HAPPY 47TH!

Discuss what you did today in celebration of Nigeria's 47th Independence via the comments!

*UPDATE*

After the parade, a group of hip-hop Naija artists took the stage to sing a remix to Rihanna's "Umbrella" and 50 Cent's "I Get Money." Also at the parade, I bump into Regina Askia, Oliver Mbamara, Sir Citor, Ebbe Bassey, Away Away, and Jim Iyke.

And here are some pictures taken from last year's Nigerian Independence Parade:

At Fusion Night club, the former beauty pageant queen Regina host the official Nigerian Independence Day Parade after party which bought out hip-hop icon Doug E. Fresh, Tony One Week, Jim Iyke, Nnenna from "America's Next Top Model", and Celestina.

To commemorate this historical event, I came across these three YouTube clips of the Nigerian Anthem sung live.

I spent most of the day at home sleeping. Just got out in the evening.

There's nothing really special that happened to me.

Aww that's cool, Oracle and Wienna.

I rep Naija hard rocking my green I heart Naija tee-shirt and I wave my flag proudly.

I tried to watch "AIT" channel but I couldn't unfortunately. :(

I'm working on uploads some pictures I took over the weekend from the parade in the city.
