Nigerians: a group of people who haven’t quite mastered the art of minding their business. As long as we are breathing the same air my matter “concerns” you. Nigerians who grew up in Nigeria are uncensored. If you’ve travelled for a month and you’ve gained a pound while you were away…. there’s that one Aunty who will look at you straight in the eye and say, “Oh girl, it’s like you’ve gotten fat o” While taking a picture in the TUK-TUK / KE-KE today several people walked pass and asked, na for ke-ke you wan snap picture? My ability to see the beauty around me that most fail to notice each day is a gift I don’t take for granted. As a result of this, doing the kind of work I do, in my country, is often seen as a novelty (but not in a good way). The interior of this KE-KE was way too groovy to not take a snap. ISSA VIBE! #kekeoflife #thanksmrmohammed #seeingafricadifferently
