Making The Most Of April 1st: Prank Your Nigerian Mother



You’ve been hitching for a fun ride? Your life feels boring as of late and you need to add some vibrance? Isn’t today just perfect for that occasion? The very golden opportunity to muse yourself (and us) because why not?


According to Wikipedia, April Fools’ Day or April Fool’s Day is an annual custom on 1 April consisting of practical jokes and hoaxes. Jokesters often expose their actions by shouting “April Fools!” at the recipient. Mass media can be involved in these pranks, which may be revealed as such the following day.


Who else is the best person to prank when everyone around you knows about today? It’s all about the risky texts, calls and you can be bold enough to do one physically.

1. Up And Coming Father


Tell her you’ve impregnated someone because you’re an adult. You had it planned because you can and proved yourself as the true son of your father. I don’t know how you’re going to get proofs for this one but do it. Do it today!

2. Up And Coming Mother


You already get bumps after eating (chill, we all do) so take advantage of them or of someone else’s. Take a nice shot and exercise your mobiography skills. You’re going to be a mother just like your mother, surprise her.


3. Bad B!tch Moves


Tell her you just had an abortion and it was a smooth ride (don’t actually harm a baby, ever). The excitement in my head is all about how your mom is going to get all spiritual with you. Do it anyway.

4. TV Troubles


Manipulate your TV today. Show your mom that you’re a tech sis/tech bro and mess with the settings. Increase or reduce the brightness, toy with the contrast, zoom in or make the perspective tiny. Ensure you take a video of this process or at least pictures so you can return the TV back to normal after your shenanigans, tech bro isonu.


5. Mess With Her Candy Crush


My mom and your mom have at least 5 of these games on their phones and I’ll look at the positive side that these games actually task their brains. Delete the apps completely and reinstall them or just delete them. If you want to survive after this prank, save their progress online. But if you’ve chosen to leave earth, do whatever you want nobody fit hold you.


6. Battery Bandit


Time for 6pm news? A show on Zee World? Africa Magic Yoruba is showing Odunlade? Steal the batteries. Render the remote useless either with an old battery that works no more or just remove the batteries totally.

7. P0rn Star Moves


Don’t expect me to mention the names of your favorites. Just talk to your mother about your role model in the industry.  Spice it up a notch and show her clips of your favourites in action so she can understand the requirements of your newly found passion.

8. Gender Switch


James Brown? Bob about to be risky? Who are you not to hop on this ride to make money in UAR? Tell your mother that you’re ready to become the other gender and your current gender isn’t satisfactory enough. Give her reasons to question her ancestors and ask why they’ve forsaken her.


9. Religious Awakening


Everyday things happen in Nigeria and you wonder how you can survive this country unscathed (as per you’re one of the sensible ones planning to japa). Tell your mom you’ve decided to switch your religion because the one you already practise isn’t feeling like it’s your call. How to switch this up? Send her pictures of you either at the location of worship or with anything acquainted to the “new” religion.


10. Unexpected Wedding Guest


You know most of our mothers are the lives of every party? The ginger and spice to every owanbe yet you planned one without your mother? And the date is tomorrow? Send your mom that wedding invitation today.


11. Toy With Her Phone


Most of our mothers are not tech savvy so use this to your advantage. Take a screenshot of her home screen and use it as her wallpaper after removing all the apps there. Let her think her phone is broken because you’re a child of the world so act it.


How bad can it be to get disowned? Does slippers hurt? Your paternal relatives will not be happy about this because their ears with itch all day.
