A group of American students made a video titled “I Wanna be a Nigerian” mirroring Travie McCoy and Bruno Mars’ “I wanna be a billionaire.” They made some apt cultural allusions.
According to one of the students:
The purpose and point of this video was to make a video about some of the things we learned about a few of the countries we studied this year in our AP comparative politics class. We picked Nigeria because it was the country we found the most interesting. And also because our teacher has been multiple times and never stops talking about how much he loves it.
Some viewers find it amusing, while some find it condescending. Check it out. What’s your take?
