Ok, so there’s this TV show in the US called 90 Day Fiancé where they showcase Americans getting married to people from different countries. On this newest season there’s a man named Usman Umar who goes by Soja Boy saying he’s a famous rapper in Nigeria. I’m just curious if that’s true. Has anyone ever heard of him? And if so, what do you think of his music? Also, has anyone in Nigeria seen the show? What do you all think of it?
I look at some of our culture and norms and I feel like some of them need to die a horrible death and be forgotten. Here's are a few examples
Asking someone who just made a huge purchase like a car or house to "wash it" for you. No, how about you give that person money as they are obviously out of pocket or encourage them? Smh. If it is a car, don't ask them to wash it but offer to buy them a full tank of petrol or something.
Bride pride shouldn't be a thing. The time and culture of it has long gone. Some tribe effectively sell their daughter with unreasonable demand and list. Please let it die already. If two grown adult want to marry, give your blessing and let them go.
Birthdays; don't ask them to give you gifts either. It is their day so pampering them may be a good idea. You know, let's give more and take less.
One controversial one, I think we need to break up. We are clearly different along tribal and cultural line. Let the Hausa go away and Yoruba go do their own... keep reading on reddit ➡
Will our country ever be great again, this is harsh to say but will it ??
Hello, I probably will go to Nigeria for a 3 month internship next summer. Honestly , I don't know Nigeria very well , but I tried to search on the internet about diseases & terrorism in Nigeria. Most of the results I discovered is the yellow Fever disease , please provide me an honest information.
is it all private?
how much is it to be covered?

what are some of the popular health insurance providers?
I was on here before talking about my eventual move to Nigeria (https://www.reddit.com/r/Nigeria/comments/engse7/american_about_to_move_to_lagos_very_nervous_and/). I've been prepping for it. One thing I'm curious about is bank accounts. Did you guys set up local accounts and split your salary between that and your foreign account? Or is the hassle/risk of a local account so high, that it'd be better to just pay the transaction cost of withdrawing money from your home account whenever you need cash (in my case, my bank doesn't charge any ATM fees or foreign transaction fees, so that should bring the cost a bit lower)? My fear of doing this is if my card gets cancelled, I'll need to have the replacement internationally shipped.
Hello I'm a Bangladeshi resident. My country is good at producing Textile, RMG, Medicine, Agro Products. I'm willing to import those products to any country. If anyone want anything, please give me a knock
It perfectly fine to have a general knowledge of foreign politics, but ours go deeper than just the surface. Even sometimes I see Nigerians arguing with foreign nationals about their policies and government. This is very cringe.
A strong contender was Sir Odumegwu Ojukwu but I’m biased sha, what are your option?.
How do one tackle this kind of behaviour Incan area that's mostly neglected by government for decades and where there are little awareness to marine/environment conservation? The people are clearly unaware and there are probably no staff to enforce any laws that are designed to protect this animals.
What's the way forward?
Do you have any website or institution that can provide those files such as:
Rainfall isohyets or Isohyetal maps
I'm doing some research on something, and it seems to me that it's between 2 types - the eagle and the black crowned crane. The black crowned crane is the official one, but I mostly see references to eagles (unless that's just a football thing). Which one would you perceive to be the national bird of Nigeria?
I’m a medical professional, born in Naija and lived most of my life in the US. I’m young with no husband or children so I decided this will be the only time to do this. I’m not going to flaunt, as I’ll be living as minimally as possible, my mother keeps discouraging me to do this. I haven’t talked to any family in Nigeria about this. I would like to work and gain experience in the Nigerian health system if possible. This will be in Lagos mostly because I have more family there. Help.
Hi beloved people from Nigeria! From /r/Argentina we decided to send a message to all the country subreddits without any motive, we hope you're happy. The idea came from a user that did that in /r/France a few days ago.
If you have questions about Argentina I will answer you!
New fund sources were needed as heightened risk perception reduced inflows into the country by 43%.
I'm considering moving to Lagos, Nigeria, but I want fast internet.
Last night the reports broke that sadly coronavirus is now in my country Nigeria. I live in the US but my parents who live in Nigeria work at a customer facing company with a lot of foreign nationals coming in and out. I called them and told them to stock up on face masks and hand sanitizers because they are about to to be scarce (Cant import from china and everyone buying it up). My mom told me that in the past couple of weeks since the coronavirus has been in the news, she has bought over 1000 boxes of face masks and hand sanitizers and importing more and her staff will be giving them out for free if it gets any worse. Since the start of coronavirus the price gouging has been intense and if this thing gets worse, no way low income people would be able to buy it.
I have fallen in love all over again. The generosity that this woman shows everyone just amazes me all the time. In my life here in America, i would go above and beyond for people and even some think its weird that i'm gene... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm wondering how strict they are about this - mine is valid for another few months but may expire during my stay so I'm wondering if I should get another
Hey guys! I'm working on a school project about clean energy and have to find out which types of supplies is being used in Nigeria. Is it actually eco-friendly? If not, what alternatives could be used?
I'm a UK/Nigerian citizen interested in going into some kind of professional service. When people talk about a lack of jobs in Nigeria, I think these are the kind of jobs they mean. Cushy corporate jobs and high flying finance roles.
I'm a part of a charity which is supposed to help graduates from poorer backgrounds find top graduate roles. Through them, I've been exposed to corporate side of the western world, and there are a few things which really bother me.
The first is how it's near impossible to find out what these people do unless you're already one of them. You can spend 3 years studying accounting at university, and still graduate with basically zero knowledge of what an accountant does day to day. Plus, things change constantly and quickly - Microsoft Office did not exist 20 years ago, but now it's basically impossible to do modern accounting without an internet connection and a computer.
The second is how much networking can effect how far you go in these industries, even... keep reading on reddit ➡
Would really appreciate anyone's help in fielding these - the embassy in my country is very difficult to reach :(
I have a business visa valid for 2-years. It seems that 90 days is the max duration on this visa - does this mean If I want to stay longer than 90 days, I need to leave Nigeria and re-enter before day 90, or is there a way around this?
My yellow fever certificate is expiring in 2 months, but I plan to stay longer than this. Has anyone had any issue re-entering without a Yellow Fever certificate, or an expired one?
What if I enter with a valid certificate, but it expires while I'm in Nigeria? Has this happened to anyone and has it mattered?
Also share your police/Law Enforcement stories.
How can beliefs in juju,witchraft, Christianity, and Islam be abolished so Nigeria can become a society guided by reason and scientific progress?
The Nigerian state security service under General Buhari has abducted human rights activist & US based journalists Yele Sowore few hours after he was released from over 120days illegal detention. 100s of Nigerians have been suffering similar fate under Gen. Buhari. #FreeSowore
