Nigerian mothers and weddings are mutually exclusive.
All jokes but you understand what we mean. Nigerian mothers love weddings. Well, a lot of them. And there are some things we know they do at weddings. Here are a few tweets every Nigerian will understand perfectly!
1. This one about going to other weddings
“Who will buy aso-ebi when it’s her turn?”
When you ask a Nigerian mum why she went to the wedding of her friend's daughter,she'll say 'so that she can also come to my son's wedding'.

2. This one that is so true
“If not Temi decided to do her own when her mates were doing hers, will I not be carrying my grand kids now?”
Nigerian mum's & snide wedding remarks.

3. This one about money for aso-ebi
“Because see. Nigerian mums know who bought aso-ebi and who didn’t buy and they’re waiting for your own turn”
4. This one about small weddings
“But you know it’s not possible. Because the entire class of Queen’s College ’75 have to turn up”
My kinda wedding.
No crowd, nothing nothing.
But I have a Nigerian mum so it probably won't happen.
