Kids are arranged into two circles, one with one more member than the other. When a signal is given, they begin to run in opposite directions singing “fire on the mountain, run, run, run” until a whistle signalling – “fire is up!” is blown. Then each player tries to get a partner from the other circle.

After the scramble, the player without a partner is penalised to do certain stunts or made to squat in the centre of the circle. The removal process continues until one pair is left and the pair are crowned the winners.  The name for this game varies across Nigerian cultures.

 

Tinko Tinko

Girls especially loved this one. It involves two partners facing each other, while the theme song is sang by both as the game goes on. With hands held half way up, they begin the game which involves interchanging of hands front and back and slamming of hands by both partners. In this game, a lot of clapping happens in this game.

Who Is In The Garden:

Here, the children make a big circle, starting with singing “form a big circle”. After that, the anchor then stays in the middle and runs in the circle singing, “ Who is in the garden a little fine boy/ girl (depending on the sex of the child) can I come and see him/ her, then everybody then responds “No” “No” “No”, then the anchor someone else and says “follow me”. This cycle is repeated until the last person remains, then others go in hiding while the last person goes searching for them.

 

Police and thief:

This was like Nigerian kids replicating action blockbursters. In this game, there are the good guys (police) and the bad guys (thieves) but the stolen object is imagined. The kids then divide themselves into two groups, then the police group will try to find and catch those people playing thieves.

 

Ten Ten:

In playing this game, girls stand facing each other and clap their hands as they move their legs to a rhythm. The goal of each girl during this game is to ensure that she does not raise the same leg directly facing the other girl – which means it is no problem for a girl to raise a left leg when the other girl raises a right leg. The moment a girl raises the wrong leg, the other girl scores a point.

Boju-Boju:

 This is the Nigerian version of hide and seek. Every other person goes into hiding and the person seeking will start by singing the song, ‘boju boju o…’ and after singing, he starts to chase and anyone he/she catches will be the next to seek. Every seeker starts his/her chase by sing the song.

Peter Okoye a.k.a. Mr P of the defunct P-Square has threatened to sue a show promoter for using his photo to sell his twin brother’s show in Angola.

Pub Four, the organiser of the show posted a notice of a show with the picture of Peter and his brother, Paul expecting to perform in the event in Angola.

The singer, however, did not find it funny that his photo was being used to advertise a show that had nothing to do with him.

The 37-year-old Jos-born entertainer from Ifite Dunu, Anambra State, with 6.2 million followers took to his Instagram handle @peterpsquare to issue his threat.

“Na Wa o! So they needed my image to sell their show in Angola. This promoters @pubfoureventos you’ll be hearing from my lawyers soon. #UnaDonFindMyTrouble. SWIPE LEFT.’’

Earlier, Paul Okoye a.k.a. Rudeboy on his instragram @iamkingrudy shared a photo of himself and his crew going to Angola alone without Peter

He wrote, “Angola coming through cc @cabosnoopofficial @rajishehu@djcharlieshee @tao20 @afasports

It is believed that the show would go on without Peter and only time would tell if he would sue the show promoter
