The tweet that got everyone talking on Twitter started from our very own Kaduna based Social Media influencer/ digital marketer Jaeflex ( @Real_jaeflex)
The format involves a person hiding under the bed from an armed robber. The robber says something that the person can’t help but respond to.
The meme started in late August, with this tweet by @Real_jeaflex;
“Me* hiding under the bed*
Armed Robber: Brown Skin Girl
Me: YOUR SKIN JUST LIKE PEARLLLLLLLL!!!”
The tweet now has over 20,000 likes and 8,000 Retweets
Quite a lot of the ones that came next also feature song lyrics, often from songs with particular resonance for age or cultural groups.
The tweet trended in Nigeria, America and other countries
