There are certain activities that happen in dreams that are seen as troubling.
The Yorubas have a saying that dreams are stupid. We have dreams that defy logic and seem weird to us.
There is a school of thought that believes that no dream is stupid, no matter how silly it is. These people believe a dream holds a lot of meaning and is a snapshot of an event that will likely happen in one's life.
This has led to myths concerning certain types of objects in your dreams. Interpretation of dreams is taking seriously in Nigeria because of the belief that dreams indicate possible futuristic events.
Here are some of the popular activities that are considered bad when they occur in dreams;
1) Eating in your dream
It is widely believed that eating food in your dream is a bad omen. The popular interpretation of this is that you are being poisoned by your enemy. This particular belief has been duplicated so many times in Nollywood over the decades.
2) Having sex in your dream
