Childhood ‘Messing’ Games Nigerian Kids Used to Play


By Kikelomo Onigbanjo

Childhood was fun wasn’t it? We had no worries and we thought we could conquer the world. I mean we had energy, we had fire! All we had to do then was to wake up, go to school, eat and play. Oh! We had several games then. We were never bored. Y’all remember that messing game we used to play? This is to take us down memory lane on how it was played. This is strictly for the ‘Ajepako’ kids. ‘The coolest kids on the block’. Loool. So if you were an ‘Ajebo’ kid, you may not fully understand what these mean.
