  3. Hmm wonderful memories they were. This is where the older friends tell lie lie tales that will make one too scared to sleep. My older friend once told us on a night like this that her science teacher said the world will end the following week. She even drew the instrument that will end the world on a paper for us to see. She was in JSS 1 then while we were in primary school. Omo see confession that night, we begged God crying seriously to please add extra days. We were so naive kai. After that week passed and the world did not end, we went to ask her o, that was when she laughed and told us it was just cruise. And to think that we all put up our best behaviors that whole week 🤦‍♀️. Fatima na God go judge you

  10. Yes o,days of little or no competition, we trek long distance without hassle, days where everybody knows the child of whom you are up to the 4the street,not like Noe when we barely know our next door neighbors.days where couples sit and gist,not pressing phone.days when 5 naira food can fill your tommy, evening story,no generator noise, technology is good but it came with a lot of disadvantages and advantage

  11. I do,those days were the best.We used to gather as early as anything,lol and would sometimes remain outside there just gisting, laughing, making fun,discussing everything that was going on, playing all sorts of games and sometimes we fought but always reconciled.We would remain outside until we were being called. At other times,we roamed the whole area.
    Technology self........hmm.
    Adulthood oooooo,but growth is good, nevertheless.
    Life can be so sweet in its innocence.

  12. Times when neighbors are seen and treated with love and not tagged as witches. When girl child can be left with an uncle for days without being molested. When doors and windows are kept open at night without fear of robbery. When people look forward to a journey without fear of kidnapping. Good old days

  13. I remember days of Alo oh, Alo.

    In our face me I slap u then, from time to time, at night, before we all go to bed, practically all families will gather at the back of the house and then one parent, almost always iya Jumoke and occasionally iya Funmi or Baba Funmi will start telling us tales by moonlight.

    I actually have goosebumps remembering this ☹️

    1. Mehn, same here. I have goosebumps

      It was always my dad for us. That man tell us Alo oh, Alo tire and different different stories. Our uncle also tried, may God continue to rest his soul. Then I and my siblings were very very close with all our cousins ehn, to the extent that we all must attend the same school even though our parents built different houses but same area. We stayed in ours more because of my dad's Alo and stories plus he is the senior man. Good old days that there were no or little worries. Those cousins now it has turned to when you see me I see you, o ga oo.

  14. 😂😂can't relate.
    But I remember being in jss3 when mobile phone started reigning and two of my classmates had phones and brought it to class, we always looked at them with jealousy.....lol
    I can only remember waiting on nepa to bring the light so we can watch our favorite soap operas on nta or ait or silver bird, gossiping with neighbours and listening to radio, radio with rechargeable lamp was the main thing for big babes and boys, my elder siblings in boarding house had theirs and brought them home on holiday and we listened to radio shows into the night, had some classmates call in or send in message to their secret lovers and we that didn't have boyfriend always laughed at them in class...lol we gossiped a lot 🤣🤣🤣

  23. Oh good old days! We would gather outside at night after dinner and listen to stories. On some nights if it rained earlier we will go pick snails or catch edible termites. We would put water in bowls and catch the termites and put them in the water. Then fry them without oil. I can't eat that again sha. Now our kids are not allowed to step outside especially at night. The days are evil.
