Reading the replies in this old thread, I can only conclude that many silly peeps were on Nairaland in those early days.

Definitely Nigeria. Besides, we're the most internationally recognized with the likes of TuFace and D'Banj.

Tony Tetuilla -- the guy who sang Fefe na Efe with Tic-Tac

You need to see other Africans I met here. They were so eager to find out if I had brought some Nigerian music. I think we're good -- that's why someone like Tetuilla was able to go down to Ghana and dazzle them.
