Hobbies

Most times your hobbies reflect your inner person, features your interests and most times helps you relax.

Have you noticed that the hobbies section of most resumes feature the same interests, for official reasons we believe, most people only use things that makes them look serious. The hobbies mostly used in resumes includes Reading, writing, playing chess, travelling.

Although the most obvious generic hobbies in recent times has been linked with technology, it mostly has to do with surfing the internet and use social apps like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Periscope, Snapchat can now be described as hobbies.

Listed below are the weirdest hobbies in Nigeria

1. Tweeting

We asked someone what he does when he is not working and he said, “When I am not working, or sleeping, I am tweeting and following twitter trends.”

The micro-blogging platform has served as a hall of hilarious happenings. From twitter gods to the random guy on twitter, everyone gets fired!

So yes, that can stand as a hobby too!

2. Watching porn

In 2014, Nigeria was listed among the top 10 countries that visit pornography websites. This is weird because, in Nigeria, most people never admit to watching porn.

With a statistic like that Remember never to randomly enter people’s room as you can never be too sure of what going on inside.

3. Making faces for the gram

Most women are guilty of this, once boredom sets in, the go to place to tell the world you are bored is either Instagram, snapchat or periscope.

It goes like this, “Hi Snapchat, so I am home today, and I am so bored, do you like my lip colour?”

4. Twerking

When they are not pouting for the gram, they are twerking for the gram. This kind of hobby serves two ways as it also amuses the audience.

In as much as logging in to find someone wiggling her ass on your timeline can be annoying and weird, it is someone’s favourite hobby.

5. Window shopping

You identify a Nigerian; if he/she enters a clothing or jewellery store try their items, reduce prices to the barest minimum and ends up not buying anything from that store.

This is common among university students, I met a couple of people who told me, they window shop to while away time, so as not to be bored.

6. Attending free events

Most people literally have a calendar of free events happening every weekend, you call go to an art exhibition you find almost the same set of people you met at the fashion fair.

Nigerians are the life of any party. You simply cannot tag a party as free and they would not show up.

7. Stalking people on the internet

The amazing thing about some social media apps is that you can snoop without getting caught. You can check people’s profile without leaving your footprints all over the place.

Everyone is guilty of this; this mostly happens during moments that you would rather be with your phone [probably your best friend] than involve yourself in other activities.

8. Watching series and Telemundo

Recent data shows that Zee World is the most watched station on DSTv. This is weird because some of the series aired on this station are not blockbusters. How people stay glued might forever be a mystery.

Oh well, if it relaxes you, it is an hobby.

9. Taking selfies

Most Nigerian women could be tagged a narcissist. Task yourself take about 10 random women phone, go to the mobile gallery, you will be surprised that the first five photos would be selfies.

Never bet on that!

10. Nigerian jollof rice

This has to be the weirdest of them all, these days just a single jollof rice comment can trigger a tweet war in Africa’s most populous nation.

No one has survived saying anything negative about the Nigerian jollof rice. Countries like Ghana and Liberia have triggered the Nigerian jollof battle on twitter severally but the Nigerian jollof soldiers are always prepared.

11. Sleeping

Weird as it sounds it can be categorised as a hobby, it is one of the perfect things that can be done when boredom strikes, and it also can serve as a perfect excuse for not texting someone back.

Although, the list of how this weird hobby is awesome is long, it takes your mind off struggles and it is the perfect cure for a bad mood.
