We at ZODML aim to project a positive image of Nigeria through our Discover Nigeria section and our new @Discover_NG Twitter handle. So we thought, what better way than to list the ten things we love most about our beautiful country? Scroll down to see our picks. 1. Our food
From classics like egusi soup and jollof rice (don't forget the dodo and chicken!) to regional specialities such as kilishi and banga, nothing beats a Nigerian home-cooked meal for deliciousness. Images from here and here
Nigeria gave the world highlife, the Kuti musical dynasty, and D'banj. If Kanye West agrees, need we say more?
Our ancestors set the bar for the Azonto-ers and Michael Jackson.
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.
From babariga to buba and iro, no one can deny the stylishness of Nigerians. Image source here
Ain't no party like a Nigerian party cos we don't bother nobody - we just show up 4 hours late and make sure we collect all of the souvenirs. 8. Our cultural festivals
When it comes to celebrating our heritage - from New Yam to Eyo - we proudly share our culture and history with the world. Image from here 9. The way we talk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soaZUh5nJ9s Even people from the world's superpowers love our language swag. 10. Our resilience
Nigerians have seen everything in the 52+ years since we gained independence from Britain - from civil war to natural disasters - but still we continue to persevere.
