    I am trying to start something that would serve to strengthen the bonds within the Nigerian community between those who have pursued or are in the process of pursuing a career in medicine. If you're interested please PM me and send me your email.

    Thanks!

    PS: Any nasty, negative, or unnecessary comments will be ignored :D .

    I am Nigerian residing in Florida and am intrigued by what you are talking about send me some more information on what you're proposing. We need to build stronger Nigerian bonds as other minority communities do. I am applying for matriculation of Fall 2009.

    Two questions:

    1) What is "ignit"? Certainly not English.

    2) Do I need to put a /sarcasm tag at the end of everything I post for you to realise I was being facetious?

    Get over yourself. It's a well-known joke around the web. Welcome to the internet.

    any of you guys familiar with "i go chop your dollar"? when i lived in cameroon, my anglophone friend and i would sing that while we sat around the fire and made 'peppa' soup or ero and 'wata' fufu.

    my husband is cameroonian, but francophone.

    i also lived in garoua, which isn't too far.

    Yes, clearly gibberish masquerading as "slang" is the epitome of high comedy. I also find it hilarious that "u" are correcting me on my English, considering you obviously don't understand punctuation, spelling, or grammar. Oh, and just so you don't use the "English isn't my first language" excuse, it's not mine, either. Ya gavaryu pa-russki =)

    just leave the forum already.... no one invited you....At least it clearly says pre-med Nigerians. And if you are not Nigerian or interested in anything remotely African, and only plan to make jokes about notorious emails you get ......then make like a ball and bounce. Cos...none of us find it funny. And go speak ur funny God-forsaken language somewhere else. Or maybe find the b*lls to start yours.:smuggrin:

    Yep most of us know that song....It was funny when it came on CBS at one time...and they said it is a folk song where we Nigerians are glorifying swindling of foreigners or Americans.
    It is just a frigging song that was made to a comedic movie guys....lol:laugh:
    Now that movie was funny...

    My god forsaken language? Hmm, well, last I remember, about 150,000,000 people speak Russian. How many speak Hausa or Yoruba? Riiight.

    Also, you do realise that this is a *public* forum, meaning any thread you create is *public*, yes? If you want private conversation, maybe one of you should start a private site and just link to it on here? Otherwise, your conversation posted in threads remain public.

    Dobri vecher =)

    I wish I had seen that movie. I like that guy. He's got some other good songs too.

    He's definitely better than that coupe decale crap that's so popular in francophone countries, anyways. :)

    Yes ....somebody tell them to stop singing coupe de cale already... that's what all my Cameroonian friends listen to and it all sounds the same all the time. Well, maybe cos I don't understand French. But anyways, hands down, Nigerian music in West Africa is the best:D...Okay maybe I am biased. Check out you tube for more songs....there are plenty there.

    And to VzeDony DutchDosupta.....
    Calm down....no one really wants to learn Russian anyways...:smuggrin:

    And yea...the population of people who speak Hausa and Igbo are surely greater than 100,000 maybe not a grand 150 million, but do not underestimate the number of Nigerians and other Africans that speak that language.

    I speak French and all the songs are the same. They say coupe decale a bunch of times and then rant unintelligible words (not because they're spoken in a tribal language, but because they're nonsense).

    the ones i hate the most are the ones that say decale chinois (which means chinese) where they proceed to do a bunch of "kung fu" moves in the videos.

    Yes, clearly there is no diplomatic or trade reason to learn it...remind me which Hausa or Igbo-speaking nation has veto power in the UN, a nuclear arsenal, a useful military, and a powerful industrial complex not dependant on a former colonial power's infrastructure?

    Oh, wait...:laugh:

    Anyways, I'm done and will leave you to your thread. I'll leave it in good hands, now that Jolie is here. :D

    so much for learning from and, appreciating your HUSBAND'S culture. I've been following the rant on this thread about Cameroonian music and i'm frankly disappointed, being that it's coming from fellow Africans and others who pretend to have open minds. so the kung fu moves and chinese references seem like nonsense to you.. try traveling further south into Yaounde, Bafoussam, Bamenda and observe the chinese infiltration into the economy, how many "shing-shong"(as commonly referred) faces you see around and how its beginning to affect the culture.

    I'm not flipping out on anyone but i just hate ignorant statements. and for whoever made that statement about coupe decaler, just so you know it's not just a trend in cameroon but in several other african countries. too bad if nigerians can't relate or haven't caught up to it. You call that p-square or G-string entertainment **** music??? negro please...

    whoa, calm down. i appreciate my husband's culture, just not that type of music. i didn't know that marrying him required me to love everything about Cameroon. There are lots of things that I love, but coupe decale is not one. People are allowed to like different things and have different opinions. I never insulted francophones or West Africans in general, either.

    while I appreciate that there are lots of asian people in cameroon, i didn't appreciate the stereotyping of all chinese people as doing martial arts. they definitely do not all practice martial arts. i think perpetuating that type of stereotype about any culture is insulting. and, my asian friends definitely didn't like the "heehaw" "chinese" greeting, especially the ones that weren't even chinese.

    as far as objectifying women in music, the francophones are just as guilty as the anglophones/Nigerians on that, but thanks. Sergio Polo? Some of his videos/songs fit the exact description that you gave above. I especially like the one where the women grab their breasts and move them all around. and lest we forget, "elle ne porte pas les calecons. elle porte le string"?
