AI Trends: Real Warri Pikin called for an end to the trend of using AI on social media to create content. She emphasized concerns about its misuse and overuse, particularly in Nigeria.
Japa Content: The comedian discouraged Nigerians who travel abroad, especially as dependents, from immediately creating content about their life abroad, urging them to calm down.
Money Changers at Weddings: She criticized people who change money at weddings, stating that their charges for selling money can be excessively expensive, calling for a halt to such practices.
Broke Shamers: Real Warri Pikin slammed women who engage in “broke shaming” men, asserting that it’s not a crime for someone to be broke, and the practice needs to stop in the coming year.
Bad Characters Using Mental Health as Cover: She called out individuals with bad characters who use mental health and depression as excuses, stressing the need to work on improving behavior instead of hiding behind mental health.
Ungratefulness: Real Warri Pikin expressed frustration with people who remain ungrateful even after receiving money, urging them to change their nonchalant attitude.
Event Securities and Bouncers Begging for Money: The comedian highlighted the embarrassment caused by event security and bouncers following attendees to beg for tips or money, urging them to stop this behavior in the new year.
Partners with Blurred Faces on Social Media: She criticized individuals who post their partners on social media but blur their faces or hide parts of them, insisting that if you share your partner online, do it with confidence and in full.
Abuja Men Wearing Kaftan: Real Warri Pikin humorously pleaded with Abuja men who frequently wear Kaftan outfits to explore other types of clothing and give their Kaftans a break, suggesting they let other outfits shine.
With conviction, she encouraged everyone to let go of these negative attitudes and behaviors, emphasizing the importance of abandoning them as they enter into the fresh start of the new year.
