Despite the fact that Ghanaians in general have been fighting with Nigerians at every given chance, there are some thing, despite very few, that we love about our not-so-friendly neighbours.

Sure Nigerians would claim to have the better version of jollof, a fallacy totally disproved, and even be deluded that they play better football (another fallacy as proved by the latest FIFA ranking) but there are some things we as Ghanaians undoubtedly love about Nigerians.

Here are 5 of the few things Ghanaians love about Nigerians.

1. Nigerian Music

If there’s anything that will bring together Ghanaians and Nigerians in a peaceful setting, it has to be the music. Whereas our Nigerian brothers have for years shown love to VIP (now VVIP) etc, Ghanaians have uncontrollably accepted Nigerian music wholeheartedly for years, even to a point of sidelining the locals acts.

Trust me, I know some people who prefer Davido or any of the Mavins over D Black any day. (To be fair, that’s not much of a comparison).

2. Nigerian Food

To be totally frank and make it clear, Ghanaians hate Nigerian Jollof just as anyone who understands the sacred nature of the meal should (and we have good reasons to); but there are some native Nigerian foods that we do appreciate.

Eba, Party Rice, Ankara, the banga soup and ewa are a few of these.

3. Nigerian Dance

We all know that Nigerians did copy the Azonto dance and rebranded it asAlingo. But you can’t hate them for that when they have done a better job at it.

 

Nigerian dance may not totally be unique but it is a really good and invigorating one. And who doesn’t like some good exercise

4. Nigerian Comedy

Another classic case where Ghanaians totally abandon local comics for Nigerian counterparts. MTN Ghana started this when they decided to headline consecutive editions of the “A Night Of…Laughs & Music” with Nigerian comedians like Basketmouth, Bovi etc.

And to be fair and honest, Nigerian comics are way better than the Ghanaian ones.

5. Nigerian Writers

Need I say more? Haven’t you as a Ghanaian student been forced to read Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe?

Or you didn’t love any of Chimamanda Adichie’s book? For a country boasting of a Nobel Laureate, Man Booker Prize and Women’s Prize for Fiction winners, and more Caine Prize recipients than any other African countries – Nigerians are truly masters of the written word.
