Have you heard the saying “Naija no dey carry last” as in …while there is no perfect country, Nigeria has its own great highlights and talents doing the country proud and they would not ‘be last’ doing it. Let’s enjoy this choreography/dance flash mob (which is getting quite customary in pop culture these days) This will be the first flashmob at an airport terminal in Nigeria. It consists of a mix of professional dancers, cleaning company staff and the Bi-Courtney Aviation Services employees. The CEO, CEO’s wife and COO of the airport also participate at the end.Great way to close the year and keep the traveling public happy. Try to ignore the background comments of the mobile videographer (which is comic relief in itself) 😀
If you’ve never been to Nigeria, here is a view of the kind of food/snacks you’ll see on a road trip.

Are your taste buds activated? If you are based internationally, Do Visit Nigeria sometime.. All the entertainment celebrities have already seen the light, Mariah Carey, Wyclef Jean and J Moss just left 🙂
So this musical comedic duo, ‘The Komolafe Twins’ aka Naijaboyz have been in hiatus for a while. I’ve always been amused by their African take on mainstream pop music through their intentionally satirical videos and spoofy remixes. So they just launched their comeback with an ‘African Parents’ spin on disciplining their wayward teenagers, influenced by ‘Miley Cyrus’ using her “Wrecking Ball” music video. You need to be conversant with all the drama surrounding Miley Cyrus and the ‘Wrecking Ball’ video and maybe a little more familiar with the ‘legality’ and regularity of corporal punishment back in Nigeria ( and maybe Africa in general) especially pre-MTV generation to enjoy the video. Funny enough I was just having that conversation yesterday about how we got spanked in secondary school albeit as innocent students alongside the perpetrator if no one owned up to the accusation ha ha.:D.
Nevertheless, this is just plain and simple – hilarious.
So here goes NaijaBoyz Music video Miley Cyrus performing ‘Wrecking Ball’ The African Remix.. Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball (Chatroulette Version) By the way, “Chop Igbati” means “Give you a dirty and resounding slap” (not a literal translation lol but that’s the idea, “chop”- pidgin for “take it”, igbati – “slap” in Yoruba)
Young generation ‘Africans in America’, or in the ‘West’ in general, you have to relate.. 😀
