5 reasons why most Nigerian men are scared 😱 of waist beads

Studies have shown that the average Nigerian man is scared of waist beads.πŸ˜‚ Well, my studies, to be specific. In a simple research I carried out on social media, cutting across Nigerian men in about 10 states ( Lagos, Oyo, Rivers, Ogun, FCT-Abuja, Osun, Plateau, Ondo, Ekiti, Niger and Nasarrawa), I discovered that about 75 percent of Nigerian men have a phobia for waist beads worn by women.

If I like you, i like you but if I no know your background, you go commot the waist bead before we do anything, better safe than sorry. πŸ˜’ If I no know am like that, I can’t be taking chances. If we have been friends for less than 3 months or 6 and I don’t know your parents, you no dey too go church like that… Ahhh… You go commot am oh.


Waist beads πŸ“Ώ, as the name suggests, are beads worn around the waist. It is believed to have originated from Africa with the purpose of adorning the African woman’s body. This is a fashion accessory that has stood the test of time, in African countries and even beyond. Gradually, some women started using it to keep fit, measure their waistline, and enhance their curves, while others just wore it without any particular reason.

I like it, I mean…o wa soothing to the eyes. If the girl is not fine, if she wears waist beads, I might not see the face again, I will just be looking at the beads. Actually, I love waist beads, not even when a lady is naked; It’s more pleasing when you can only see the line inside the cloth, preferably elastic gowns.


However, majority of Nigerian men are now scared of this fashion accessory and claim there’s more to it. I’ve been able to categorize these fears into five (5):

1. Nollywood

The Nigerian movie industry, yoruba movies especially, have according to some men, played a part in initiating and increasing the fear of waist beads.

The first time I knew about waist beads was in a movie; the ladies used waist beads to enchant men. You know yoruba movies naw. So if a yoruba guy says he doesn’t like waist beads, perhaps that’s where he’s coming from.


Most guys think girls want to use them or steal their destiny. Too much naija film.


2. Religion

Some Nigerian men also believe that religion, Christianity especially, does not allow such practices; they therefore avoid such ladies. A true Christian, according to them, should never πŸ‘Ž wear waist beads; any lady found wearing one would be regarded as fetish or an unbeliever.

I think some believe it’s fetish and are quick to characterise, amongst the spiritual parlance, buh, as a black man, some of us quickly ‘spiritualise’ what we don’t understand.

Falope Gbenga

Most christian guys in Nigeria believe that waist beads have ties to witchcraft, marine spirits, witches, so they try their best to stay away from ladies who wear it.


3. Decency

According to some, a Nigerian lady from an upright home with a moral background should never be found with such accessory. Waist beads, according to them are for prostitutes only. Gbam!

Some Nigerian men think only girls that are not decent wear them e.g olosho (prostitutes)


Personally, I like it. I think it’s the ignorant ones though, they think it’s only sluts that wear them.


4. Diabolic

Diabolic means evil. It is seen as a devilish 😈 or evil fashion item by other Nigerian men.

Personally I find it sexy, others see it as something diabolical and that’s because its not a conventional fashion accessory.


I think for me it’s cause of the suspected spiritual undertone it carries. If I see blue eye beads or you are wearing 9 waist beads at once imma run the other way and yes I count it.


5. Experience

Experience is definitely the best teacher and some Nigerian men are scared based on the previous waist beads experience they had or someone they knew had.

Talking from experience, actually a wealth of experience, most Nigerian ladies are fetish. Ogun po!(Jazz is plenty). Everybody dey use everybody for this life. Girls are using waist beads to steal destiny o. If you know the kind of havoc babes are wrecking in the street , one reason I’m not hoeing around , erunba Mi (I’m scared), laye blue eye, favour oil , kayamata , jaruma , jeu jeu. A proper yoruba man knows that some waist beads are not ordinary.


A guy who likes waist beads can get scared of it based on what his fellow guys who have experienced it tell him about it.


There was this girl I liked in school and wanted to have stuffs to do with but she refused and said if she allows me, I’ll just be doing anything she wants me to do. I wont lie to you, she bought two cars 11 years ago. The way guys use girls for money, girls too deh run package. That’s all I can say.


In conclusion, the remaining 25 percent of Nigerian men like waist beads, on the condition that the kind of waist bead is not too traditional, the stomach carrying the bead is sexy or the woman wearing the waist bead doesn’t flaunt it for other men.

We’d be making love, I’ll now be hearing ‘checkere, checkere, checkere’, wetin deh sup?πŸ˜‚


I personally do not hate waist beads, I just hate seeing it on people who it doesn’t fit. It’s just like you’re mis-using it. There are some kind of waists that normally are irritating, you’d now have waist beads on top.

It fucking turns me onnnnnn😍..But there’s one who made me a bit scared though. She uses the old traditional style. I had to cut it while making out and told her it was a mistake. Then i bought a new one to replace it.


For some boys e just no fit the girls. Based on say their waist no sexy and fat cover the beads.


Well, in my own opinion, it’s not every girl it fits but the lot of them just wear it because they feel it is trendy. Yuck.


I kinda like it in a way sha. The really fashionable ones…. but then I’ll like it only in the house. My partner can wear it but for my eyes only.

  3. Mehn!! That shit scares a lot…some girls are not even meant to wear it cause it doesn’t fit them and it scares a lot especially when the girl is a true Yoruba demonπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


  4. Reading the comments and I’m actually pissed at people who are criticizing those of us that are trying our best to avoid it. Like wtf!? Don’t speak for others, if you don’t use it for jazz don’t say nobody does. These days nobody knows which bead is which… So nothing like fear fear… You don’t know what those “fear fear” as you call them have experienced…

    1. Yeah. I understand. πŸ‘
      People have different perspectives to things.

      Exactly why i said we can’t blame those scared of them too. They’ve seen things. Inside life.


  5. I love them… Makes backlashing more on enticing ( if you know what I mean). But sad thing is I always cut them ” as mistake”. But I don’t get those that use chain, that’s the real juju

  7. Guys are scared of waist beads thinking that they want to jazz them, the fact that you got attracted to the person in the first place they no reason say that one sef na jazz, they all just need to outgrow those thoughts, if they go jazz you they go jazz you….waist beads are just to beautify the waist and check weight gain. I love waist beads
