I miss the constant welcome every time. Policemen and Airport Officials saying 'Welcome to Nigeria Madame'...Children are respectful unlike in London where they smoke cigarette while wearing uniform. People running to open doors for me..INSISTING on carrying my luggage for me. The way people Beg me to enter their shops. The reaction as I hand over money to children who sell pure water. The way people say Oya quick 'put the fan she's from London grin..Cold STAR BEER, Point and kill Catfish, Bitterleaf soup, Agiga Bread...The Preachers (on the so called Luxurious busses)that DEMAND dat everybody prays at 5am during the journey. The way Strangers STARE and trip when they hear my voice.. smiley The heat...the beautiful Palm trees....Da colours...Men easily wear yellows,greens, pink and brigh colours, the beauty and zeal of the people. The DRAMAAAaa and Comedy sights of Heavy, Fat woman with overload bakassi riding Okada with bags on her head...Da Night Clubs in Enugu and Lagos! Blazing it up wit my crew and partying like a gangsat... Flossing like a Star. visiting da money changers grin People dancing Azonto in Church as the collection goes round (4) Four times... My Lovely family...the Beautiful HEAT ! kiss....Black faces everywhere....TO FEEL LIKE BEYONCE FOR 2 WEEKS>> DAMN RIGHT I LIKE IT.... Who wouldnt like it?....We work hard and Party harder!! Dose dat jelos me can join me wit good mind or hug transformer. Nigerian guys are Always friendlier than SOME girls... I wonder why? lolz

Like somebody pointed out already; NAIJA FREEDOM NO GET PART TWO. I'm at my freest in Nigeria. I'm not going to trade that again with any cramped lifestyle in the West.

Despite the hot sun, many things keep me smiling in Naija. Naija women are the finest too.

I miss some of my favourite foods like moi-moi, akara. Although i travelled with packaged beans powder, i still miss them because they taste better when prepared with fresh beans.

I miss my church, all our nigerian praise & worship songs...
& most importantly i miss my family!
