There are also some funny habits which are part of us and if you visit Nigeria you can look out for them.
1. The "Well done" GreetingYes, "Well done" is a greeting in Nigeria. For instance you're passing a street and you see people working or talking and you know them instead of saying hi & hello or good morning you can say "Well done" or in pidgin/broken English "una well done" which means "well done guys" and everyone knows you mean; I am greeting you. Well done can be used in so many contexts; if you do something wrong like break a plate at home,your parents can say "well done oh" which is like "we are angry with you" and so on. Lol. Everything is context.
2. Nigerian Time
For example someone might say "The conference is scheduled for 10AM, no Nigerian or African Time" this means no late coming. We are relaxed about appointments, you tell someone to get to an event by 10AM he might call all his friends to ask for statistics on how many people present before they leave their house. We all assume people will come late so why not just relax and finish that final episode of your favorite series.
3. Left is Always Wrong.In all ethnic groups in Nigeria you don't dare use your Left hand to give your elders any item. It's a taboo. It's a bit reduced in an age of enlightenment but it's still a thing. It's like an insult....
4. Accent and Nigerians in Diaspora
The English language is not a problem for Nigerians but when a Nigerian travels to another African country they feel you shouldn't have an accent and they eat at you in their minds. When Nigerians who stay few months or years in Europe come back with an accent, they feel it’s fake. Lol.. It's reflex like "how many years this one stay for there wey im dey speak spree spree" meaning "how many years did he/she live abroad and now his back speaking with an accent".In another light if a Nigerian sees another abroad e.g USA you might here something like "hafa na" "how you dey" (how are you) and then they bond like they were born from the same mother. Lol
5. Foreigners eating the local delicacy
No matter how old this is, Nigerians look in amazement when they see a foreigner eating a local delicacy, Fufu and Egusi Soup (a Nigerian delicacy) for instance. Some even take photos and laugh about it.
6. Food equals enjoyment
We love good food and every time Nigerians see someone eating they are like, "This guy dey enjoy" means "this guy is enjoying himself". Like it stands for wealth in a way, alongside other things on the list.
7.Looks always matter
For example the ATM is just down the street, a Nigerian will dress and look good like he was going out for an appointment than looking shabby in anyway. People wear thick hoodies under the harsh hot weather, even if it means wearing sun shades in the Night, just to look good.
