The Nigerian Nightmare raising the flag high

Kamaru Usman is boldly going where no Nigerian has gone before.

Wizkid entered the Guinness Book of World Records for his collaborative effort with Drake. Tammy Abraham turned down to play for the Three Lions of England so that he could be a Super Eagle.

Stories like these would warm your heart and make you believe in Nigeria. Moving with this theme of carrying the Nigerian flag proudly overseas, the Nigerian Nightmare otherwise known as Kamaru Usman is a man to celebrate.

The Nigerian fighter convincingly defeated his opponent in an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight. Yes, we applaud Kamaru Usman for the victory but this is not why he is the prop of the week.

Kamaru Usman's Nigerian confidence and swagger in the sports of mix martial arts is a testament to the fact that Nigerians will excel anywhere if the conditions are right.

While our sports administrators are clueless on how to win medals at international events, the likes of Kamaru shows that with the right environment and training, the sky is the limit. Nigerians can excel anywhere in the world and Kamaru Usman is a proof of that.
