With every new day comes a new set of trending lists on Nigerian Twitter.

Today, the topic on everybody’s lips and yes, the number 1 trend in the country at the moment is Charlie Charlie. Everybody is talking about it.

So before we go into the conversations and what people are saying? Let’s first talk about exactly what Charlie Charlie is.

According to Wikipedia, the Charlie Charlie challenge is a modern incarnation of the Spanish paper-and-pencil game called Juego de la Lapicera (Pencil Game). Like a Magic 8-Ball, the game is played by teenagers using held or balanced pencils to produce answers to questions they ask.

Quite simply, the game is played by stacking two pencils, one above the other on a 2x2 grid of Yeses and Nos. Players then ask questions to Charlie who moves the pencil to either a yes or a no.

As you can imagine, the game has been branded as ‘demonic’, ‘spiritual’, and ‘not to be played’ as it calls on the spirit of Charlie to answer these questions.

If you want a visual explanation of this, then here is a Twitter video explaining the game.

Now that I’m assuming you understand the game, how it is played, and what it is about – let’s get to the reactions.

When a game like this enters into the Nigerian space, you already know that the jokes are going to be lit. Here are 11 Nigerian Reactions to Charlie Charlie. Trust me, they’re good!
