Firstly, you have the lindaikeji type blogs, who are well versed in predicting shit even before shit happens. If you meet Linda for instance and she tells you that you might be pregnant, you better take her seriously cause you might be having triplets! The news breaks on these sites first…but they are not always detailed and often times some of the news have to be retracted or corrected…but that’s why we like them.
Then you have bellanaija type blogs, they know shit has happened, but won’t say shit has happened until they confirm where exactly it happened, when exactly it happened and who exactly it happened to. When they report their shit, it is normally detailed shit and they are normally accurate.
Thirdly, you have the ynaija.com type sites, they are the politicization factories of Nigeria. They have oped writers for everyday of the week (really they do) that try to spin the political angle of shit. So when shit happens, they will probably have an oped titled “How The Shit That Happened Affects the price of Garri and Pure Water in Nigeria.” They report shit late but are able to relate the shit to the Economy and to you.
Lastly, you have my favorite…the old school newspaper prints. They confirm shit has happened days weeks after shit has been confirmed to have happened. They are fast becoming extinct sources of shit happening news and are slowly transitioning to electronic websites. But for the most part are still a relevant source of shit happening news for those without computers.
And there you have it…the 4 distinct things that happen when shit happens in Nigeria…feel free to agree or disagree and remember…make your own shit happen…
