But he also did something interesting as he spoke a few words of Yoruba Language and even used it to 'confuse' an Hausa man who does not understand the language.

Sharing the video, the man wrote on YouTube:

"Nigeria: It's the giant of Africa, population-wise at least. But that's not what it's known for around the world. Scams, crime, kidnappings - that's what Westerners think of when they think of Nigeria. But I knew there was more to this country than that. There was jollof rice, for example. It was time to start my journey in the megacity of Lagos, at the (in)famous Elegushi Beach."
