While watching, LEGOS was the first name that came to mind. Even if it's one name from African, it should have been LAGOS.

In the TV series Lost one of the main characters was a towering Nigerian ex warlord turned pastor called 'Mr. Eko'. He spoke Yoruba on several occasions.

In the movie Bourne Identity the main antagonist that was being hunted by the CIA also spoke Yoruba and claimed to be from west Africa.

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.

I AGREE WITH YOU ... AND THE BRITISH MONARCH SHOULD HANDOVER IMMEDIATELY TO PRINCE 'RANDY ANDY' ANDREW WHO WILL MAKE A BETTER KING THAN CHARLES.
IN CASE YOU ARE WONDERING I DON'T DRINK, I DON'T SMOKE... AND I DON'T SNORT.
