  1. Lai Who?.

  2. Nice one Lai,no lie on top their head there.

  3. Chai!!! Why continue with the lie?

  4. can now take your lie international, you've been a local champion for too long. More lies to your mouth.

  5. He should go there and show them his talent so that they will know what Nigerians are passing through.He can't waste his talent here alone.
    Btw congrats to Lai Mohammed.

  6. Uncle Lai,Please Represent us well o, don't go and be lying there shall.. This is Nigeria's first time since 20years, We will count on you just this time 😎

  7. i hope this will be an opportunity to improve tourism in Nigeria? There are many historical places and natural places people can go for tourism and we can make so much money from it. Not every time every time oil. There are many countries who depend on tourism and are doing better than us.
    After this they should ease up on immigration and loosen up a bit on visa for USA, Europe, like make it visa on arrival like Kenya did, that way it will be so easy to visit Nigeria and that will improve tourism
