#NigeriansAtHogwarts Hashtag Is Brilliance and Hilarity You Need

I don die. Seriously. I logged on to Twitter and was told to check out the #NigeriansAtHogwarts hashtag. I have spent the last hour in TEARS laughing at the shenanigans.

I am a PROUD Potterhead and super fan of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series and I am unashamed of my dorkiness in making references to the books. Add that to the fact that us Nigerians are a special breed of awesome. The #NigeriansAtHogwarts hashtag is EVERYTHING, throwing inside jokes, cultural stereotypes and our unfuggwitable humor into a giant bowl. Add to the fact that Naijas are generally superstitious and these jokes are priceless and the brilliance is clear. The hashtag was started by @WalleLawal so shoutout for kicking off the best hashtag in a while.


I threw some of my faves into Storify, because this is the kind of hashtag I’ll need to read over and over again. NAIJA TWITTER FOR THE WIN! This hashtag was trending at one point.

This is the best and I love us.
