In that regard, Gift had mentioned to them he had some cultural attires with him. And his colleagues at Nottingham University, UK wanted to try them out and they did as can be seen in pictures he showcased.
He also spoke about their desire to visit Nigeria someday.
"Very often, my friends ask about Nigeria and our rich culture. So one evening, I casually said to my friends, I have some cultural attires from Nigeria, and they immediately wanted to try them. Funny story, I almost forgot, and they reminded me about the dresses as they were looking forward to it. I think they rocked it pretty well!
"Don’t worry! They also have tasted Ogbono, Egusi and Groundnut soups with Semo and Eba, Beans and Garri and our world best Jollof Rice. They want to see the beautiful country and people that is #Nigeria someday, and I hope it becomes a reality."

"This is beautiful. I love your write-up too and I identify with some of the things you said. Soon, God willing, we will not only brag about Nigeria outside Nigeria but also in Nigeria when we proudly invite our foreign friends to come experience the wonderment that is NIGERIA.
"Thanks for doing a good job in repping Nigeria.
"The best part of this post for me is when you said..."I identify with all" referring to the cultures linked with the outfits.
"I pray many other Nigerians understand that our differences adds to our strength (both individual and collective)and embracing other Nigerian cultures and not seeing them as a threat is POWER & BEAUTY wrapped together."
