Throwback Thursday: A Walk Into The 90’s In Nigeria (Pics and Events)

Ever wondered what it will feel like to still be in the 90’s? the same familiar easy life where all there were was watching movies like Matrix, Titanic, Terminator, Indian movies like Toofan, and sitcoms like Papa Ajasco, This life series, Paloma and Diego, amongst countless others… grooving to jams like TLC No-Scrubs. And we were also privileged to know the iconic moments Between 1990 and 1994, when Nigeria won silver, bronze and gold medals in the biannual Africa Cup of Nations competition, or when Nigerian football bounced back to global reckoning in Atlanta 1996 Olympics, the country’s football team won the gold medal, thus becoming the first African country to achieve that feat earning us the name “Giant of Africa”.

The 90’s had a blend of technology and physical interaction/relationships. A mixture so rare in this age and time with lots of nudity and ratchet artists in music videos, movies, Ads., in contrast to good old days of {Baby’s day out, Everyday people, Destiny child, Home alone, Dr do little, Kids Say The Darnest Things, Usher, Boys II men, Michael jackson (*Whispers*He was every girl’s dream) Mark Morrison, Edris Abdulkareem, Daddy Showkey, Dando Drivers and so on}

Food & Pastime:
Choko milo was much more thicker and chocolaty with yummy deliciousness to booth (Yeah you read that right), Sardine was 4 in each holder (Gasp) Donkua (An Hausa snack) has a place on this list too, condensed ice cream, and the smallest satchet of cowbell was sold for 5naira.

So much to reminisce on ranging from building sandcastles with legs and Playing the best brain tasking guess game (Animal, person, place or things) to playing Mario and Nintendo. And these books amongst many made our childhood complete:

Everything seemed so simple, cheaper and easier that i had 80 naira to school everyday for a year or more, the money would buy scotch egg, small pie, a copy of superstrikas and yoghurt. Looking forward to valentine was one of the best times of a being a teenage girl as it was sure cards or gifts would pour in from boys who couldnt walk up the nerve to talk to you.
Image result for supa strikas
The 90’s herald the dawn of technology age in Nigeria and numerous Cyber Cafes were in business making lots of money off people who had no clue what they were doing in yahoo chat rooms. Upside, it connected us to the people from all over the world. Downsides, most lost their innocence to the likes of online porn, fraudulent behaviors that stemmed from the belief that they were “entitled” to earn what their ancestors had slaved for from the white people.

Image result for 90s computerThere are positive outcome of cyber influence like wider and easier range of knowledge, opinions, not just the ones taught in classrooms, but facts cannot be ignored that it is easy to see why below 13-yr-olds and above can’t be children because of easy access to the unsanctioned aspects of the internet, talking back to elderly people and mimicking all they see on the net. Take away the ipods, subscribtions, and see depression shoot up…
Politics & Economy:
Let’s not forget that the 90’s was also a crucial, tear filled period for the Nigerian politics, dating from the not so revered Abacha regime to his time of death, MKO Abiola’s election win and death, Cliford Orji, IBB, the common predominant school strikes, NEPA (PHCN) strikes, NLC protests, Ken Saro Wiwa, petrol price deflations and inflations. And i remember the elders would complain of how things were ridiculously expensive back then because a cup of rice was fluctuating between 20 and 25 Naira.
Image result for mko abiola
On a final note, it was a bit difficult to transition to the jet age but it was worth it, and most of us wouldn’t want to still be in the 90’s knowing what we know now, but then let us know if you’d rather we still be in the easy melancholy 90s. Remember to stay positive in a world that is reeling so fast, don’t have the notion that you cant be a role model to the upcoming young ones because you are not done growing. Remember, kids these days absorbs things fast and they will remember who impacted what on them.
