Culture: Culture is the name for what people are interested in, their thoughts, their models, the books they read and the speeches they hear, their table-talk, gossip, controversies, historical sense and scientific training, the values they appreciate, the quality of life they admire. All communities have a culture. It is the climate of their civilization. I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music. I am Nigerian, born and raised. Every ethnic group in Nigeria has its own stories of where its ancestors came from. Growing up in Nigeria was a lot of beautiful moment, Primary school up to secondary school. You can ask me anything.
History: The histories of the people in northern and southern Nigeria prior to colonization followed vastly different paths. The first recorded empire in present-day Nigeria was centered in the north at Kanem-Borno, near Lake Chad. This empire came to power during the eighth century C.E. By the thirteenth century, many Hausa states began to emerge in the region as well.
Nigerian fashion is highly trendy and revolutionary. You often find the latest designs and redesigns of style and patterns. Typical wear is colorful especially for the women and the tradition wear of most Nigerian men and women is the style called buba which is usually sown as a lose fitting long sleeved shirt or blouse. Other common style include skirts, trousers or pants, scaff and are mostly made of ankara materiel. You are going to be seeing more of this on me during the Men’s week.
