You're of a different generation. I'm talking about the ones under 30. Certainly the ones I have met. They're more likely to have traveled to London than anywhere else in Africa.

It was difficult for us, going into Africa. At times. But later it got easier, I loved moving north, working, tourism.

Try lying in on a Sunday, in Bloemfontein, with 50 NG Church bells going of through the city. :uhoh:

It's not that bad when you're inside the church.

Yep. Well remembered. Never went further north than Ibadan though, so I can't comment on Kano. All of the comments above ring true.


had never really thought about going back to visit but this thread is planting a seed

Spent a few weeks there in late 90s and had a good time.

My reflections:
ALL the guys are players cheating on their women left, right and centre
They have some right hotties
Generally very friendly down to earth decent hardworking people
The scamsters are typically poor as dirt, looking for a way out in a country full of corruption
There is always a low level threat you will be robbed when outside of main compounds
They have no leaders, and those who are in positions of authority (and their families) at all levels are raping the country
Some good places to drink on VI, little elsewhere
Jollof rice, fried plantain, chicken and coleslaw is a top meal
They only watch footy (mainly English Premiership)
There are people everywhere
When in traffic, they will see your whiteness and approach to sell you any old shit calling you 'Master', which is awkward
Pretending to fall asleep in the car is a good way for the panhandlers to leave you alone

20% of all black people on the planet live in Nigeria (give or take)

With that % likely to rise

Out of interest where did you hear that?

Nigeria (175 million est.) is about 17.5% of sub saharan Africa (figure excludes the Arab states) which is about 1 billion. That's also not including about 40 million African Americans in the USA, and I'd imagine the population for the Caribbean would be about 20 million, and lets say about 25 million for North, Central and South Latin America.

Not disputing, just kind of bored on a Friday so decided to crunch some numbers.
