FOH: Nigerian Prostitutes Offer Free Sex At AFCON

Apparently the Association of Nigerian Prostitutes has offered one week of free sex if the Super Eagles are victorious in the Africa Cup of Nations. Side eye.


Apparently, the Association of Nigerian Prostitutes (ANP) has not only congratulated the Super Eagles on their advancement to the semi-finals, they're also promising one week of free sex if the Nigerian football team comes back home with a win.

We didn't know that the ANP is real, and we're not sure if its existence is a good thing (prostitutes forming a union is supposed to be a good thing, right?) However, we are pretty sure Nigeria's prostitutes aren't making enough to be offering free sex. This offer also trivializes prostitution and sex trafficking in Nigeria, as well as most other parts of the world - often an industry that endangers women and young girls. In conclusion: FOH to "free sex", joke or not. Extra wide side eye going on over here.
