13 Kinds Of People You’ll Find On Nigerian Snapchat

May 2, 2016
DJ Khaled’s keys to success made a lot of people join Snapchat, However, the brains behind the app have blessed the world with more awesome filters and Nigerians couldn’t be more pleased. Here are 13 types of Nigerians you’ll recognise on the Snapchat app:

1. The black girl magic filter people

These ones want to sha glo up by force. They have stopped using any other filter since they discovered the glory of this flower crown filter that makes everybody look extremely gorgeous.

2. The people that won’t let us hear word with this dog filter

Almost every Nigerian on Snapchat has used this filter. No need to be ashamed, we have all tried to look cute with this filter and stick out our tongues shamelessly.

3. The Amebo people

They’re always the ones with all the receipts. They never post anything but are always the first to view everybody’s snaps and take screenshots.

4. The cool kid

These ones don’t have anybody’s time, they just post their snaps and leave. They don’t care about other people’s snaps so far everybody else is viewing theirs.

5. The money bag

These ones like to pose with money and tell us how their money grows like grass. Even if the money is not their own, they’re sha doing it for Snapchat.

6. The video vixen

These ones just record themselves trying to be sexy in front of the camera while music is playing in the background. Nobody knows what they want to achieve with that sha.

7. The foodie

These ones sha want everyone to know they eat only fine and assorted food. They like to tension people with what’s on their plate and how well they can cook.

8. The attention whore

These ones just post the most ridiculous things for attention. They’re the reason why you don’t open your Snapchat in public because their nudes can just pop on your feed at any time.

9. The commentator

They do the biggest oversabi and would comment on anything and everything in this life. They always have something to say about other people’s snaps.

10. The ones that love to DM

These ones send DMs of their pictures to everyone on their Snapchat feed. Maybe they’re trying to seize the bae at all costs sha.

11. The reality TV wannabe

You could list the names of everybody in their families, the date their bae broke up with them and their underwear sizes through their snaps.

12. The turn up kings/queens

These ones are just there to make you tired of your really boring life. They’re always turning up at  Owambes every Saturday and lit events every other day of the week.

13. The driver

If you can’t drive or own a car, these ones are there to make you feel bad about your keke Marwa and Danfo life. How they manage to Snapchat and drive “safe” is still a mystery.
