Blog Story: Typical Nigerians

‘Warri no dey carry last’. A slang that has turned into a motivational anthem for every Nigerian. The typical Nigerian soars high like an Eagle and has the fighting spirit of a Dragon. In defeat, there is always hope for redemption because of the zeal, determination, gusto, and resilience shown at all times.

Despite the socio-economic challenges and misinterpretation on the international stage for crime, fraud and other problems, our athletes have made it a point of duty to redeem our image.

The successful Nigerian athletes like Anthony Joshua, Ese Brume, Tobi Amusan, Victor Osimhen, Asisat Oshoala, Aruna Quadri, and Israel Adesanya help presents us to the world as a people with immense and ever growing talent, will, strength, courage and wealth.

Consequently, their achievements have also ignited hope, joy, pride, and redemption for many who could only identify as one Nigeria irrespective of the demographic of these athletes.
