Check out these Meaningful and Hilarious Proverbs in Nigerian Pidgin.

Nigerian Pidgin is an English-based pidgin and Creole (a language that is based on French and uses words from African Languages). It is spoken as a Lingua Franca within Nigeria.The language is sometimes referred to as Broken or "Pijin".

So I decided to take a break from the relationship talks and I thought of proverbs in Pidgin. Cool right?
