9 Nigerian Women Share Their Weirdest Turn-off

May 20, 2021

There are some things people do that automatically turn us off. The problem is that when explaining these things to people, they come off as weird or ridiculous. These nine Nigerian women share with us their weirdest turn-off and some things that just give them an ick.

Ada

If I see a good looking man and his shoes are dirty, I immediately lose all sense of attraction I had towards him. Why will you as a grown man have dirty shoes? It really gets me irritated.

Bisi

Light skinned men are usually a turn-off for me. There’s something about their features that makes them seem like children. When I see a light-skinned man, I see a child that needs to be babied and taken care of, and I am not attracted to children. Although there are a few exceptions, light-skinned men, in general, are a huge turn-off.

Bose

People dragging their feet is such a turn-off. The sound is extremely irritating and it grinds my gears. It gives me a certain ick I cannot explain. Why can’t they just walk normally?

Clara

Chest hair, guys who spit, have long nails, call me baby unprovoked and are rude to waiters. Why will a grown man just be spitting in public? When you are not a pregnant woman in a 2003 Nollywood movie.

Princess

I don’t like when people lick my ear. Why? It’s dirty and it tastes bitter, what are you looking for there?

Bolanle

no explanation needed

Odion

Men that are “one of the boys”. If a guy is constantly shouting “gang, gang” and “slime”, it’s a big red flag and a huge turn-off.

Hafizat

Men doing too much in the name of dancing is a huge turn-off. Nobody wants to see all of that Chris Brown dancing. Also, when men tell me they wish I was shorter. I’m tall. Get over it.

Bimpe

SoundCloud rappers turn me off. Especially because most of them listen to artistes like Kendrick Lamar, Jcole, Chris Brown, Brymo etc. Once Ithey send me a playlist with any of those artistes or their counterparts, I’m immediately turned off.
