50 Things That Happen Only In Nigeria

naija for life

I travelled away from Nigeria for almost 2 years and I missed my country like crazy. We might not have the constant electricity, dependable internet, functional system, tarred roads that developed countries have but there is no place like home. I missed waking up to my neighbour’s generator, I missed agege women singing thier “buy your agege bread” tone, I missed shouting “owa and mobole” when inside buses, I missed climbing okada, I missed the hustle and bustle of Lagos. So much more. This #OnlyInNigeria tread is mostly for my Nigerians in diaspora.
