"I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me" Dr. Kwame Nkrumah
So I came across this sick branding by Nygerian whilst on Tumblr. African but in the "familiar" style that the tv show friends used. It reminded me of a post I had seen that highlighted the fact that the tv show Friends was pretty much a "rip off" of sorts of the black tv show Living Single. It opened my eyes and reminded me of the world we live in. We're a creative collective.
"The Nigerian and overall West African diaspora community is ever growing, and with every generation, we seem to add a new dimension of art, culture, and diversity. Our goal is to highlight this unique community and capture it to the best of our ability." - (About me, as on the The Nygerian blog)
Fast forward to trying to get this apparel. Living in Australia means that shipping either costs a hell of a lot of money or that websites just don't ship here. The latter was my issue but I figured hey, there's nothing wrong with trying. So I emailed them and to my surprise they were happy to assist me in getting some items sent over. Guys, their customer service is legit 10/10. They reply emails in a timely fashion (even though I didn't) and I got to use Paypal for it all which made everything 10x better. I got a long sleeve shirt and hat (which I'll feature once i get these twists off my head lol). This post has been a long time coming. I definitely recommend that you hit them up as they have heaps more ill items (I know I'll definitely be getting more).
