  1. LMAO at “Sleep has jammed me. Wish it had been you”

    But it wasn’t his fault now. Should he suffer for what was beyond him?

  2. Heheheeee! This sounds so familiar! NW sweetie, don’t be vexing you hear? Try and bear with him. NH, I trust you to make it up to her always, preferably those 5 servings in one session. Halleluyah!

  3. Things Naija Husband Says and Naija Wife’s notes all in one post lol. I feel like we just got a discount today.

    Slain @ the note tho. Too funny.

  4. Sometimes ladies have to also understand that the men don’t go to work to drink coffee and cross their legs… Well except they work in advertising agencies.

    Thanks for sharing

  5. This is what Valentines Day looked like (and will now almost always certainly look like) for me…

    Berry: Hey you…
    Cakes: Babe, I’ll see you later (assuming he didn’t spend the night baking and decorating)

    10/11pm is probably when we’ll start our own V-Day celebration. OR, he’ll be too tired, and February 15th will become V-Day for us!

    PS – You guys take waaaaaaaaay too long between posts. Can I suggest topics?

    E.g. DATE NIGHT or DAY!!! What do NH and NW get up to for their dates? Weekly? Biweekly? Monthly? I’m almost sure it’s every other day if you leave it up to NW :p

  6. “Couples don’t get it right all the time.”

    Thank you. For that truth. Too many couples pretending to be perfect.

  7. great post. keep up with the transparency. Ditto what @berry said, can we suggest posts? Guess it will depend on your experience with the topic

  8. I’m wondering who you think didn’t get it right, was it NH or NW? Being jammed at work happens so why would naija wife be angry?

  9. Totally relatable.Only difference is that I wait up feeling sorry for him most of the time.

  10. Naija Husband!!!! I am a new fan and I have read all the posts already..please please please try and post more often?? Of course I understand that you are a busy man but it would be greatttt. NW is hilariousssss, pele oo

  11. “Sleep has jammed me…” Hahaha this is absolutely fantastic! Of course, it’s only cute when husband and wife love each other very much (like you two), otherwise it becomes annoying and in my case, I totally ignore all sticky notes in the house! Lovely 😀

  12. Loooooooooooool @ “Sleep has jammed me”. I can soo see myself doing that. I always use people’s words back at them especially when I’m vexed. Y’all are too cute!

  13. LOOOOOOOLLLL, I bet you can un-jam her with one or two pieces from If that does not un-jam her, Naija Husband, O.Y.O is your case!

  14. I don die ooo… too funny!
    This is pure comedy, definitely useful for a television program!
