Here is to being Nigerian and our Awesome Relationship with Cable TV

We love to admit; being Nigerian is beautiful. It’s funny how Nigerians know that one house we all use to know if there is power. Where else would you receive a phone call like “guy abeg light dey house?” and when the answer is negative, a classic Naija follow up question comes; “When dem take the light?” like we can use the almighty formula to know when power will be back. Let’s be frank, our experiences fill up endless pages.

You see, we know how to unwind. Wonder why there’s traffic on Saturdays? Ah, we love to turn up and when we can’t, the ‘spoil yourself crazy’ option is always open. With a remote in one hand, food in the other and your eyes fixed on the TV, magic is bound to happen.

TV is serious matter in a typical Nigerian home; so serious that back then as kids, you could get sent to bed if you disturb daddy’s ‘Network News.’ These days, kids seize the remote for cartoon, the ladies send you to your phones over Telemundo and Africa Magic and when the boys get a chance, say hello to SuperSport especially when stakes have been made *winks* and here is a special shout out to all our new Leicester City Fans.

So, it’s on those days when you’ve got the remote that your club decides to start losing (say God) and you just want to get inside the TV and play it yourself.

Sometimes, it’s not the tension from the heartbreak; PHCN might just decide to do what they love, Cable TV might just take forever to load (some say you can boil a pot of beans while waiting) or worse still, your cable subscription is out and your heart is in your mouth. It’s at these times that quickteller.com comes to the rescue.

This Video says it all, you really should see it.
