Blackish......in the series a girl was telling her younger brother to be careful with the way he chats with strangers, that some of the beautiful girls he thinks he's chating with could be a Nigerian scammer in Lagos.

The big problem is that Buhari is clueless about how to move Nigeria forward and now the fans are protesting at Old Trafford. It will be interesting to see how everything plays out in the coming days. But in my opinion, I think we need to tax the rich more, increase the minimum wage and Hitler should face the law as soon as possible.

Also, some of the recent TV series have actors that are Nigerian or have Nigerian roots. Little drops of water.

firstratedcitiz:
In the 2004 supernatural thriller season film, LOST, Nigeria is referenced in one of the episodes where John Locke inspected a light aircraft that crashed near the island. The plane was conveying Nigerian drug traffickers disguised as Catholic priests. John Locke and his companion, Boone, found some currency notes tucked inside the pocket of one of the crash victims. When Boone inquired what type of currency was that, Locke replied:
"Nigerian naira."

Well done Bro, you analyze that part finish, I was even trying to recall.
In the crashed aircraft, the holy Mary statues was loaded with heroin, it was even Boone that discovered it. I think the priest name was Bayo a formal militant.
