“One in five Africans is Nigerian and they certainly represent throughout the Diaspora. Much of the time, however, the over 150 million Nigerians in the world are unfairly associated with 419 email scams,” reported The Atlanta Post last month. So to counter this stereotype–and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Nigeria’s independence this year , The Post listed ten things you can learn from a Nigerian. Like: “How To Make Art A Weapon for Revolution” (that’s the guy above); “How to Own a Major Airport In The Country That Colonized Yours;” etcetera. You get the drift.
