15 things we all heard our dads say while growing up

1. Nigerian fathers and “When I was your age”.

“I used to carry first even without writing exams.”


2. “This woman come and see your son!”  for when you do something borderline wrong or foolish.



“He got this rubbish behaviour from you.”


3. But when you come first at anything, he’ll be like “That’s my boy!”

Caleon You this boy

“He took after his father!”


4. What is a Nigerian father if he hasn’t yelled “Gimme the remote”, then changed stations to the network news, and promptly slept off?

Because if it ain’t on a News channel, you’re doing it wrong.


5. “What do you know they use money for?”

Yes sir. Just like I was on my own when you and mummy plucked me from heaven.


7. ”Where do you think you’re going?”

I was going out, but my room now looks like the safe place to go.


8. “You think it’s me you’re doing?”

Does that mean you never have to say “You’ve disgraced me” anymore?


9. When you try to argue with them or disagree on something.
