    If there’s anything we Nigerians can learn from other Africans it’s being pleasant…..
    Watching other Africans communicate it shows me how unpleasant we Nigerians can come across… even if that’s not the intention.

    In retrospect, other Africans can learn the “Hustle” Nature of the Nigerians…. With Nigerians it’s almost in born… almost…

      You have willingly used yourself and your comment as an example to support Akpeno’s claim.

      @Rebellious child you just reminded me of a woman who was called upon by elders in her family, to speak to her about her habit of insulting and cursing people at the slightest provocation. Needless to say, her response was “who is the person that said I insult people? May thunder fire him/her, he will not die well, he’s an idiot bla, bla, bla… ” . well the elders had their answer through her response! Akpeno made a comment about Nigerians and their habit and your response actually confirmed it. Smh!

    I am going to donate $100 to the CAKE village. I absolutely love it. I wish she opens some in most african populated states.

    What an excellent excellent business she has – non profit or not, it is phenomenal.
