Becoming Nigerian: A Guide


Be(com)ing Nigerian: A Guide is a satirical commentary on the different Nigerians you are likely to meet at home and abroad, on your way to heaven or to hell. Be(com)ing Nigerian is an outrageously funny and acerbic guide to how to be a Nigerian; from how to attain the much-maligned, but heady rank of politician to achieving the status of the silver-tongued, private jet-flying religious leader. It is a searing and darkly entertaining look at how power operates in private and in public; in politics, business, religious institutions and in homes. From the exploration of religious hypocrisy to the cautionary travel advice for Nigerians going to the United States, the collection is a jab at Nigerian society and its relation tot he world. Beyond poking fun at the holders of power, it is a summons, a provocation and a call for introspection among all levels of society. As is often said in Nigeria, when you point with one finger, there are four others pointing back at you. Be(com)ing Nigerian: A Guide, moves between the sublime and the ridiculous, and deftly captures both the hilarity and the horror of Nigeria.
