I swear its twitter that is spoiling me. People say I am too serious, and I am looking at that one like “Come lemme introduce you to the devils perched on my shoulders whispering obscenities”.

Do you know what it means to be hungry, no drink, and then opening the trends section and the first thing you see is “Toto” as a writer for “shitoto.com” on twitter? Its definitely a sign from Eros the god of love and sex, and as an acolyte in that temple, I must bow my heads in gratitude for this opportunity.
My first question is, how did the word “toto” get to be associated with the private part in Nigeria? Who was the genius that coined the term? I am going to stake my money on a back alley ashawo in Lagos, precisely Ajegunle. Sounds like where such words are birthed.
As I scrolled through the trends, I knew that there was no way on God’s earth that @erigganewmoney won’t be on this. I like Erigga, man says the street as he lives it, he fucks the world “even if na him prick go pain” and one of his more descriptive sayings “Toto water no plenty but e reach make preeq swim” and the one that drew me to the conclusion that he has a hand in this trend? “Ashawo die toto rest”.
Anyways, as toto is trending on twitter, I just wanted to tell you that private part is no longer private on twitter, and you might just see what you were looking for.
My interest in this topic is borne simply out of the curiosity of a writer and a topic that has piqued the interest of every human. We must studiously learn, relearn and unlearn this topic.
