Kids these days would never understand the struggle of sending an SMS with any of these “dumb phones”. You better believe it that before you type “S”, you have to hit that “7” button four times

2) We hung those annoying phones on our trouser(s)

Still on those “dumb phones” matter. We used to carry them along in their ugly looking pouches hung on our trouser. Many people didn’t do this for the safety of their phones or for fashion, they did it to show off their phones.

To show people that they owned a phone

3) Listening to Westlife and Backstreet Boys

These guys were very popular in Nigeria back in the days. As a lady, if your boyfriend did not send you love letters laden with lyrics from their songs, you were a side piece.

The worst part of listening to their music is when the LOYL finally broke up with you. Try listening to Westlife and backstreet boys again, then compare the feelings to back in the days. I’m sure you would feel WEIRD

4) Guys wearing electronic belts
