HE IS HARDWORKING…Compared to his counterparts in Diaspora, the Nigerian man is a natural hustler. Not for him the queuing at the Giro office or sitting on the sidewalk, swigging from a bottle of booze, hollering at sistas.
Even if he does that you can be sure he has finished work and is just kidding around, which brings me to the next characteristic…HE PLAYS HARD….what’s all that hard work for if you don’t get to spend the proceeds?
” he is doted and waited on hand and foot by the female folk in the family…whether mothers, sisters, aunties and their girlfriends/wives are expected to pick up from there.
How many a little girl have had to wash dishes and when asked if Junior can join her, have been told “No! ” How many a heart has been broken by those brown, twinkly eyes and wicked, dimpled grin?
There’s always some house-warming, Child Dedication, Birthday or new item to “wash” which leads me to the fact that…HE LOVES THE GOOD THINGS OF LIFE…just drive through Lagos or any of the other major cities in Nigeria and check out the flashy cars, fancy homes and hot night spots.
