I know I do not frequent these parts of the internet as I used to. Nonetheless, this video (and the ones that follow) demands a mention as they very deftly portray contemporary Nigerian life.

The creators of this content @nnamdiarea and @ourownarea manage to serve some bitter pills but with an abundance of comedy. As the main character sang in the 1964 Mary Poppins film "Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down" so also has the @ourownarea team successfully helped myself and probably others digest certain Nigerian realities. Although these videos are at least a year old, they deserve a good watching.
