Nigerians Are Loud, You Can Smell Us From Miles Away – Super Eagles Star, Alex Iwobi


Alex Iwobi, the Fulham and Super Eagles player, shared his appreciation for his Nigerian heritage.

“I have always been a big fan of Wizkid” - Alex Iwobi reveals

He mentioned that Nigerians have distinct characteristics that set them apart, such as being very expressive, particularly the Yorubas.

This was disclosed during a recent interview with Kiss Fresh in London, UK.

The host asked, “What do you love about Nigerians and being Nigerian?”

Iwobi replied, “You can smell a Nigerian from a mile away. Our mannerisms are so Nigerian, especially Yoruba people. Yoruba people are so loud.

“My favourite thing about the country is that everyone is so welcoming, rich in hospitality and it’s like one big family. Everyone who is doing well tries to give back to their communities. Every footballer that I am with always try to give back to where they come from. That’s an amazing thing.

“The first thing I do whenever I land in Nigeria and I’m in my hotel room, I order pounded yam and egusi.”
