Very interesting list. I have been trying to get familiar with some, esp LWKMD, some I am seeing for the first time. I should add
SMHISM I- " shake my head in slow motion"

Harry Itie said...

The rest.... yea... They are a little far fetched... How can someone keep all these in their head?

Jaycee said...

The 1st two are things i see but I have never used any of the slangs on the list! Full confession I dont text, write or IM in slang. My only concession is k for ok and brb for be right back!

Omoregee said...

Most of 'em are new to me.....only familiar with the popular ones...LWKM, ROTFLMAO-Rolling on the floor laffing my a** off, SMH-Shaking my head.

I guess these slangs are Naija customized.
