Our happiness as Nigerians is not rated by what other people think of us but what we think of ourselves. All i Know is Being happy is all about our decision.
Now look at it from this angle, It is only in Nigeria they will use a terrible situation to crack jokes despite the fact that hardship trails the nation. E.g Oga@dTop.

There is too much poverty in nigeria.

Most nigerians are not happy with their situation.
Re: Are Nigerians Actually Happy People - Myth Or Fact by coputa(m): 7:26pm On Jul 01, 2013
The people living in the countries mentioned here are living above human standard,hence they have no option than to be happy..we did not expect otherwise..on the contrary,nigerians are suffering and living below human standard,yet they are happy..that's why we fall into the happiest people of the world...we are a peculiar people...i

After we've been brainwashed with this song in primary school, how we no go happy? No matter the situation, we must create humor out of it.

Truth is I don't think we are as happy as we claim to be.

-no job for youths
-no good roads
-health system is a disaster
-a lot of sufferness
-no this, no that

Abeg nigerians are not happy people.

swallow your words mr man,
there are lots of rich people out there that are not happy.

Re: Are Nigerians Actually Happy People - Myth Or Fact by Nobody: 7:44pm On Jul 01, 2013
big myth. I work in the development/donor sector and my job brings me in contact daily with Nigerians in the lower income strata of the society. more than 70% of the country's population are in this strata and they are not smiling, they are very angry.

Re: Are Nigerians Actually Happy People - Myth Or Fact by nerodenero: 7:48pm On Jul 01, 2013
Nigerians are not happy people.How can one be happy when he or she cant afford 3 meals per day.How can one be happy when there are no basic amenities.How can one be happy when PHCN isnt different from darkness.How can one be happy when so many graduates roam the streets without job.How can one be happy when security of life is an expensive commodity.I can go on and on.Truth be told,Nigerians always strive hard no matter how difficult the situation is, to make ends meet but we are far from being happy.
