It is a sad day for Nigerian Twitter as Snikoggs, one of the most popular creators of pun and exceptional wordplay has been exposed as a scam who steals other people’s intellectual property.
The original creator of many of his jokes outed him by screenshotting his’ and Snikoggs’ side by side each other, and we are still overwhelmed.
After Daniel Edison, a 20 year old pun-writer, posted these and more screenshots, Snikoggs response was that he had gotten the jokes from a closed Facebook group, and the ‘owner’ – a certain Jeremy – had said they were his own and he could use them.
Well, Nigerians are not buying that and after the initial shock, we are, in our usual fashion, dragging the Abuja-based ‘cool’ kid all over the place.
See our top reactions.
Wow Snikoggs stole his tweets? Yurily never know people.
So all this time Snikoggs had a ghostwriter?? I'm sick.
I feel for all the girls who offed pant for Snikoggs off these puns.
Brethren, take a minute and realize they slept with the wrong pun star
Every day for snikoggs. One day for the owner. Tears.
So they employed snikoggs off stolen tweets? And you people say it's just Twitter.
No wonder when we hired him to work for us his puns were so bad we were all wondering is this the same guy? ?
So Snikoggs, how many of that guy's jokes did you steal?
First chuuzus. Then therealfbk. Now Snikoggs.
All the consistently funny accounts.

I feel for @DanielEdison_ he's just 20 and he's a REAL aspiring comedian with lesser followers than Snikoggs.

Even years ago, when I used to steal tweets it wasn't this bad.
Too smart to watch Big Brother but you're not too smart to be a twitter pick pocket.

I'm perplexed because Snikoggs is not just some guy tweeting jokes. He performs on stage live. But Basketmouth steals jokes too so…
And this is not a lie. See him perform his (stolen? Sounds original) puns live.
