Some people are going to go all deep today and whine about how Nigeria is a "fool @ 50". All those negative Nonsos are just bitter no one is inviting them to chop party rice. I don't blame them. If I had to spend independence day on my own, I'd be mad too. As for me and my house, we are celebrating 50 years in style.
Beer pong? No, we are playing palmwine pong. Suya on deck. I flew some Hausa people to get it done right. As a bigz boys, I gast represent.
On a serious note though, I hear people talk about how they are ashamed to be Nigerian and how Ghana has taken our spot (tufiakwa). You can miss me with all that. I'm proudly Nigerian, probably jingoistic too. I can't think of anything I'd rather be. Ok, I lie, I'd rather be Brazilian. Bros, Brazilian babes toh behd!!! But that's a story for another day on another blog under another name.
Nigeria is bigger than the people in power. These people will come and go but Nigeria will still be here. Nigeria needs her people to be proud of her. There may be some moments of extreme hand-fallage...
...but there are times she makes us proud.
If you ever feel embarrassed to be Nigerian, look at the bright side, you aren't Ghanaian.
Happy independence day, Nigerians.
