My boyfriend recently showed me this video (he lives for any opportunity to laugh at Nigerians, he’s Zimbabwean and does it out love and admiration because he seriously wishes he was Nigerian) and had to join in the laughter.

Proceeded to share it with my siblings only to be informed that this video is ‘old’. Why they never thought to share it with me, I have no idea (took me a while to forgive them).

This interview is wonderfully hilarious and is just why I love Nigerians and being Nigerian. We’re so fabulously extra.

Couldn’t have said it better myself, “African people, we are born great!”

"I Hate Valentine’s Day" by Anton Taylor.

In this hilarious kinda-sorta-anti-Valentine’s Day video, South Africa funnyman and entrepreneur Anton Taylor is the Grinch of this lover’s holiday.

(And, I suspect, WeChat had something to do with this).

An animal described as an African lion at a Chinese zoo was exposed as a fraud - when the creature started barking in front of visitors.
Chinese media reports said the zoo had replaced its genuine lion with a Tibetan mastiff dog.
A zoo official in Henan province said the dog - owned by one of the workers - was put in the cage when the real lion was sent away to a breeding centre.
Outraged visitors to the zoo in Louhe city said they had been cheated.
According to a report in the Beijing Youth Daily, the fraud came to light when a mother visited the zoo, in a park in the city of Louhe, to show her son the sounds different animals made.
But when they got to the cage marked “African lion” - which had a sign describing the range and characteristics of the animal - they were shocked to hear the creature bark.
It was then that zoo keepers revealed the so-called lion was actually a Tibetan mastiff, an animal that can have a furry brown coat, making it look a little like a lion.
The woman visitor, surnamed Liu, was quoted as saying: “The zoo is absolutely trying to cheat us. They are trying to disguise dogs as lions.”
The chief of the park’s animal department, Liu Suya, was quoted by the Beijing Youth Daily as saying the lion had been taken to a breeding facility and the Tibetan mastiff temporarily placed in its cage because of safety concerns.
Other species were also apparently mislabelled; there was a white fox in a leopard’s den and another dog being passed off as a wolf.
I really, really want to go to this zoo. Sounds like a trip and a half. I am laughing so hard at this.

The jingle for PSI’s condom brand Jeito can be heard in pretty much every advertisement for the brand. In this video several local Mozambican people were asked to perform the jingle themselves.

Haha, this just made my day.

Kenyans Respond to Jimmy Kimmel Celebrity Tweets by turning the tables on his recent stint, with hilarious results.

Kimmel’s segment on Kenyans reading celebrity tweets was done in really poor taste (he says the words ‘charity’ and ‘they don’t have twitter’, oh please), and although all the Kenyans read the tweets flawlessly, the same can’t be said for those in Las Vegas reading the tweets in Swahili.

Turns out white people did not invent humour, after all.

President Obama features in his first Nollywood film as Yoruba juju priest ‘Ija Oba’.

Disappointed that this is a fake photoshopped poster, see the real poster here.

THIS IS AMAZING: D’Banj vs The Real Oliver Twist

You know it had to be done, so here it is. A mash-up video that combines Nigerian Kokomaster D’Banj’s hit song ‘Oliver Twist’ with footage from the 1948 film of the same name.
