Why Nigerians like to wear insanely bright colors?

April 10, 2007

Oh don’t even pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about. Just do the following: lie to a Naija girl that you’re Yoruba, Igbo or something (to win her favors and hopefully get invited to a Naija wedding). Once at the wedding, take out your digital camera and document the horror :-). The result: now you know exactly how many colors comprise the visible spectrum. There’s a Nigerian church on my block and every sunday looks like a reunion of once popular New Wave bands from the 80’s (think fluorescent yellow, green, blue and etc.). As for an explanation, I’m really clueless on this one so if someone could enlighten me, it’d be much appreciated.

PS: i love Nigerian people 😉
