey has revealed that couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship.

The study from Cotton USA asked couples what they slept in at bedtime and then asked them to rate how happy they were in their relationship.

According to the results, 57 percent of those who slept in the nude said they felt happy, compared to 48 percent of pyjamas wearers, 43 percent of nightie wearers and a mere 38 percent of people who wore pants, bum shorts, etc.

Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe of Cotton USA said that one of the leading factors for this was that the nakedness encouraged intimacy and openness, thanks to the skin-on-skin contact and the feeling of soft bedding.

Guys! Ths is what happens to the pen*s as you get older, according to science

Our bodies change with age, but how about the most private parts? What happens to Pen.!s when it ages? Let’s get some clear answers.

So, guys, what can you expect to happen to your Pen.!s when you grow older? These clues will prepare you for the inevitable changes.

How Pen.!s changes with age?


When most men are born, their Pen.!ses reach only 4 cm in length! The average size ranges between 16 and 23 cm. Does it decrease in size, when you grow old? Not exactly, but things change. For instance, if you gain much weight, your Pen.!s looks shorter. The fat is located in the lower part of your belly and covers up part of the Pen.!s shaft. However, in your 60s or 70s the Pen.!s can actually a bit shrink in size by some 2-3 cm.

Testicle size

After 40 they decrease by 1 third of their size. Healthy younger men have them around 3 cm in size, while the older guys may have only 2 cm size balls.

Working condition

The performance changes, too. When you turn 40, your S3@.x:’ual activity and the amount of male hormones in the body decreases. In the youth a healthy man may have S3@.x:’ several times a day, in the later age erectile dysfunction may change things for worse. The muscles weaken and the vessels get clogged. It also contributes to weaker erection. So, having S3@.x:’ few times a week is great, when you age.



It greatly depends on the sensitivity of your male organ. Unfortunately with age it decreases a bit, but it’s good for those guys, who come too fast. Now they have more chances to gain control and boost the duration of their performance in bed.


You start losing your head hair with the age, but that’s not it. Men also lose their pubic hair and their Pen.!ses change the color a bit.

Time spares no one, so enjoy your S3@.x:’ life in the  young age, but do not worry, over 80 percent of men maintain their male organs in great working condition even being seniors.

Guys beware! It is dangerous to have s*x in these 4 situations

Is S3@.x:’ always good? There are times when you should stay away from it, and every man should know the reasons not to get busy! This list may surprise you.

List of 4 reasons why not to have S3@.x:’:

Besides the obvious thing – not being the husband of the lady you plan to enjoy, there are other reasons to keep away from intimacy. Here they are.

1. At your bachelor’s party


You are a groom and your friends bring in some girls to have fun at your last bachelor’s night out. It’s the worst possible idea to get busy with a stripper or some strange girl. You have picked that woman to be your wife for a reason. Keep it in mind, when other ladies offer fun to you. You do not want to start your married life with cheating. What you sow, you will reap!

2. Alcohol


Either you or she or both of you are drunk. How much is too much? 3 to 5 drinks can make you less wise in your decisions and less cautious. Consuming alcohol, you become more open for risky things, such as unprotected S3@.x:’. And you put yourself and the other person in danger of getting SDTs (HIV and other love bugs) or impregnating the woman.

Such a situation is highly undesirable. So, if you drink too much, make a rule to abstain from S3@.x:’ with a new girlfriend.

3. At her parents’ house


That’s not the best location for the love games. They may return home unexpectedly. Or if they are home, they may enter her room any time and catch you at it. It’s a very embarrassing situation.

4. When you wish to marry her


She is a V!rg!n, and you have made up your mind to marry her. But you want her so and think: what if we do it now? Why wait for the wedding night? Stop! You are going to ruin it all. Waiting does not kill anyone. Just set the date and you won’t regret it. As waiting double the pleasure on the first night!

These reasons should stop you and make you think. S3@.x:’ is not always a good idea, and it can be dangerous and has the power to ruin your life when done at the wrong time and with the wrong person.
