In no particular order, these are the most-used excuses Nigerian men give for cheating:
1. It was the devil
Ah, the all-time classic. Just blame it on the devil all the time.
But hey, just hold it right there, sir. It was no devil, it was you all by yourself. You planned it, executed it and got the pleasure all by yourself. No one gets blamed more than the devil when people cheat on their partners [Credit: Bona]
2. I don’t know what came over me
I’ll tell you for free what came over you. Selfishness and inconsideration, that’s what.
3. I did not mean to hurt you
If you didn’t you would not have planned and executed it the first time, second time, third and other numerous times, with more than one girl. Sit down, bruh, you meant to hurt her every single time.
4. It was a one time thing
Of course you don’t expect anyone to confess to being a serial cheater.
5. You’re the real one
Another classic one men like to drop is about how other girls are just to bide time and how you are the real one, the only one…It’s probably just another one of the numerous lies and excuses but as always you’re probably going to fall for it again.
