Contestant Number 1 is <<|CFCfan|>>.

Cfcfan comes from the South East of Nigeria, and is a graduate of Political Science. He is in his mid 20's.

Goals: I want to gain admission into a law school, and thereafter become a practicing attorney.

Qualities I'm attracted to: I like people who are smart, funny, hardworking, and show respect to their peers.


Mentor/people I look up to: I would say the attorney that I intern for, and Justice Bunmi Awoniyi for her remarkable feat of being the first Nigerian to hold a judgeship in California.

Hobbies: I love nairalanding, reading news magazines, playing football (I'm an average player) and watching movies, sports etc.
What makes me different: This is a tough one. Anyway, the fact that I've never been to any other African country except Nigeria; and also being amongst a small fraction of Nigerians that studied a social science course (Political science) in a U.S. university.

His favourite dishes: I love all types of rice with plantain, chicken, meat and fish; beans, garri with any soup, spaghetti and noodles.

My outlook about life: I believe that failure is not the end of one's dreams/aspirations. If you don't succeed at something the first time try again. And the journey of life is not a sprint, but a marathon.

Why do I deserve to be Mr Nairaland?: Hmmm, I would say I deserve it because I'm an intelligent individual, and I'm confident in my looks.

Vote contestant Number 1, CFCfan, as the next Mr Nairaland.

Singing, talking and use of words are my skills.

Favourite dishes: Beans and its derivatives


Outlook about life: Life isn't meant to be lived alone and for yourself. Its about making an impact on everything around you. That's why I coined and acronym out of the word L.I.F.E: living it for everybody.

Qualities he admires: I admire people with ultimate self drive, people who keep their cool even when they are slighted, people who possess the qualities of loyalty, faithfulness, people who tell you your weakness, mistakes and failures without fear or favour.

Hobbies & Skills: I love using my spare time to read, research, contemplate about life and how to make the best out of it, I love cycling, swimming and tackling brain teasers.
Though I love the specialization of medicine, but am not a limited man, I can use my hands to fix anything fixable, can design complex artistry using a computer.

What makes me different: I believe am different because no other person on planet earth bears the same exact physiological and morphological replica of me.

Favourite dishes: I love a variety of dishes like but not limited to rice with stew sauce garnished with chunks of meat, my egusi soup, hot steaming ofe nsala, but above all, I love the real banga soup (ofe akwu) prepared by my mum whenever I come visiting and our native vegetable soup (awa) prepared with egusi with pieces of stockfish and meat cooked by my grandma. I hate draw soups!

Outlook on life: I am of the opinion that no matter the condition, place, family, skin colour or continent we find ourselves in, we are created and equipped with the right features and capabilities to leave our marks in the sands of time, only if we desire, have the determination and take the right decisions in life.

I have plans to complete a Masters degree in Engineering after my  NYSC in naija, and to work in a software company for four years and then go back to school to get a Masters degree in Business Administration.  I plan to go into the tech industry as an administrator and set-up a business  afterwards. I would love to be in a position where I can influence the lives of people positively either through rendering services or through direct aid.

I am very easygoing, focused,considerate and also very hardworking.  I take my responsibilities very seriously and would go to any length possible to make sure people are not inconvenienced because of me. Even though I am young, I understand what it means for a man to shoulder heavy responsibilities  as I have had to stand  in for my younger ones since my late-teenage years after an unfortunate family incidence. This has made me really mature both in mind and in the way I think. I have a classic story of someone who started at the bottom but is heading to the top.

I’ve got good looks and a nice personality and  should be Mr. Nairaland.‬
