I got into Twitter and the phrase, ‘Old Taker’ were sprinkled everywhere and everyone else seemed to understand. Why some of us got the meaning or at least what it might just be defined as, a lot of others are really not so sure.
So before I go on with some of the jokes, what does it really mean?
What Do You Mean When You Call Someone An Old Taker?
Old Taker simply put means someone that has formerly gotten paid the ‘street way’.
I won’t be going deeper, this is what my source says.
According to a tweet from Nigerian superstar rapper, Erigga;
To whom it may concern the term “old taker” simply means “formal big boy”
Simply put, it means someone who had collected before and maybe run out of cash or something of that nature. I don’t know for exact, regular street slangs don’t really ever have rigid definitions.
Why Is The Phrase Trending?
Singer, Kaptain used the line, ‘Well day must break again and old taker must take again‘ in his song‘, Gbese Gbese.
It was a kind of prayer point for people who have cashed out from their businesses and hustles to continue cashing out.
Twitter users however didn’t take it exactly the way the artist would have wanted, and the jokes are there to tell.
Here are some of my favorite tweets from the trend;
