We Nigerians love food!
Think about it. When we’re at a wedding and the food is served late, we become angry, hissing and wondering if the couple didn’t realize that we hadn’t eaten that day.
Or when a female child is told that the only way to a Nigerian man’s heart is food, so they need to know how to cook!
This food business is serious!
How about Mrs. Wife who says that she won’t cook for Mr. Husband anymore because she is a feminist…errm, what? Please, I beg you, cook the food. Are you not going to eat as well? Hunger is a human issue, feminism is a whole other issue.
As for you, Mr. Husband, if your wife is running late from work, please go to the kitchen, boil some water and make some Eba. And warm up some soup. Eat your food. Do that, instead of sitting in the parlor, waiting for your wife to come home, shaking one leg and breathing heavily from anger and hunger.
Neighbours passing would think your generator is switched on indoors, not knowing that the loud sound coming from your house and scaring children outside is just your tummy rumbling.
It’s just food. Seriously. Some people don’t have food to eat.
