Nigerian Joke: Time For A Good Laugh

Funny Naija jokes are one of the outstanding features our countrymates are known for. Anecdotes, raillery, funny Nigerian quotes, playful conversation – these are things we just can’t give up. Life can be difficult, but a sense of humour always makes it easier.

Some of the best Nigerian jokes, however, are difficult to understand for outsiders. They take roots in our traditions and customs; they mock or expose something local; they are created by people with the specific mentality, and only people that share the same mindset find them hilarious.

April 1 is coming, so we decided to prepare in advance. If you don’t plan any practical jokes, you can entertain people with some funny stuff. Or you can do both. Anyway, here are some funny Nigerian jokes that will make you smile. Enjoy!
