We love to live life fully. 
We are bold, sometimes it makes us appear arrogant, sorry Ghanaians. 

Our English is somewhere between funny and wrong. 

We speak the best pidgin in the world. 

We are naturally dramatic and funny, any Nigerian can entertain you like a professional. 

We really love music and dancing. 

We are the life of the party. 

We love to spend and show off, girls you will never pay the bills. 

We are into weddings and making it the talk of the town. 

We are supper smart, and are good writers too. 

Our girls are really beautiful and our boys charming. 

We go to school pretty earlier than most, at least I’m sure earlier than most Ghanaians. I don’t know if it is our passion for education or just our natural ability to be fast or too fast. 

Our food is great, really great, with lots of varieties to choose from, some might repel you, others might just whet you. 

We are not the most refined people on the average, but we’ve got one another’s back, especially when we find ourselves in a strange country. 

We love our country, even with all her shortcomings, we don’t have anywhere else to go, this is home. 

Nigerians love Ghanaians, come on, proof lies in the jollof wars and the constant teasing, and the fact that our boys marry Ghanaian girls. 

I’m a living proof of that. 

It’s our birthday and today I want to thank God for choosing Nigeria for me, she gave me a good childhood, boldness that Ghanaians secretly envy, and a really fun life. Forget about the bad things I picked up, Ghana has diluted all that, actually my Church has, but this is not about Ghana. 

To all Nigerians, keep living life, I can’t promise life will be better, but let’s keep praying, for our leaders, for our country, and let’s make the best of our lives, because really some have it worse. Let’s be grateful and say, 

Happy Independence Day Nigerians, proud to be one, always.
