I wonder where all this proverbs dey come from o. E dey surprise me say, our people get this kind talk for mouth.
You rememba dat Papilo advert for Peak ba — It's in You! Na so the thing dey owa body for Naija. Forget, owa people correct die na only bad polithieftians be owa problem.

Pigin: When tilapia borrow money way e no fit pay, na catfish dey pay for the debt.
Chai! I dey tell you oh! Nor be small thing.


Proverb
For pigin: Them say na delay make fowl no fit fly when other birds dey fly.
This one enter brain wella! Every time wey I watch fowl dey do dat denge before e jump na so I go dey wonder wetin dey even fear them.

Pokapoka124, me sight you too bro.

I hail all of una wey dey make dis my corner una own too. One luv, my peeps!

My people, we dey together. E dey give me joy when I dey see say una dey put effort to make sure say, we no comot for our position for this other languages board and that position na for first and second at all times. Una dey try. I get some new naija wisdom talk for una shah. Make una hear as we dey talk am.

Naija wisdom talk (Proverbs):

4 Pigin: No dey for bitter kola tree then, you go dey stretch to pluck pea from pea tree
In English: Don't be on a bitter kola tree and then you stretch to pluck pea from a pea tree
Meaning: Don't jump from a pressing and inconclusive issue to another issue.

4 Pigin: My people say, make you use big man eyes look big man pocket
In English: A saying goes that, you should use a wealthy man's eyes in looking at a wealthy man's pockets
Meaning: When you want to request something from a rich or wealthy person, do so according to his capacity. Don't go asking for peanuts less he or she considers it as an insult.

I dey with una for the struggle. Make una faji.
