The story behind the Naija4life BBM Sticker characters
After discovering and posting about the Naija Sticker pack on Techsuplex, the creators of the sticker pack reached out to talk a bit more about the packs themselves, to make them even more awesome. So here is the story behind each of the characters on:
He is the primary character. In his mid forties; a happy go lucky fellow who who is single and likes a good time. He makes giant promises and rarely keeps them. A big spender who is constantly selling himself and others pipe dreams.
Chairman’s sidekick. Bob Scatter is in his early thirties and is currently unemployed. He is absolutely loyal to his friend. Loves football and partying. A man about town and almost always in a good mood.
Chairman’s long suffering girlfriend and features sparingly in the pack. A proper city girl, she has an on-and-off relationship with Chairman and believes that eventually he will “make an honest woman” of her.
The sticker pack captures the emotions and expressions that are familiar to every Nigerian, delivered in Pidgin English arguably the most widely spoken language in Nigeria.
In case unlike me, you haven’t had the chance to see the sticker pack, here are all the expressions available in the pack. It’s the first item I have purchased on the BBM shop and I hope they do make more down the line.
