Another week has ended with lots of social media trends we can’t stop talking about. Lets get down to the ones that shook the whole of social media.

Compliment gone wrong as Nigerians react to ‘You Smell Nice’

A HR personnel simply identified as Taiwo probably expected a lot of empathy when she took to Twitter to narrate how she embarrassed a male job-seeker who told her she smelled nice during an interview.

But what she got wasn’t quite what she expected. While some people agreed with her that the compliment was inappropriate, many people felt there was nothing wrong with it. Some even went as far as insinuating the joblessness of the man involved was his only crime.

Trust Nigerians and their creativity, soon enough memes started emerging. One of them was the unveiling of “You Smell Nice” Perfume.

Even Nollywood refused to be left out as they recreated their own version of the interview.

Even fashion designers latched on to the trend to design You Smell Nice T-Shirt.

Cristiano Ronaldo hat trick and Messi’s Response

Five time world best player, Cristiano Ronaldo put in a brilliant performance on Tuesday night to send Juventus into the quarter final of the UEFA Champions League.

Ronaldo’s hat trick was so impressive that the whole of twitter and other social media platforms sang his praises for a while.

But the story changed when arch rival, Lionel Messi scored a brace with two assists which many people thought was a better performance.


This inadvertently led to the comparison of both players. Nonetheless, with 124 goals in the UCL, Ronaldo remains the competition’s most accomplished performer.

Lagos School Building Collapse Leaves Nigerians Furious

A three-storey building in Ita-Faaji area of Lagos Island collapsed on Wednesday. Unofficial sources claim at least 11 pupils of a nursery and primary school located on the building lost their lives.

While Nigeria mourned, some members of the opposition decided to play politics with the unfortunate incident.

Nonetheless, the buck stops at the desk of the Lagos state government. It was thus necessary to remind them that paying lip service to such man-made disasters is no longer an option.

In all, we hope the government listens to the people’s plea to avoid future occurrence. We At Technext.NG mourn with families that lost loved ones.
