Yemi Eberechi Alade, a.k.a Yemi Alade a Nigerian Afro-pop singer
Nigerian young and beautiful women go through a lot in the country. One of which is been called a harlot or prostitute at the slightest chance, situation, and provocation. The most annoying part is that this word has been given another awkward name popularly known as “ASEWO”.
Checking the history of the word, it has been discovered that the word is for the Yorubas. “ASEWO” is a Yoruba word which means “One who changes money”. But then, the way the word was changed to an insult is quite amazing and that is Nigeria for you.
There is most likely very few ladies who have escaped being called this name on several occasions. Funny enough these ladies may not have been caught fornicating. The ASEWO name is just an insult on the part of the men to the women. You see a woman doing her own thing and minding her business and suddenly someone would yell this name at her.
Ridiculous Instances Where The Word “ASEWO” is Used on a Lady
CHOICE OF DRESS SENSE
DRIVING AN EXPENSIVE CAR AND OVERTAKING A MAN
Overtaking a man in Nigeria as a lady means war ooh. Most especially when you do that in an expensive vehicle. You definitely would hear that name and more words like ” Because say man don dey see you and fuck you, that is why you dey show yourself”, or ” Asewo you think say nah your papa abi sugar daddy get road abi”. For crying out loud some women work their ass out as some men do. They bought those expensive cars with their money oooh.
LOCATIONS WHERE FOUND
One of the greatest mistake to make in Nigeria as a lady is engage in a fight either in front of a hotel, going in or coming out. The reason is Nigerians have an awful mentality of a hotel and feel that anybody visiting a guess house went for fun (SEX).
SPENDING SO MUCH TIME AT THE ATM
Am sure we all are aware of the construction and state of things with the Nigerian ATMs. They are usually very slow and one is always unable to withdraw more than 20k at once, while some are even 10k. Then the same Nigerians who know this fact, would also be very impatient and expect one to perform magic when you get to the machine. For instance, a lady wants to withdraw 100k imagine how many times she needs to go. And as things are not going as they want it and they lose control they would just yell out.
WALKING IN THE MARKET
MANNER OF SPEECH
The words which come out of your mouth as a lady also matters a lot. Nigerians always expect the women to be very humble and respectful even to the words that come out of their mouth. so if as a lady you violate this order do not be surprised if you meet a greater match. A man who is ready to exchange words with you. And trust me there is no way all insults would come without the prostitute name calling.
OWNING AN EXPENSIVE PHONE
Recalling those times when blackberry and iPhone X was the big deal. Owning it shows and tells that you are very buoyant. But then when ladies get their own and maybe take to their social media page to show excitement, some jealous people would make annoying statements.
GETTING A DRINK AT A BAR
REFUSAL TO GIVE PHONE DIGITS
This is like the most common of all the situations and occasions whereby the name calling is applied. Once a beautiful lady passes by, most mean just get consumed in lust and quickly they want to just get the lady’s digits. And her refusal would turn all the sweet words of likeness, love, Beauty, and affection to nothing and spring up insults of all kinds.
DATING A WHITE MAN
KEEPING SOME HUGE MONEY
Everyone has the freedom to move, to speak and even to dance. Discretion is also advised to be put into consideration to avoid been called different names.
