Mantana, don't like to out myself on posts, like to keep people guessing although some what obvious. But can you post more pictures. I've been to Nigeria twice and must say I appreciate the way the women take care of themselves and have much pride. Love that men (well most African men in general) prefer women with some thickness. Can you post pictures of your hotels, natives, and nightlife? Please share videos of your dances too (we tend to watch lots of videos and movies from your country, one fact you forgot to mention is that Nigeria's infusion and growth in the film industry).

^^^Thanks. I hope you had an enjoyable experience when you visited? Did you go to Lagos? Yes I should have mentioned the growth that Nigeria has been experiencing in the movie industry.

I'll post a few videos/images in a second.

Had a good time each time I went. First time was for a wedding (good next thread, African weddings). Have been to Lagos. Think the film industry in Nigeria is the #1 market in Africa.

I typically take to Bellanaija for very extensive photos of events, the scene and a very nice blend of the traditional blended with the modern. I will post a few pictures of this very soon.

But I will start with Fashion and style, which is high point for many Nigerians.

An example is the Arise Fashion Week event hosted in Lagos (2012). This was also a noted new addition to the Mercedez Benz Fashion Week in New York, but the Nigerian organizers bringing it home for a change was nice.

Red Carpet Wears on the event.


A few noted Designers (all Nigerian, except noted otherwise):

Tiffany Amber
















Maki Oh:

I'm happy to hear that you had a nice time. Yes, a wedding thread would be nice.
