WINTER IN NIGERIA by Ahudiya Ukiwe

Add captioncredits -
Catchy subject, right? Sort of incorrect, somewhat inappropriate if you may? Same thoughts that flood my mind whenever I see "Summer" anything in Nigeria, like "Summer" lessons, "Summer" sales, "Summer" concerts etc. I was taught in Primary School, correct me if I am wrong (and believe me, my school was and still is posh o, with awesome teachers, no try me) that there are basically two (2) seasons in Nigeria: rainy season and dry season (otherwise known as Harmattan and I call African Winter). The rainy season spans from May to July, then the popular August break and continues into September. The  dry season/harmattan begins mid-December into the middle of the next year.

Like seriously, we Naija people must LITERALLY copy copy everything foreign. I agree there are some foreign material that ought to  be, scratch that, that MAY be copied (like some aspect of fashion, note that I said SOME oooo, not all because we have gone over the top than the originators of some fads; music;) but kai, at least we can take style (subtly) to be original about it. Why should we adopt the Oyibo people's weather when we do not have any similarities, okay maybe save for the mutual heat in their summer. But nevertheless, "Summer" clothes, "Summer" hairstyles, "Summer" gifts? How naaaaaa, how does this apply to us Biko? We might as well have Fall, Spring and Winter options, mscheeew.

It really would be nice, more of ingenuity of our fashion designers, entrepreneurs to award us (being the Nigerian consumers) with adverts such as Harmattan Sales, Harmattan Clothings, Styles to rock in the Harmattan, August break hairdos etc rather than the mediocre mirror of foreign weather and its seasons.

Oh well, simply are my thoughts, my opinion. In all, Naija we hail thee.
