#GrowingUpInAnAfricanHome Is Giving Us Serious Nostalgia and Serious Laughs

African Twitter relives the moments we all know too well with the hilarious and trending hashtag, #GrowingUpInAnAfricanHome.

Over the past 24 hours, African Twitter took a virtual trip down memory lane with #GrowingUpInAnAfricanHome.


Hilarious (but true) examples, moments and instances from Twitter users flooded the hashtag on the experience of being raised by African parents.

From discovering when the goods (i.e. juice) in the house only appear when visitors come over, to fetching the remote when your mom or dad is sitting one seat cushion away from the damn thing, these tweets definitely put one thing in perspective—the struggle was real, yet we’ve been riding the struggle bus together this whole time.
