Irrespective of the economic situation, we have to eat in order to survive this situation and live to tell the upcoming generation our history. As hard as things are here, it is a blessing for many people as they were able to discover themselves and make use of their embedded potentials.

The recession made a young Nigerian lady go into farming since she could not afford to buy a cup of garri for a ridiculous price. Similarly, another lady decided to charge the ladies in the society when she decided to learn the art of POP designs in order to survive.


Our young men now enjoy going into the bush to hunt in order to survive. As interesting as these sound, the situation of things forced people to make those choices. For who would be willing to work or go extra miles if everything you need in life is served you on a platter of gold?

Nigerians have tasted a variety of foods in this period; people ate snake pepper soup when they got bored with fish pepper soup. The snake market has been making remarkable sales since then.

People have stepped on and have found another delightful delicacy to eat. Barbecued frogs seem to be trending for obvious reasons; they are readily available and loaded with enough proteins.
