Becoming Nigeria

July 27, 2021

– JayPaul.

Shine Ya Eye is the title of the 6th season of Bbnaija

I’m not formally introducing the housemates but I will highlight some moments as the season moves along.

Tonight the housemates received their first task brief of the season. On Friday evening will be dazzled with a musical theatrical portraying Nigeria’s diverse tribes and cultural traditions, danced, sung and narrated, through the eyes of the 22 housemates. Well actually 20 because amongst them are two wildcards who could go home on Sunday if they are correctly identified by the housemates. But that is a matter for Thursday.

JAYPAUL, coined the title of this post. I’m not sure if the very opinionated housemates will find consensus, but I found it a catchy title for this post, although I would agree with SAGA, for a musical it may not be that catchy.

Be that as it may I needed to do a quick search of the various tribes in Nigeria and found the following link. It gives a fairly simple but comprehensive overview of the vast diversity of people in a country called Nigeria.

With about 197 million people belonging to any of the 300 ethnic tribes present in Nigeria, this West African country is the most diverse nation in modern Africa. Here’s a concise guide to some of the indigenous people of Nigeria.

Too many interesting people, faces, cities and towns to mention. A great reference point – for me at least – as we slowly sail deeper into the season.
