Meanwhile, previously reported that a student in the UK had helped his white friends to native wears.

Gift Odoh shared on his LinkedIn wall that his British friends got to understand that the media portrayal of Nigerians was actually different from reality.

Gift had mentioned to his white friends he had some cultural attires with him. And his colleagues at Nottingham University, UK wanted to try them out and they did as can be seen in pictures he showcased.

He wrote:

"Very often, my friends ask about Nigeria and our rich culture. So one evening, I casually said to my friends, I have some cultural attires from Nigeria, and they immediately wanted to try them. Funny story, I almost forgot, and they reminded me about the dresses as they were looking forward to it. I think they rocked it pretty well!"
