The activities lined up went well.I enjoyed participating in some of the events.

For the Nigeria Night which took place last week Saturday, October 7th, 2017, my family wore our native attires and one of the climax for me was tying a gele (African head gear) 😀. I hadn’t tie one in 14 months (since I came to Canada). The first time I attempted to tie a gele on Nabeelah was on her first birthday photo shoot, she didn’t allow us successfully tie the gele, so we gave up. The second attempt was on this night. Thanks to my darling friend, who helped us with the gele.

The night was fun filled. From eating local foods, to meeting other Nigerians living in Nova Scotia, to seeing all kinds of African wears and Nigerians styles, listening to just African (particularly Nigerian) songs. I’ll be sharing some of the videos on my social media pages.
