    1. Am with you on that, gone are those days that it’s believe that Nigerians are only good for the dirty jobs in foreign countries but things are different now. we are making history; so to say.


      1. yes we are, but more clean minimal work needs to be out there and there is so much room to grow if we all work collectively to apply our selves and ensure that our style is recognized worldwide. I mean look internationally, there is vogue, elle, instyle, cosmopolitan, W, and the list goes on and on, there should be more options for Nigerian style and culture too.
